And the chip giant’s CEO Brian Krzanich will deliver a keynote address on what's next in consumer technology, the key drivers shaping the next wave of innovation, and the company's plans for bringing amazing experiences to life.
The company's stand will feature discussions – or fireside chats as Intel is calling them – with Intel executives, industry leaders and surprise guests on topics ranging from wearable computing, to diversity in tech and the future of robotics.
The first will discuss how wearable technology is creating a new playing field for innovation as lifestyle brands team with technology companies to pursue this emerging category. On the stand will be leaders in the sporting, fashion and technology industries as they offer insights on the opportunities that wearable technology presents.Participants include: Steven Kolb, CEO, Council of Fashion Designers of America; Greg McKelvey, chief strategy and marketing officer, Fossil Group; Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel; Colin Baden, CEO of Oakley; Brian Nohe, president of SMS Audio; and moderator Jon Fortt, CNBC on-air editor.
The march of Moore's Law is bringing computing intelligence to almost every part of life and giving rise to a new age of robotics. Intel and industry players will discuss the opportunities, challenges and implications of the intelligence everywhere trend. Participants are: iRobot CTO Paolo Pirjanian; Daniel Gurdan, CEO of Ascending Technologies; Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel; Doug Davis, VP of Intel’s IoT group; and moderator Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics.
The people who buy consumer electronics come from all walks of life, so it only makes sense that the people creating consumer electronics should too. Intel has long been committed to diversity, and believes the company and the technology industry need to play a stronger role. A panel on the stand will explore the complexity and rewards of building a truly diverse workforce. Participants will be: Brian Krzanich CEO of Intel; Robin Hunicke CEO of Funomena; Laura Weidman Powers CEO of Code 2040; and Soledad O'Brien CEO of Starfish Media Group. The panel will be moderated by Roz Hudnell, chief diversity officer at Intel.
Imagine computers without cords and technology that acts as a true extension of our natural, creative selves. Intel and guests will discuss innovations that make interacting with devices a truly personal experience. Planned participants are: Kirk Skaugen, general manager of Intel’s client computing group; Brian King, global officer of Marriott Signature Brands & Global Sales; Don Surrendra, product developer at Emirates Airlines; and moderator Mario Armstrong, digital lifestyle expert from NBC Today Show.
