In as little as ten years, the very concept of money will have been forever changed. And the fact is, its happening now in real time.

Yet making sense of the reality is a challenge. Headlines scream of an ongoing rise but heightened volatility with the grandfather of all crypto-currencies, Bitcoin. At the same time, a new vocabulary has emerged that involve radical new concepts, the decentralization of authority, and rapid hyperinnovation: blockchain, Ethereum, ASIC and currency miners, hard forks and smart contracts!

What does it mean when Jamie Dymon, the head of  JPMorgan Chase calls Bitcoin a fraud and the people who buy it "stupid," and yet at the same time, the head of the IMF says that Bitcoin could give existing currencies and monetary policy a run for their money? When a cryptocurrency goes from a valuation of a few hundred dollars to over $10,000 in a matter of months? When 2018 will be defined by an acceleration of the acceptance of distributed ledger concepts at the same time that a horde of fraud artists invade this fascinating new world. 

And most important of all, what does it mean to your business and your business model? Is it a fraud, or is it a bubble? What's real, and what's not? Are we in the midst of the latest Tulip and dot.com phrase, or is there substantial change underway?

In this keynote, Futurist and technology expert Jim Carroll peels away the layers of the world of cryptocurrency, outlining the challenges and opportunities that come with the end of the concept of money as we know it. These are truly transformative times - for the realty of blockchain goes far beyond the current hype surrounding Bitcoin. The concept of distributed ledgers will change entire industries, challenge the very nature of the legal concept of offer and acceptance, and unleash a torrent of hyper innovation around business models.

Jims' clients include NASA, Disney, Johnson and Johnson, Mercedes Benz and many more. He has shared his insight on the future around the world, with events in Tokyo, London, Budapest, Dubai, Sydney, Brussels, Munich, and across North America.

Ash Carter (Exclusively WSB)

Like all organizations, the Defense Department is operating at a time of global change. The rapidly growing Asia-Pacific is increasingly becoming the world’s economic, political and military center of gravity. An emboldened and newly aggressive Russia is modernizing its tactical, technological and cyber intelligence capabilities. And the threat of terrorism, whether from the Islamic State or homegrown ‘lone-wolf’ actors, must be countered. Ash Carter describes the new defense playbook and demonstrates how to take the lessons of history and leverage our nation’s and military’s unique strengths in new ways for new threats. He demonstrates how to develop more agile strategies that prioritize the expansion of cybersecurity capabilities and other modern tools alongside continued dynamic diplomacy. As the U.S. adapts its leadership role in a changing global landscape, he deftly outlines the issues and the fights that will define the years to come.

Ash Carter (Exclusively WSB)

As the first Defense Secretary to travel to Silicon Valley in over 20 years, Ash Carter prioritizes the need for rebuilding the partnerships between proven private-sector visionaries and the public sector in order to hone the U.S. military’s unrivaled edge. An experienced technologist with deep experience and roots in America’s tech and investment communities, Carter implemented revolutionary new programs at the Defense Department, drawing in the brightest minds from leading companies like Google and Apple and elsewhere to help the Pentagon “think outside its five-sided box,” and change how the Defense Department develops technology, conducts military operations, and recruits, trains and retains its people. With a creative, inclusive approach, Carter provides strategies for the flexible thinking necessary to promote security in the cyber age, compete for talent in a 21st-century workforce, and develop leading new technologies.

Aneesh Chopra (Exclusively WSB)

The exponential growth of data throughout the economy holds both promise and peril. As the first U.S. chief technology officer, Aneesh Chopra played a pivotal role in the government’s decision to open up more data for commercial use, regulate interoperability standards to boost competition, and invest in breakthrough technologies to address the growing cybersecurity threat. While seemingly at odds—reaping the economic benefits of open collaboration while minimizing the risks of cyber-attacks—Chopra worked to advance technical and business model solutions to meet these challenges through an open innovation strategy.

Drawing on his expertise balancing the economic benefits of greater collaboration with the potential costs of rising cybersecurity threats, Chopra:

  • Informs organizations how to advance their own growth strategies
  • Shares ideas on how the private sector and government can work together in order to identify common threats, without undermining privacy
  • Addresses the current challenges in our legal framework and the options available to mitigate cybersecurity threats
  • Identifies what each individual and organization can do to make our networks more secure and reliable while reaping the economic gains from the greater use of data

We live in an unpredictable and increasingly volatile global security environment. As globalization is impacting nearly every aspect of human activity, people, products and information are flowing across borders at unprecedented speed and volume, acting as catalysts for economic development while also increasing societal tensions, competition for resources and political instability. The recent hacks at Sony, Target and Neiman Marcus serve as prime examples of how vulnerable many technology and security systems truly are. In this presentation, General Dempsey provides rich insight to the impacts of a new cyber domain on security, business and legislation, and will inform and captivate audiences of any industry mindful of the rapidly changing and complex nature of this increasing threat.

With the emergence of competitors like a resurgent Russia and a rising China, the advent of new technologies and military capabilities, and increased competition in domains like space and cyberspace, the United States can no longer take its technological edge for granted. Decades ago, most significant technologies originated in the United States, with the bulk of research and development sponsored by the Department of Defense. Today, while the government remains an important sponsor of innovation, the cutting edge of technological innovation in many areas has shifted to the commercial sector. And with a technology base that is now truly global, other countries are investing heavily to catch up. Flournoy will discuss the critical questions these new realities raise for industry leaders and policymakers: How can our national security community better access and leverage new commercial technologies to keep the country safe? How can we restore trust and improve the partnership between government and the tech community in the post-Snowden era? And how can traditional technology sources for government (e.g., defense contractors) be part of the solution in helping the government access and adapt cutting-edge technologies?

Robert Gates (Exclusively WSB)

Robert Gates will speak to a wide variety of domestic and global issues and engage in a Q&A session with the audience.

Topic areas include:

  • Global Politics and U.S. Foreign Policy
  • U.S. Intelligence, Defense Strategies and Global Cybersecurity Threats
  • Leadership, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution

Julius Genachowski (Exclusively WSB)

Given his breadth and depth of experience leading organizations in both the public and private sector, Julius Genachowski can also address:

  • Cyber Security—How to Stay Ahead and What It Means to the Future of America
  • Leadership in Complex Organizations
  • The Role of Public Policy in Driving Private Investment and Innovation
  • Technology and the Future of Education
  • How Innovation Will Drive Change in Health Care

Rudy Giuliani (Exclusively WSB)

Recent geopolitical events are quickly becoming serious areas of concern to corporations as the risks to global security increase with potential repercussions in the critical areas of information sharing, cyber security and crisis management. Rudy Giuliani invokes his experience in the 9-11 attacks’ aftermath to make a compelling case regarding the importance of creating a national “determination and will to continue the war on terrorism.” A leader in strategic consulting, emergency preparedness and fiscal responsibility, Giuliani cites specific and relevant examples from his work as a partner in the international law firm Bracewell & Giuliani and leaves audiences with a stark reminder of how doing business in an ever-shrinking world has new challenges that can and must be surmounted.
