Every industry is set to be transformed as an era of hyper connectivity becomes the new norm. The result? Massive business model disruption; the rapid emergence of new competitors; industries in which customers empowered with mobile devices control a wide variety of devices that are a part of their daily lives; unique opportunities for deep analytical insight into trends and opportunities emerging in industries; a reinvention of manufacturing, logistics, retail, healthcare and other industries because of consumers that are empowered, connected, and enabled with a new form of lifestyle management that we’ve never witnessed before.

The Internet of Things is real, and it is unfolding at a blistering pace. We’re in the era of connected thermostats that link to an intelligent energy grid; autonomous vehicle technology that is self-aware, and networked into sophisticated, intelligent highway flow control systems. A connected trucking fleet that is self-diagnostic, predictive. Intelligent home appliances that link to packaged food products that automatically upload carb, sodium and other dietary information as part of an overall health and wellness program.

Jim Carroll has been talking on stage about the Internet of things since the late 1990s, when he began using the phrase “hyper connectivity” to describe a world in which “every device that is a part of our daily lives is about to become plugged in.” Since then, he has delivered his insight on the topic to a wide variety of organizations: several global technology leaders with a keynote talk on the future of home automation; several of the world’s largest HVAC companies about what happens when a global, intelligent home and industrial energy infrastructure emerges through widespread connectivity; consumer, food and packaged goods conferences about the impact of intelligent packaging. He has been booked by many leading global health care organizations for keynotes that have focused on what happens when consumers start aligning their wellness strategies through their own personal healthcare infrastructure.

The Internet of Things is a substantive, transformative trend that will provide more change in every industry in the next ten years than they’ve seen in the last thirty. Jim Carroll already over a dozen years of on-stage experience with the topic, and can help you understand the strategies, risks and opportunities that you need to be aware of you move into a hyperconnected future.

To say that we live in a fast world would be an understatement. Small, quick upstarts like Square are challenging the global credit card industry, at the same that GPS based driver monitoring devices are rewriting the rules of the auto insurance industry. The NEST Learning Thermostat morphs from a quiet startup to a worthy challenger to industrial energy device powerhouses. Autonomous vehicle technology leads us to road trains and a more rapid emergence of intelligent highway infrastructure. We’re in the era of the end of incumbency, in which small dominates big, fast trumps ponderous, and indecision spawns failure. Everywhere we look, we can see acceleration, speed, and velocity: and in times like these, time isn’t a luxury.

For any software professional, these trends matter — because we are at the dawn of a time in which “software is poised to take over the world.” That’s not an understatement – it’s a reality. And with that trend, the role of Agile is shifting, from a means of bringing reproducibility, consistency and sanity to the software development process — to a foundation for “what comes next.” It’s clear that the values and practices behind Agile, such as the focus on testing, tight feedback cycles and accelerated learning, continuous or frequent releases, responding to fast change, serve as the backbone of what you need to be a fast organization.  Today, companies like Google can succeed because of their ability to get new functionality out to end users quickly, in order to test the market, or to respond to accelerating trends.

Agile is a great facilitator to help you be fast. Join us as Jim Carroll takes us on a voyage into how the new rules of business and technology are providing for a reality in which the spirit of agility isn’t just an option – it’s the new normal.

Powerful digital devices are now affordable "weapons of mass instruction" for all learners. Providing them to every student, as well as teachers who know how to harness their power for learning, has become the civil rights–indeed, the human rights–issue of our time, since education is the key to violence reduction, health care, employment, and community-building. The next generation of digital tools will include wearable devices that enable students to track and improve their own behaviors. Dr. Milton Chen will present examples of projects that enable students to learn more, faster than in previous generations, enabled by hardware, software, rich Internet resources, and networks of mentors. He will show examples of these innovative practices from Edutopia.org, the Lucas Foundation’s multimedia Web site and its archive of documentaries, available for free download and embedding.

Aneesh Chopra (Exclusively WSB)

From President Obama’s first full day in office to President Trump’s new Office of American Innovation, the United States has directed resources to foster a more open, innovative government. Aneesh Chopra served as the nation’s first chief technology officer and his legacy of private-sector collaboration, including his work with health and workforce data, continues to offer growth opportunities throughout the economy. His 2014 book, Innovative State: How New Technologies Can Transform Government, describes the “impatient convening” role that government should play: opening up data and encouraging its use, convening the private sector in the design and adoption of standards, and fostering an ecosystem of entrepreneurs and innovators to join in solving problems. 

In this enlightening presentation, Chopra explores:

  • Future possibilities for data innovation to improve key growth markets, including health care, energy, and education
  • How public data and private-sector analytic techniques can improve matchmaking between employers, job seekers, and training programs
  • Insights on how organizations can apply similar approaches to develop new products and deploy innovative services to meet growing customer demands

Aneesh Chopra (Exclusively WSB)

As the debate over the future of the Affordable Care Act rages in Washington, one set of reforms continues unabated: the movement to transform the way we deliver health care. As the first U.S. chief technology officer, Aneesh Chopra worked to align payment reform with advances in health IT and to shift to open more government-held health data—changes that are ushering in a golden era of IT-fueled care delivery innovation.

