Emerging technologies are changing the way we live, work, and interact with one another every day. That certainly gives us all a lot to think about. Exploring the relationship between humanity and technology is a bold endeavor, and none of us can do it alone.
Here at IBM, we know that innovation stems not from individuals working in isolation, but from an energetic dialogue between diverse disciplines. We know inspiration lives at the intersection of intelligence and emotion, art and science, people and products, design and business. Our goal is to celebrate and elevate the progressive partnership of mankind and machine, together.
That’s why we’re creating Think 2018, the first-of-its-kind gathering of the world’s leading visionaries, business leaders, innovators, and thinkers like you. Think is not a convention. Think is an ever-evolving, inclusive, accessible, horizontal conversation about human ingenuity, its advocates, and the tools they employ to break paradigms and create new ones.
Think is for the defiant, the curious, the provocative, the uncompromising, the resistant, the persistent. For those who seek progress and the advancement of us all. For those who are obsessed with understanding new technologies like AI, cloud, data, security, infrastructure and more. For those who want to explore what’s possible. Think is for those who seek inspiration and education, reinvention and innovation, to connect and succeed in unexpected, transformative ways to improve society and humanity, one person at a time.
Think is our time and our place to face our biggest problems and achieve our highest aspirations together.
