The Big Nine: How the Tech Titans and their Thinking Machines Will Change Humanity

Amy Webb
Author, Founder of the Future Today Institute, Professor
NYU Stern School of Business

“Can machines think?” That sentence begins Alan Turing’s famous 1950 paper on machine intelligence. For as long as we’ve had computers, humans have been trying to anthropomorphize them. Conversation between humans and machines — and ultimately machines with each other — is the foundation upon which modern AI is being built. Right now, we are on the brink of a great AI awakening, says Amy Webb. So what happens when we get what we’ve always said we want? What happens when the machines really do learn not just to think – but are trained to out-think us humans? In this opening keynote, Amy will explain how the big nine corporations – Amazon, Google, Facebook, Tencent, Baidu, Alibaba, Microsoft, IBM and Apple – are becoming the new gods of AI and how they may be short-changing our futures to reap immediate financial gain. She will point out a path for liberating us from algorithmic decision-makers and powerful corporations. She’ll also offer a “call to arms” about the broken nature of artificial intelligence and what technology leaders can (and should) do to help turn the human-machine relationship on its head.

Turning Your IT Staff into Articulate Ambassadors of the Company’s Brand: A Collaborative Workshop

Kare Anderson
Communications Coach and Author of “Moving From Me to We”

Perhaps the biggest missed opportunity to attract more customers — and retain top talent — is to support your employees in engaging with customers, prospects and other key stakeholders in timely, helpful ways. With the right rules in place and the appropriate training, employees who are entrusted to be brand ambassadors are likely to strengthen relationships inside and outside the company — as well as spotting problems to solve or opportunities to innovate. In this highly interactive workshop, communications expert Kare Anderson will share some tools, techniques and frameworks that CIOs can use to turn IT employees into credible, compelling brand ambassadors. She’ll teach you how to optimize the talent in your group to strengthen relationships with key stakeholders and spur greater learning and esprit de corps among your employees.

Practical Strategies for Managing Risk and Negotiating Cloud Contracts: An Expert Panel & CIO Workshop

Matthew Karlyn
Partner
Morrison & Foerster LLP

Managing traditional vendor contracts is a skill most CIOs have mastered. But the new realities of negotiating with cloud providers — over everything from data aggregation and service levels to exit clauses — can be grim. “Expensive and agonizing” is how one CIO described a recent decision to change from one major cloud vendor to another. “As a business leader enabling digital transformation, how do I keep the flexibility I need in a way that preserves my options?” Answering that question will be the focus of this highly practical CIO panel discussion and workshop session with Boston-based IT attorney Matt Karlyn, who negotiates cloud deals for a living. We’ll follow our panel conversation with collaborative table discussions and wrap up with an additional Q&A with Matt for more specific legal advice and ideas.
