Each year, SXSW calls upon its creative global community to help identify innovative new ideas and the visionaries behind them. The majority of Conference sessions are sourced and voted on by the SX community from PanelPicker®, along with input from SXSW Staff and the PanelPicker Evaluator Committee.

Design Track Access: Platinum and Interactive Badges receive primary access to sessions in this track. Other badges receive secondary line access.

Dare to imagine a future where we can hack our bodies, cure insomnia, make energy available to every human, create schools for lifelong learning, feed astronauts on their way to Mars, and make disabilities a thing of the past.
