    Join Silicon Valley Legend Thomas Siebel

    Our world is entering a new era driven by AI, elastic cloud computing, big data, machine learning, predictive analytics and IoT that will reshape business and social processes. Silicon Valley legend Thomas M. Siebel, C3 IoT Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer, will share his vision for how these new and disruptive technologies will shape our future. Join us for “IoT: AI at Enterprise Scale.”

    But there’s more! Distributed ledgers (“blockchain”), secure identity mechanisms, and end-to-end encryption have the potential to revolutionize a wide range of applications. Prof. Alex ‘Sandy’ Pentland, PhD ‘82, MIT Media Lab will lead a panel discussion about how these technologies will transform your business model and change the way you do business. Join us for “Trusted Data: The Role of Blockchain, Secure Identity, and Encryption.”
    These forces make it clear that your company, in fact every company, has become a technology company. Every business strategy has digital as a core component and CEOs must decide how to delegate technology leadership. Paul Michelman, Editor in Chief, MIT Sloan Management Review, will lead a panel discussion to explore the question, “Who’s Really Responsible for Technology?”
