AI, Robots, Smart Apps and Senior Care – the Future is Near
Tech expert Vivek Wadhwa to speak at 2018 NIC Fall Conference
Global tech entrepreneur, author, academic and advocate, Vivek Wadhwa, will be the 2018 NIC Fall Conference luncheon speaker. Wadhwa will focus on the practical solutions that new technological advances will make possible in the near future. The concept of robots disrupting seniors housing and care, or artificial intelligence and healthcare apps improving property performance may sound like science fiction today, but, according to Wadhwa, the tech innovations that will change the industry are just around the corner.
For those interested in how tech solutions will impact the way they do business, Vivek Wadhwa’s presentation will be thought-provoking and insightful. A Distinguished Fellow at Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Engineering, he is a globally syndicated columnist for The Washington Post and author of several books: “The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Our Technology Choices Will Create the Future”; “The Immigrant Exodus: Why America Is Losing the Global Race to Capture Entrepreneurial Talent”—named by The Economist as a Book of the Year of 2012; and “Innovating Women: The Changing Face of Technology”—a documentation of the struggles and triumphs of women. Wadhwa has held appointments at Duke University, Stanford Law School, Harvard Law School, Emory University, and Singularity University.
In the coming days, NIC will announce our opening general session speaker, a highly sought-after global figure, who will complement Wadhwa’s presentation, and reflect our theme, with a conversation on the U.S. and global economic landscape.
