The Atlantic and the Aspen Institute's fourth annual New York Ideas will be devoted to highlighting the biggest people, ideas and trends that will change the future. Exploring the possibilities that charm and challenge human intelligence and ingenuity, this year's festival will investigate how today's questions become tomorrow's answers.
From how digital and social networks have changed communication habits and the rise of breakthrough female writers in Hollywood, to the development of the creative class and how robots will change how we live, join us as we pause and ask: Where, exactly, are we going?
