Speakers on the next big tech breakthrough

Grid of Jacobstein, Steep, Wheeler, and Wadhwa

It’s been 10 years this week since Apple introduced the iPhone, upending telecomm and in many ways changing the world. These speakers look at the disruptive technologies paving the way for the next “big thing”—

AI and Robotics
Neil Jacobstein is Chair of the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Track at Singularity. Neil is unique in that he breaks down complex AI advances into easy-to-understand presentations with great visuals (think videos of robots doing backflips). He has consulted on AI research and development projects for NASA, GM, and Ford, and talks about the ways companies will use AI to cut costs, work smarter, and solve age-old problems.

Internet of Things and Connected Cities
Michael Steep is the Executive Director of Stanford’s Digital Cities Program. A former Silicon Valley executive who led innovative consulting for companies including BMW, Boeing, and Google, he talks about how businesses can implement game-changing technology and where disruptive innovation comes from.

Tom Wheeler is the former Chairman of the FCC and a serial entrepreneur. He’s spent the last four decades translating breakthrough technologies into new products and services. He visited our office earlier this year and gave one of the most eye-opening speeches on blockchain (and web 3.0) I’ve seen—he did a tremendous job actually explain what it is, as well as potential applications.

Autonomous Cars
Vivek Wadhwa is a well-known futurist and emerging tech expert who was named one of the “Most Influential Minds in Tech” by TIME. He’s taught at Duke, Stanford, and Harvard, is a syndicated columnist for Washington Post, and his new book The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Our Technology Choices Will Create the Future was published this year.
