Here’s an interesting event for the tech enthusiast with a passion for history.

On Jan. 28 Future Tense, that partnership between Slate, Arizona State University and New America, will host a panel discussion on how modern technology can be used to protect relics of the past.
Titled “Deploying Technology to Rescue the Past,” the discussion will ask how tech like drones and geospatial sensing can be used to protect cultural relics from development, destruction by ISIS, etc.
The conversation will be led by three experts in the area — Kirk Johnson, a director at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural HistoryScott Branting, assistant professor of archeology at the University of Central Florida (among other roles); and Salam Al Kuntar, assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania.
Interested? You can RSVP here.
