Special Breakfast: Privacy in the Age of Big Data: Striking a Sensible Balance
Proudly Sponsored by Western Digital. Seating is Limited.
Pre-Registration Required

Not long ago, data was primarily useful in a highly transactional way: An individual mammogram, for example, helped a doctor diagnose whether a particular patient had breast cancer. Today, powered by artificial intelligence, big data offers vastly greater benefits to more people. But in an era of spectacular data breaches, consumers rightly are concerned about the privacy implications inherent in big data. At the same time, researchers argue some regulations designed to protect consumer privacy inhibit their ability to fully extract the value deep in the data. How can we find the right balance?

What to Expect in the Age of the Unexpected: The Year Ahead in Politics
From tweets to bots to bizarre bedfellows, the past year in politics has been unlike anything we have ever seen -- and 2018 will be no different with critical midterm congressional elections set for next November. Megan Murphy sits down with two top presidential campaign and administration veterans to discuss the year ahead in politics: Will Democrats take control of the U.S. House of Representatives? What's next in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in U.S. elections? And can the Trump Administration finally find traction in Congress for its agenda?

Cybersecurity and the Next Generation of Threats: Protecting Your Company in 2018
In cybersecurity, physical and digital boundaries no longer are sufficient to protect against attacks. Thanks to the escalation and success of third-party intrusions, attackers find increasingly innovative means to compromise networks of governments, companies and individuals. As a research engineer at Endgame, a company that provides a cyber-operations platform supporting the detection, exploitation and mitigation of cyber threats, Amanda Rousseau has been analyzing and defending against this evolving attacker behavior for more than a decade. She will discuss the greatest threats businesses, governments and individuals face from cyber attacks and what, if anything, can be done to keep your information safe.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence From an AI Pioneer
Artificial Intelligence has been a game changer across all industries. And while statistical machine learning is a powerful tool for discovering patterns in the data, can it produce understanding? Will it enable humans to justify and take reasoned responsibility for individual outcomes? 
Dr. David Ferrucci is an AI pioneer. He is the award-winning AI researcher who led the IBM Watson team from inception in 2006 to success in 2011 when Watson defeated Jeopardy.
Ferrucci believes AI systems should not only propose solutions or answers but should be able to explain why they make sense.
His presentation will look at Elemental Cognition which is focused on creating AI systems that autonomously learn from human language and interaction to become powerful and fluent thought partners facilitating complex decision making.  In short, how the future of AI will enable humans and machines to share an understanding collaborate on exploring the question “why”.
