GIGAOM CHANGE EMPOWERING BUSINESS LEADERS OF TODAY TO THRIVE IN A WORLD OF TOMORROW.
SUMMIT BRINGS TOGETHER LEADERS FROM AI, NANOTECH, CYBERSECURITY, ROBOTICS, VIRTUAL REALITY AND OTHER HOT TECHNOLOGIES THAT WILL IMPACT INDUSTRY.
Austin, TX — August 29, 2016 — Gigaom returns to the event stage in Austin with Gigaom Change, September 21 through September 23 in Austin, TX. This enterprise leader’s summit will bring together a growing community of exponential leaders, technology experts, entrepreneurs and keynote panelists to decode how seven key enterprise technologies are changing the business world, and how to level-up to the vast potential that exists within this rapidly advancing technological future.
Helping bridge the gap between today’s business operations and tomorrow’s demanding expectations, Gigaom Change will answer the questions that every business leader is pondering: what’s the state-of-the-art, what’s coming next and as we look to the future what do we need to know to begin confidently applying these ideas.
“Topics that were the mainstay of science fiction just decades ago are literally happening right now. The impact of these technologies cannot be overstated,” said Gigaom publisher and author, Byron Reese. “But in today’s busy world, it’s hard to know more than just a few general concepts. Gigaom Change was created to solve that.”
This event will take place over two and a half days of keynote panels with a lineup of speakers that are visionaries making R&D and proof of concept strategic investments to bring concept to reality. Three top industry experts in each of the following industries will highlight the current impact these innovations are having, then pivot toward what will be possible in the future: Robotics, AR/VR/MR, Nanotechnology, Human-Machine Interface, 3D+ Printing, AI and Cybersecurity.
The current speaker lists includes leading theorists and visionaries like Robert Metcalfe, Professor of Innovation, Murchison Fellow of Free Enterprise at the University of Texas; Rob High, IBM Fellow, Vice President and CTO, IBM Watson. It also includes practitioners who are actively implementing these technologies within companies; like Shane Wall, CTO and Global Head HP Labs; Melonee Wise, CEO Retch Robotics; Stan Deans, President of UPS Global Logistics and Distribution; and Rohit Prasad, Vice President and Head Scientist, Amazon Alexa. We will hear from Sapient about AI, IBM about nanotech, Softbank about robots and a wide range of other innovators creating solutions for visionary enterprises.
Topics will be enlivened by the amazing set of attendees coming from Amazon, Bain, Best Buy, Disney, Deloitte, Intel, Nokia, Roku and Xerox, plus many, many more companies who are all managing the enormous amount of technical change that is sweeping our world.
