NEW YORK

Back for its third year, the Seven on Seven Conference challenges seven artist-technologist teams of two to develop a new idea or concept – be it an application, social media platform, artwork, product, or whatever else they can dream up – over the course of a single day.

The final results will be presented at the conference, which will also include a keynote speech by New York Times journalist and author Evgeny Morozov.
