Announcing Mobile Future Forward 2018: Exponential Ecosystems

Announcing Mobile Future Forward 2018: Exponential Ecosystems

Dear friends,

2017 was a remarkable year for the industry. For the first time, more than 100 companies generated more than $1 Billion in revenue on the 4th Wave. We are living through the golden era of technology that Nikola Tesla envisioned almost 100 years ago – Connected Intelligence. Different pieces of the puzzle in 5G, AI, Autonomous, IoT, Digital Business Models, Robotics, Blockchain, VR/AR, Commerce, Industry Verticals, Cybersecurity, Quantum Computing, New Interfaces, On-demand Services, and more, are coming together to form Exponential Ecosystems.

Each ecosystem is on an exponential trajectory, but the real disruption is happening at the edges wherein these ecosystems collide and collaborate to give birth to something new and unexpected. For example, 5G and AI is going to be transformative to how services are delivered, and applications are experienced; or how Blockchain and IoT solve the cybersecurity problems that seem to compound every minute; or how Robotics shapes the retail and healthcare industries.

At Mobile Future Forward, we will explore these Connected Intelligence interactions and intersections of eE to help us understand the opportunities and challenges in front of us. The theme for this year’s summit is Connected Intelligence: Exponential Ecosystems. We will bring together pioneers and disruptors who are close to the action on the ground and will bring in unique perspectives from the front lines.

I am thrilled to announce that Mobile Future Forward 2018 (now in its 9th year) will be held on Oct 4th in Seattle.

Registration is open now.

Some of the confirmed industry leaders are:

  • Alex Rogers, President, Qualcomm Technology Licensing
