ThingsCon is a global initiative to explore and promote the development of fair, responsible, and human-centric technologies for the IoT and beyond. We create events, resources, publications and tools for a diverse community of practitioners to promote and implement better practices across IoT, artificial intelligence, machine learning and related technology with a human impact.

In June we organized for the first time a Summer Edition; check the event page.

Last 9 December, we organized an end-of-year event in unconference style in Rotterdam (Het Nieuwe Instituut). Find more information via the event page.
