With accelerating and profound technological change, from programmatic media to artificial intelligence, predictive modelling to virtual worlds, robots and telepresence to mobile and gamification, the many possibilities and platforms that technology offers are an exercise in creativity.

“Our line-up includes the very best practitioners in this field who will share their knowledge, offer insights and make predictions on the future.”
