Acceleration Economy practitioner-analyst and Paragon Films CIO Kenny Mullican is on location at IBM Think 2023 in Orlando this week. In this preview, Kenny runs through who and what he’s looking forward to seeing at the two-day event.
00:41 — Kenny highlights the keynote with IBM Chairman and CEO Arvind Krishna. The keynote covers hybrid cloud, infrastructure, sustainability, what’s next in computing, AI, automation, and data security. There are a lot of topics, but much of it dovetails with what is covered at Acceleration Economy, and Kenny thinks it’ll be valuable to see the direction in which IBM is headed.
01:43 — Some of the other “featured thinkers” (a.k.a. speakers) include Rachel Wilson, the head of data security for Morgan Stanley, who will discuss navigating today’s cybersecurity landscape, and Will.I.Am, Beats Electronics co-founder and Black Eyed Peas band member. He’s the founder and CEO of FYI, which stands for Focus Your Ideas, a platform designed to be the ultimate technology tool for creatives. He’ll be speaking on innovation at the intersection of creativity and technology, which will include topics like AI, automation, and data.
02:27 — There will also be keynote sessions on turning challenges into opportunities with hybrid cloud and AI for business, and unlocking growth with intelligent automation.
02:47 — Kenny is a big fan of roundtable sessions, since they offer perspectives from different people, and are more conversational than keynotes. He’s looking forward to roundtable discussions on topics such as AI-powered automation, generative AI in business, data security, sustainability, and quantum computing.
