MIT Technology Review's mission is to equip audiences with the intelligence to understand a world shaped by technology. We identify the technologies and innovators who have the greatest potential to change business, society, and the world for the better.

EmTech MIT brings this journalism to life. It's an opportunity to discover future trends and begin to understand the technologies that will drive the new global economy. It's where tech, business, and culture converge, and where you gain access to the most innovative people and companies in the world.

From AI and robotics to data-driven health care and future cities, the 15th annual EmTech MIT explores technologies highlighted in the recent 10 Breakthrough Technologies list and celebrates the 2015 Innovators Under 35.


  • Augmented Knowledge

    Our daily experience will be redefined as breakthroughs in AI make connected devices smarter, weaving them seamlessly into our environments at home, at work, and on the go.

  • Better Living Through Data

    From powerful new tools for sharing and analyzing genetic information to the increasingly sophisticated biometric tracking capabilities of connected fitness devices, data-driven, personalized health care has arrived.

  • Infinite

    Falling oil prices have many concerned about continued investment in renewable energy sources. We’ll look at innovators working to ensure that we take advantage of this trend to further expand our alternatives.

  • Rethinking Urban Infrastructure

    Older cities face aging infrastructure, while rapid urbanization has new cities under pressure to deliver sustainable services quickly. Around the world, cities are focusing on new technologies to help prepare for dramatic population growth.

  • Robots Among Us

    Recent advances mean we will see robots deployed in many global industries and in new and surprising ways. Leading innovators are designing machines to interact more naturally—and safely—with humans in our existing environments, as well as reimaging productivity for the future.
