Connected Intelligence: Man, Machine, and Platforms

We are pleased to announce that our Mobile Future Forward Book for 2017 will be published and become available exclusively to Mobile Future Forward participants on Sept 7th. As is the tradition, the book has some brilliant essays from our speakers – the thought leaders and mobile industry senior executives, on trends, opportunities, innovations, and user experiences. More importantly, these thought-pieces highlight how some of the leading companies are gearing themselves to execute in the Connected Intelligence Era. The book provides a perfect platform for our day long brainstorm about what the next 5 years in mobile will look like. We have extraordinary speakers and am really looking forward to the discussions throughout the day.

By bringing together a really diverse group of individual leaders – both speakers and audience, we are able to create an environment for constructive dialogue that will hopefully help in formulating your own strategies and product plans.

Thanks to all the authors and their respective organizations for making this year’s book possible.
