Connect to Thrive Global Summit - March 24, 2017

Connecting the World Globally through Science and Technology

The Connect to Thrive Global Summit is a Trading Post on the frontier of the future - a place where academic leaders, community leaders, city managers and national leaders can explore what others are doing around the world, and what science and technologies are useful for improving lives.

Now the future frontier is the potential of a globally connected world, enabled by science and technology to provide opportunity for many more people to fulfill their potential. Technologies, innovations are exploding around the world in hackathons, startups and in the hearts of small and large enterprises. We bring them together on March 24 so that in one place we can discover what is working and who is doing it.

You will hear from keynote speakers like Adam Cheyer, who led the development of Siri, John Ryan - who did the financial modeling for One LapTop per child, and Soma Stout, MD MS, Executive External Lead, Health Improvement IHI, Harvard Medical School. We will feature workshops and panels where success stories can be reviewed, discussed and explored in depth – where challenges and obstacles can be highlighted so that we can coordinate together how to meet them more successfully.

Join us at the Global Summit where people and communities are networking to learn, share and innovate together to improve lives in the global digital economy.

Topic: Happathon - Bringing Purpose to Personalization   (Optional Early Riser Session)
Abstract: What are you worth?  What is your value?  These are questions we typically don't ask ourselves regarding the personal data representing our lives.  But this information that is accessible by a myriad of actors we can't see deeply reflects our actions, preferences, and values.  Aggregated within any number of competing algorithms, portraits of our identity are projected to others we may not feel represent our genuine selves.  Now is the time to claim our digital personhood and embrace the technical and ideological tools that will help bring purpose to personalization by allowing individuals to state their subjective truth in data.

Topic: The People Centered Internet - is an Internet for the People By the People  
Abstract: The Internet can be both useful and harmful – it is "UP TO US" to make the Internet more useful for everyone. We must make sure the Internet is actually useful to people (in ways that they want, not what we imagine) – we have to measure value it brings to their lives. We need to think about how the Internet can be locally useful – local language – local information. People must be able to take advantage of access – The biggest question we face: How to bring real benefits to everyone.

Topic: "The ‘Single Window’ and ‘Block Chain’ Trade Finance Disruptions in Global Trade"  
Abstract: Just as Napster many years ago dramatically changed of how we buy and listen to music, the same scenario is now occurring in the global trade logistic industry. Currently, over 40 countries have a Single Window trade logistic service as the world moves closer to global standards for trade facilitation that will improve security and streamline the documentation process of moving products across borders in all countries. As major financial institutions grapple with the powerful and disruptive emergence of Block Chain trade finance and its relationship with global supply chains, a new realm of companies is emerging that will embrace both of these disruptive technologies in the global trade industry that will lead to new methodologies of how we conduct global trade.

Topic: A Vision for Values – Moving from Privacy to Control in the Personal Data Landscape 
Abstract: The existing ecosystem makes people’s data accessible by anyone without their full consent or ability to benefit from the insights regarding their personal information.  New legislation in Europe called the GDPR is encouraging companies to better honor the safety and accessibility of people’s data.  This is also inspiring forward thinking organizations to move beyond compliance regarding this legislation to define how they can create more trusted relationships with customers and users.  Peer to peer data exchanges will empower individuals to define how they want their information shared in this new environment, better reflecting their subjective values and evolving innovation in the age of algorithms.         Track Chair: Karen McCabe, Senior Director, Technical Standards, IEEE

Keynote Address: AI for Augmented Intelligence      
Abstract: In the last few years, AI (Artificial Intelligence) has made surprising advances, to the point that experts have said they have now witnessed accomplishments that they didn't expect in their lifetime. This has raised fears about how far AI can go and how it is being applied. Adam, the co-creator of Siri, argues that AI should primarily be applied as a tool to augment our individual and collective intelligence to attack global problems that we might not be able to solve otherwise. His latest project Viv is pursuing this goal by making AI the next evolution of the Internet.
