What does it take to build a great business? Amy Wilkinson shares six essential skills for injecting an entrepreneurial thought process into your business, jump-starting innovation, and creating a culture that identifies and seizes opportunities that leapfrog the competition. Amy's work is based on her more than 200 high-impact interviews with both the leaders currently changing the world and the entrepreneurs (eBay, SpaceX, LinkedIn, Under Armour, Tesla Motors, Airbnb, PayPal and more) who will be changing it tomorrow.

Imagine putting IBM Watson in the world. Give it eyes and ears, then let it act in the world with hands and feet and a face. In this session, we will demonstrate exactly that scenario using a humanoid robot from Aldebaran. Along the way, we will present IBM's trajectory for embodying Watson in the walls of your workplace or home, and in everyday objects and devices.
