Andre Fuetsch, former CTO of AT&T, interviews Keith Krach, former U.S. Undersecretary of State and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, about U.S./China relations, Chinese technology, and Krach’s “trust principle,” which emphasizes democratic values such as respect for the rule of law, property, press, human rights, and national sovereignty; protection of labor and the environment, and standards for transparency, integrity, and reciprocity, to counter China’s “power principle” which features power, coercion, and intimidation.
COSM is an exclusive national summit on the converging technologies remaking the world as we know it. From artificial intelligence to 5G and WiFi6, from tokenized time to blockchain, from cloud computing to the quantum revolution, from the “spatial web” to the efflorescence of space flight, the future is meeting in Seattle, and at COSM. 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. Learn more and register: https://cosm.tech
