pii2013: Building Trust in the Data Driven Economy—Hope to see you there!
As entrepreneurs at a growing startup there are very few things that are exciting enough to divert even a tiny bit of our attention from giving our customers the world’s best streaming analytics technology. And while my co-founder Mary and I have been known to disagree on what those things might be, we are always in agreement that the Privacy Identity Innovation Conferences (pii) are the best conferences for bringing together leading voices from technology, science, and government for the critical discussion(s) of what Privacy and Identity mean in the age of the NSA, Facebook, and Internet of things. pii2013 is being held in Seattle this year to (as their website states):
“Explore emerging technologies and business models, and highlight strategies and best practices for building trust with users. From news reports of increasing government surveillance to stories about startups using customer data in ‘surprising’ ways, there’s no shortage of examples illustrating why now is an important time to talk about innovation and trust. It’s a critical conversation about the future of privacy, identity and reputation that you won’t want to miss.”
Mary and I will both be there as panelists and attendees. I am a panelist on “Emerging Technologies and the Fine Line Between Cool and Creepy.” (PatternBuilders is cool, competitors are creepy—just kidding!) Mary will be a panelist on “pii Post-PRISM: Trust & the Data-Driven Economy” and moderating a panel on “The Big Deal about Big Data: Predictive Analytics.” We are both looking forward to pii2013—it looks to be another great conference that gives Personal Identity Information the attention it deserves!
pii2013 will be held September 16 through the 18th. For those of you who would like more information on the conference go here. And for those of you who want to register for the conference, go here. Look forward to seeing you there!
