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 December 2020 we were moving the annual Thingscon conference online, with a week of small scale activities on good things from the responsible IoT and beyond. Visit to find out more.
