COSM is an exclusive national summit on the converging technologies remaking the world as we know it. The mission of the conference is to stimulate debate and deliberation amongst industry leaders on the unities animating these apparently divergent technology areas. Held at the Bellevue Hyatt, the summit illuminates the synergy between Seattle and the world and provides a scene of civilized conversation and exchange.
Designed by famed technology futurist, George Gilder, COSM will feature an astounding array of speakers — from Amazon and Microsoft, Intel and Madrona Ventures, with keynotes and interviews with Andy Kessler, Ray Kurzweil, Stephen Wolfram, and Bob Metcalfe. Kyle Bass will expound on China, and, of course, Kyoto Prize winner Carver Mead will crown our proceedings. With special guest Stephen Balaban, founder of the meteoric new distributed AI unicorn, Lambda Labs, we promise you a COSMic vision of the luminous future of new technology.Note: In keeping with our theme, speaker personas were created using generative ai and image editing tools.
Artificial Intelligence takes its place in the unfolding fabric of human creativity and information science transforming wealth creation, capitalism, media, investment, jobs and the human future. But it does not stand alone. How do other converging technologies — biotech, autonomous vehicles, WiFi6, blockchain, the metaverse, cryptocurrency, 6G, cloud computing, and even quantum computing — fit into the ever expanding kaleidoscopes of surprise in the human climb from chaos to the stars.
Because COSM offers you what no other conference can. COSM brings you directly in touch with the top thinkers powering tomorrow’s most consequential technology.
In this new era of innovation, everyone will be affected, but only a relative few will be prepared to understand — and make the best and most informed decisions about — the biggest technology upheavals and upsides we’ve experienced in a generation.
The conference is targeted toward anyone seeking to engage with a diversity of thinkers and ideas about the future of technology, including corporate senior executives (CEOs, CTOs, and CIOs), investors, researchers, and technologists.
