The local tech community will come together again next week for the annual GeekWire Summit to hear from leaders of known brands including Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks and Zillow, as well as lesser known experts who are driving change through technology.
The conference agenda, which runs Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., covers a wide range of technologies including artificial intelligence, driverless cars, cargo drones, robotics, mobile payments, innovations in cancer therapies, and the application of universal design.
Perhaps a reflection of the broader dialog taking place in the U.S., this year’s event includes stories of immigrant entrepreneurs, a Fireside Chat with Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, and a panel focused on diversity and inclusion.
A crowd favorite includes the Inventions We Love, where local entrepreneurs share their latest gadgets, creations and devices. In past years this has included revolutionary bike helmet technology, home brewing solutions and internet-enabled remote pet feeders.
