TFT has been named one of 25 innovators from around the world to be honored by this year's The Tech Museum Awards: Technology Benefiting Humanity. The Tech Museum Awards honor individuals who are applying technology to benefit humanity and spark global change.
The TFT's Indigenous Peoples' Voices Program has developed computer mapping tools incorporating iconic software and automated GPS recording processes for use by non-literate indigenous communities. This technology supports forestry operations that identify and respect local religious, cultural and resource sites.
"The Tech Awards are an opportunity to showcase how technology and innovation are addressing global challenges," said Peter Friess, President of The Tech. "TFT have made remarkable contributions toward significantly improving the human condition."
"The Tech Awards are an incredible honor, recognizing individuals and organizations whose ideas and execution of those ideas are changing the world," said TFT Executive Director, Scott Poynton.
