THE MIDWEST INNOVATION RENAISSANCE
We believe that a great renaissance is happening in the Midwest. Some may entitle it "Industry 4.0", while others may term it "digital innovation". The terms may change, but the outcome is still the same - the midwest is rising!
Featured Keynote Mark Kvamme, Co-Founder + Partner at Drive Capital, will kickstart the day with his unique insights and perspectives on our evolution into the age of the "Thinking Machine" - the 4th wave of computing, after the mainframe, PC, and internet waves have made their impact.
This groundbreaking 4th wave will have more impact on our companies, our careers, and our society than any other wave before. Mark will use his personal history growing up in Silicon Valley, experiencing the first three waves first-hand, to explore how the 4th wave of the "Thinking Machine" is here today and how you should prepare to "catch” this new wave of computing.

So get ready for a morning that celebrates and inspires innovation... and shows off the amazing things happening here in Ohio.
Advances in AI and Machine Learning are leaping forward at an exponential rate, impacting every sector of technology and business in ways we have only just begun to understand.
So what is Machine Learning...
and what kinds of problems can it solve?
Google thinks about Machine Learning a little differently:
it's about logic, rather than just data.
Companies in many industries leverage this "Logic" framework when devising new Machine Learning applications, built to expand the capabilities of your business.
While out in the field, we see abstraction levels of Machine Learning are increasing, and data comprehensiveness is becoming more important than data size. We also see that systems can often build on top of preexisting models.
Break into the afternoon with Featured Keynote Valliappa (Lak) Lakshmanan, Tech Lead at Google's Big Data and ML Professional Services, taking us on a deep dive into how your IT infrastructure has to change to enable you to take full advantage of Machine Learning and achieve tremendous business impact and personalization.

THE NEW SUSTAINABLE
Meeting the challenge of delivering people to the technology talent marketplace is something Central State University is confronting head on. As a key resource in Central Ohio for traditional and non-traditional students, and one of two Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Ohio, CSU sees first-hand how small obstacles in the journey of talent result in quality candidates dropping out of the pool.
Through a series of bold innovations, Dr. Tonjia Coverdale and Oracle are introducing technologies that can deliver vital educational resources to students in our region, keeping them on track to enter our technology talent pool. These innovations can scale and form a solid and on-going talent development and delivery infrastructure, fueled and supported by the collaboration between an education pioneer and a technology powerhouse.
Featured Keynote Dr. Tonjia Coverdale, Ph. D., VP for Information Technology & CIO at Central State University, will share insights on this innovative program and collaboration.

CONSIDERING HOW TO
GET MORE OUT OF MORE
From executive leaders to line managers, we all say: "we only want top talent". But the reality is every team is going to be comprised of a mix of capabilities, levels of motivation, ways of thinking, ability to produce. So how do we as leaders motivate, empower and support everyone on the team to be the best they can be? What can we do to help the healthy middle become 5-10% more effective each year?
There exists a dearth of skilled, qualified people in all markets, all regions, and all types of jobs in Central Ohio and beyond. Organizations lack the ability to effectively develop and implement innovative products and services because we are not collectively developing the people needed to satisfy the ever-increasing demands of our region.
Featured Keynote Sandy Doyle-Ahern, President of EMH&T, will bring the day full circle with her actionable insights, sharing practical, experienced-based ideas to raise up each person on our teams to perform at their highest potential.
