Main Stage

Whatever happened to my Jetson's flying car and moon bases from the movie 2001. The past vision of the future has both hits and misses. Perry will explore the advances in technology and talk about the limitations both from a technical point of view and a business point of view. What will the future look like in 2027 and 2032? We'll explore interesting advances in engineering, technology, materials, and communications that will help define our future. We will also look at grand challenges and geopolitical issues that will either drive future opportunities or conflict. This talk should entertain, inspire, and inform technology leaders on what the next 10 years looks like.
