The massive power of technology companies has been a hot topic among politicians. The most recent example was Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s proposed changes to how big tech companies like Amazon and Facebook do business.

A panel of experts from the political, legal and technology sectors will be discussing how realistic some of these proposals are and if they’re likely to face legal challenges during News and Brews: Regulating Big Tech on March 21.

If you’re looking to get away from politics, you can head over to the Living Computers Museum for an overview of how filmmaking has evolved over the last 50 years. The panel, featuring speakers from multiple corners of the film industry, will focus on a number of topics including production equipment and computer graphics imaging. Living with Tech: Moviemaking also takes place on March 21.
