Guest Keynote: Automating Ourselves

How many taxi companies could have made their own iPhone app but didn’t? Everyone knows they had better innovate or die, but what does that really mean? How do you know if Silicon Valley is going to come after your industry? Can we learn to innovate faster than our competitors? If computers can do the job of a truck driver, what about a factory worker, or a chef, or a doctor, or you?
Pablos is one of the rare technologists who can both understand and explain these new technologies and their potential. Working with them every day at his lab, his team has taken on problems ranging from hurricane suppression to brain surgery & disease eradication to nuclear energy.

Meet the experts face to face.
