    AGENDA

    Introductions

    Artificial Intelligence: How AI will reshape every business, including yours
    Artificial intelligence (AI) is a profoundly important set of technologies that are already shaping the way we live our lives, and the ways that businesses operate. As the second era of computing, AI will have as profound of an effect on business and society as did electrification and traditional digital computers. Over the next decade, AI will transform all our lives and will reshape every industry. AI will power autonomous vehicles, smart robots, drones, virtual assistants, and chatbots. It will manage our smart cities, power sentient factories, and oversee our smart energy grids. AI will turbo-charge medical diagnosis, revolutionize customer service, and aid in the discovery of new materials and new pharmaceuticals. AI will reshape every business process, and could reshape the structure of every team. The HR Director and CIO of every company will need to become best friends as IT and HR co-own a blended human-machine labor force. Every IT person needs to understand the capabilities, limitations, and implications of artificial intelligence, no matter their level of technical acumen. This session explains what Artificial Intelligence is and how it can be used. Attendees will then review the main concepts of AI: artificial neural networks, deep learning, supervised learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, and generative adversarial networks. Finally, the session will explore how AI may develop in the future, and how it will require a rethinking of every workflow, and every workplace.

    Blockchain beyond crypto-currencies: Your foundation to create new business value
    Crypto-currencies like Bitcoin are just one of the many applications that can be built on top of Blockchain technology. Blockchain has rapidly become a valuable platform for new value creation across a wide range of industries. Heavyweights like IBM, Walmart, Accenture, Intel, and Bank of America are all placing big bets in this area. Over the last thirty years, we have moved from the client-server era, through the cloud computing era, and now with Blockchain to the era of distributed applications. Blockchain technology removes the need for central authorities, creates trust in a trestles world, reduces transaction costs, and dramatically improves traceability. In this session, you’ll cover Blockchain basics, understand why Blockchain technology is so disruptive, and learn how distributed applications (dApps) enable a new innovation paradigm that brings with it new funding and collaboration models. You’ll then look at examples of how Blockchain is already being used to solve problems in a wide range of industries, from real-estate to supply chain, and healthcare to energy.  Be sure that you are prepared to take full advantage of the increased levels of trust, privacy, traceability, and data security made possible by Blockchain technology. Every IT person needs to understand the implications of this technology to their business.

    Futurecasting Workshop
    In this workshop, you’ll learn all the main steps of the Futurecasting process, a proven foresights process developed by futurist, Brian David Johnson. You will then practice each of these major steps—trend synthesis, personas, rapid futurecasting, science fiction prototyping, and backcasting—and start to develop some plans for the future. Some of these plans will build upon what you learned during the two morning sessions focused on AI and Blockchain. In addition to using Rapid Futurecasting to design simple experiences that you may wish to create, you will also consider the investments, partnerships, R&D effort, and talent plans you might need to succeed. “The best way to predict the future is to design it”. So said engineer, inventor, and futurist Buckminster Fuller. Similar statements have been credited to Alan Kay, Peter Drucker, and even Abraham Lincoln. The bottom line is that in order to seize a leadership position in any market, a company needs to take an active role in defining the future that they want to build, and then develop a comprehensive plan to build that imagined future. Attend this workshop to learn how to deploy the Futurecasting process at your company, or perhaps in your own life, as a way to help you model, plan, and then build the future that you want.

    Privacy laws and regulations continue to evolve rapidly in the U.S. at the federal and state levels. Combined with the European Union GDPR, these emerging standards underline the need for businesses to manage data as a regulated asset. The risks are heightened when developing or implementing emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain and biometric technologies. A key part of governance, both to reduce risk and to enable new innovations, is to perform impact assessments when implementing new technologies into the business, and as part of any new product development or innovation operations. This presentation will focus on privacy regulatory issues associated with emerging technologies, trends in structuring impact assessments, approaches to and objectives of PIAs, and ways in which to integrate PIA processes into the business.

    Monkey See, Monkey Do: Security, Privacy, and Conduct Risk
    • session level icon
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconConference Pass
    11:15 am - 12:00 pm
    While Congress and large technology companies spar over creating a corporate privacy policy, the largest single risk most companies face is from all that is included in conduct risk, which frequently leads to financial or reputational loss. Included in conduct risk examples are former CEOs, but also more frequent examples like the theft and sale of corporate information by insiders or third parties. Though boards of directors are now more aware of the challenges of conduct risk, the “monkey see/monkey do” pattern affects security firms as often as it does Wall Street. This session looks at the root causes of conduct risk: tone at the top, culture, and conflicts of interest and makes recommendations to prepare for our cyber future.