In this presentation, Chopra:

  • Reviews recent efforts to open up data across electronic health records, payers, and the government to foster a growing ecosystem of tech-enabled services that are tackling waste and boosting care quality
  • Explains how these efforts have helped consumers take a more active role in navigating the health-care delivery system and making better decisions at each step of their care journey
  • Offers health-care organizations a pragmatic path to building the necessary foundation for organizing, enriching, and (securely) sharing patient health data, including taking full advantage of the emerging “health internet”
  • Identifies the efforts worth advancing even in this period of policy uncertainty 

The only constant is change, and the rate of change is increasing. 40% of today’s Fortune 500 companies are predicted to disappear in the next 10 years. Competition is no longer the multinational overseas; instead, it’s the exponential entrepreneur creating companies like Uber, Airbnb, DropBox, Oculus, Whatsapp, SpaceX and Tesla.

Disruption is also coming from data-driven tech giants who are entering into adjacent fields: Google into the automotive industry, Apple into the music industry, Facebook into the global telecom industry, and IBM Watson into healthcare.

As Diamandis will detail, much of this transformation is a result of rapidly accelerating exponential technologies such as Infinite Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, 3D Printing, Sensors, Networks, and Synthetic Biology. During this keynote, you will get a real sense of exponential growth, the origins of Moore’s Law, and understand how the 6 D’s—Digitization, Deception, Disruption, Dematerialization, Demonetization and Democratization—will impact your products and services.

Diamandis is the co-founder and executive chairman of Singularity University, the leading institution for the study of exponentially growing technologies. He counsels many of today’s Fortune 500 executive teams and world leaders on the impact of these technologies. In addition, Diamandis is the founder or co-founder of 17 companies using these exponential technologies to transform a number of industries.

In this highly visual and powerful keynote, Diamandis gives the audience a true understanding of the immediacy of these disruptions. Today’s companies cannot remain stagnant. They must evolve or they will die. You are either disrupting your own business model or someone else will.

This presentation will help you:

  • Understand the rate of technological change and where it’s going;
  • Understand how the 6 D’s—Digitization, Deception, Disruption, Dematerialization, Demonetization and Democratization—will impact your products and services.
  • Get an understanding of what is coming to market in the next 2 to 5 years, and how these technologies are converging to transform industries;
  • Visualize the disruptive power of exponentially growing technologies;
  • Identify opportunities to innovate and transform your own business model before someone else does.

As we become a more data-driven society, we face new questions of how best to use all this new data to improve human decision-making. Annie Duke explores the ways in which big data has the potential to overcome robust irrationalities in how we process information and solve for the problem of uncertainty. She also points out the pitfalls and dangers of big data and provides advice about how data is aggregated and collected and where the “human element” still needs to be in control of the analysis in order to interpret and model the data.

Industrial Revolution 2.0—it's the next turning point in human history and we’re right in the middle of it.

Industrial Revolution 2.0 has been about the birth, adolescence and young adulthood of the Internet. It's been about communicating, relating, evaluating and buying. From social media to the Maker Movement, this revolution has shifted the way we live, work and interact with one another. It revolves around the newfound global accessibility of making our own solutions. Creator of one of TIME magazine’s “Top 50 Inventions” with little more than $70 of over-the-counter supplies, Mick Ebeling is uniquely qualified to discuss the factors that make this the most exciting time in modern history, and how to leverage those factors for the benefit of business and the betterment of society.

Every day, we hear new stories about data: how much there is, how fast it moves, how it’s used for good or ill. Data permeates our organizations, our educational and legal systems, and our society—even our dinner-table conversation. Now that we live in a data-rich world, we need to educate ourselves about what we can do—as leaders, citizens and consumers—to use it to our best advantage.

As leaders, we crave insight that we can use to make decisions, yet we fear the risks associated with data collection. As individuals, we crave utility and convenience, yet we simultaneously fear loss of control over our privacy and our digital identities.

In clear and engaging language and with relevant, timely examples, this talk explains just why we struggle with these topics, and proposes a framework to better understand and address how we extract insight from data; and how we use it in such a way as to earn and protect trust: the trust of customers, constituents, patients and partners.

Earl Warren, former chief justice of the United States, once said, “In civilized life, law floats in a sea of ethics.” As data becomes ubiquitous, more integrated and more portable, the morass of ethical issues will only grow. Leaders who are versed in these issues will be better prepared to address them head-on, and, in doing so, protect the trust and loyalty of their customers and shareholders, and the good will of their communities.

In engaging language and with relevant, timely examples, industry analyst Susan Etlinger distills the discussion of digital ethics and data privacy into a clear framework that leaders can use to address existing digital ethics issues and plan for emerging ones. She brings together perspectives from academia, law, policy, corporations and data scientists to shed light on the current and emerging legal and ethical issues related to data collection, aggregation, analysis, storage and usage, and the way we communicate about these practices.
