Re-imaging technology for the future generation

This event has happened

Kano is a London-based tech company with a simple mission – to give the control of technology back to people by making it accessible, digestible and transparent.

We carry supercomputers in our pockets, more powerful than those that took us to the moon. But billions of us simply swipe, tap, swipe, staring at sealed, secretive screens. Kano is trying to open up the black box to let people look inside and take control.

There are a lot of concerns around technology; information overload, social media addiction, big data, and environmental impacts to name a few. In this talk, we will aim to break down our approaches in responding to these worries and what actions we take to empower creating instead of just consuming technology. We will discuss how we break down complex computing and software principles in our physical kits and digital tools – to encourage creativity and curiosity in children as well as adults.
