Keynote Topics

The last five years have seen breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence(AI) at an unprecedented rate, with a host of new systems and applications emerging that go far beyond what was possible only a decade ago.

Voice commands can now be used to perform actions and retrieve information using a conversational tone across a multiple of devices. Self-driving cars are a reality for commuters on the highway.

With continuous and accelerating improvements in AI, this talk will address new ways of thinking about AI and ways to prepare your business for the continuing AI revolution.

In this presentation Adam talks about the birth of Siri, from idea, to inception, to Apple’s acquisition and implementation of it into the iPhone in 2010. Siri’s story is a fascinating one that not many people know about.

For example, did you know that Adam first built a Siri-like system in 1993 before the world wide web was even launched? And that it operated on a tablet-like PC?

But it wasn’t until Apple’s release of the iPhone 18 years later in 2007 that Adam knew it was the right time to take Siri from a hobby to the world.

Lessons From The Founder of Siri, Inc.

Adam discusses the lessons he learned while building each of his startups and how he took them from idea to execution.

He talks through vital questions in building a startup, such as: how to know when it’s the right time to take an idea from hobby to startup; how to choose the right environment to work; how to pick the right goals that will lead to success; and, how to visualize what success means to you.

Learn how to build a successful startup from the founder of Siri.
