This year Techonomy moves to the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay, November 9-11, on the cliffs south of San Francisco, near Silicon Valley.
We’ll explore how technology transforms and accelerates progress for both business and society. Techonomy isn’t a tech conference; we’re interested in how technology transforms everything else. The world is facing myriad and urgent challenges, and we aim to help people better understand how tech can address them.
Our program focuses a lot on business, because so much of society’s transformative energy is concentrated there. Businesses must aggressively and consciously harness the power of tech, while simultaneously partnering with governments, civil society, and increasingly, empowered citizens. As the tools of progress shift, individuals and institutions must rethink how they adapt and contribute.
Our speakers will include:
|Autodesk’s Carl Bass||Digital-privacy-critic Jaron Lanier|
|Intel’s Genevieve Bell||ResearchGate’s Ijad Madisch|
|Salesforce’s Marc Benioff||Coca-Cola’s Guy Wollaert|
|MIT’s Ed Boyden||Former Infosys CEO Nandan Nilekani|
|Stripe’s Patrick Collison||The FCC’s Jessica Rosenworcel|
|Intuit’s Scott Cook||Thiel Capital’s Peter Thiel|
|Stanford’s Drew Endy||Shapeways’ Marleen Vogelaar|
|Pfizer’s Geno Germano||LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner|
|Citi’s Deborah Hopkins||LinkedIn and Greylock Partners’ Reid Hoffman|
