At EmTech Digital, Meet Insiders from Magic Leap, Google’s Project Loon

Our June event in San Francisco offers access to the people behind our 10 Breakthrough Technologies, including insiders from Magic Leap and Google’s Project Loon.

  • February 26, 2015

This June, MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Digital (formerly Digital Summit) brings a global examination of the most significant technologies and trends of the digital era to San Francisco. Our live events include you in our conversations with the individuals and organizations at the heart of the most significant developments of the year.

MIT Technology Review has just released the 10 Breakthrough Technologies list for 2015. Today, I wanted to highlight some of the EmTech Digital speakers whose work has been honored on that popular annual list.

We’ll hear from three key executives at the helm of Magic Leap. This visionary team will share unprecedented insights into their work on a device that can make virtual objects appear in real life:

  • Rony Abovitz, founder, president and CEO
  • Graeme Devine, chief creative officer, SVP games, apps, & CR experiences
  • Neal Stephenson, chief futurist

In addition we’ll hear about Google’s Project Loon, an effort to deliver wireless Internet from the sky via balloons. The hope is that educational and economic opportunities will be expanded for the 4.3 billion people around the world who  remain offline. The head of Project Loon, Mike Cassidy, will update us on the project’s progress.

You can visit the event website for a full update on the speakers that have already been announced.

Please make plans to join us at EmTech Digital from June 1-2, 2015, in San Francisco. Watch the event website for more program updates, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for up-to-the-minute news.

Meet the Experts in AI, Robotics and the Economy at EmTech Next.
