SXSW 2017 - chatbots, wearables and Stephen Wolfram

South by Southwest is not just a single thing. It is a collection of conferences, festivals, events that consume the whole of downtown Austin, Texas. Generally, the tech events we go to are neatly contained in a singular venue, where everyone is brought to socialise and enjoy a series of talks for a reasonable duration of 1-3 days. SXSW lasts for a good week and a half, takes over the city and throws everyone into a fascinating mix of inspiration and madness.

All notes and ideas are originated from talks, but are not necessarily direct quotes.
