This morning I’m pleased to share with you a small handful of the technology industry luminaries who will participate in Fortune Brainstorm Tech, our annual get-together in Aspen, Colo.
Robotics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are on everyone’s mind this year. MIT’s Cynthia Breazeal and Nest’s Yoky Matsuoka will have a wide-ranging conversation on the future of robotics. Kyle Vogt, CEO of GM-owned Cruise Automation, will discuss the prospect for robotic cars.
This also is the year that cybersecurity threats went from corporate dilemma to political crises. Three experts who’ll attack the problem on our stage will be Keith Alexander, former director of the U.S. National Security Agency; Oren Falkowitz of Area 1 Security; and HackerOne CEO Marten Mickos.
One of the hallmarks of Brainstorm Tech is our attention to finance. We like to be able to share with our attendees where the smart money is looking, and we bring together investors who invest at different stages of a company’s life. A few who’ll join us in Aspen include Kirsten Green of Forerunner Ventures, General Atlantic’s Anton Levy, and David Trujillo of TPG.
Big-company CEOs are a hallmark of our conference. Brian Cornell of Target (TGT) will join us. So will Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon’s (AMZN) retail business. Michael Dell, who bought back his company recently, will appear with the man who helped him do it, Egon Durban of private-equity investor Silver Lake.
This is meant to be a mere taste of who’ll be in Aspen. A handful of others include GE Transportation chief Jamie Miller, Linda Kozlowski of Etsy (ETSY), and Slack’s April Underwood.
