TECHTalks Pittsburgh

Our Top Highlights from TECHTalks Pittsburgh

Joined by over 100 of Pittsburgh’s leading technology enthusiasts, innovators, and business leaders, we had the opportunity to explore the latest and greatest developments in tech, along with some awesome ideas that are predicted to shape the future of our industry.

The underlying theme of Pittsburgh’s event was that the time to innovate has already past, and many companies are falling behind the “eight ball” when it comes to technology. NOW is the time to catch up, and educate others on how to leverage technology to advance in the digital age.

Featuring five keynote speakers, several who are Pittsburgh-natives, we dove head-first into a variety of topics including Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Digital Transformation, Virtual Reality, and more.

There’s no denying that TECHTalks Pittsburgh was one for the books, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to bring the Pittsburgh community together for an afternoon of great conversation, networking, and learning something new.
