Come to a free forum to discover how smartphones, social media, driverless cars and the explosion of other internet-connected devices are making life more convenient than ever — but also exposing us to hacking and other cyber crimes.
Hear from and interact with:
David Brin | a nationally known and award-winning sci-fi author who has great insights when it comes to predicting future technologies.
Henrik Christensen | director of UC San Diego's Contextual Robotics Institute. His expertise on the "Internet of Things" could help people live independently into their elder years.
Stephen Cobb | senior researcher in the San Diego office of ESET; the global cyber security firm. Cobb knows more about hackers than most hackers. He'll explain why Amazon Echo should both thrill and scare you.
Ashton Mozano | a University of San Diego cybersecuirty professor who is using technology from the gaming industry to teach the next generation of cyberworkers.
Moderated by San Diego Union-Tribune science and cyber writer Gary Robbins and USD's Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering dean Chell Roberts.
