Ever-higher levels of sophisticated cyber threats beg for unprecedented collaboration even among fierce competitors. How should the tech community collaborate to outfox criminals?
Two forward-looking thought leaders will discuss the opportunities to rethink purposes, processes, and actions in order to thrive and
do the right thing in the times ahead.
New cyber attacks – Spectre, Meltdown, and Foreshadow – affected semiconductors and showed today’s defenses – focused on software – aren’t enough to protect computer hardware against criminals. Sheer volume of cyber threats requires radical collaboration even among fierce competitors to foil criminals. Tackling technical, organizational, and anti-trust restrictions against data swapping are essential to create unprecedented collaboration among companies.
Major car and aircraft makers, startups, network operators, and investors are taking the business of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) seriously. Urban, electric, air taxis could be operational in 10 years. Complex issues in mix – AI, machine vision, batteries, regulations, safety, and affordability.
World’s top climate scientists warn that because petroleum product consumption is galloping internationally, keeping the Earth’s temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius isn’t enough to prevent danger to billions of people. Limiting the rise to 1.5 C is a must. Vastly better carbon management to turn CO2 from a liability to neutral or an asset is possible with today’s new working innovations and new ones. Our experts discuss what it will take to generate emissions-free electricity, create alternative materials, and drastically reduce CO2 from our world’s air by 2050.
Globally, a small, but growing, number of businesses and community resources are virtual power plants, which seamlessly sidestep electric utilities. But the advent of microgrids poses challenges about cost, security, reliability, resilience, and power-generation connections. How will our new world of energy play out?
