Andy Rubin, Crispr, and Amazon Star at Wired Business Conference 2017

WIRED

Running a business today means contending with technologies that sound like plot devices from a comic book. Gene editing, artificial intelligence, voice-powered digital assistants--these are the unlikely realities facing leaders today, and we're going to take them on at WIRED Business Conference 2017 with the help of a few folks largely responsible for unleashing these forces in the first place. Andy Rubin, smartphone inventor and creator of the Android mobile operating system, who is working to bring AI to everyone. David Limp, senior vice president of devices at Amazon, oversaw the development of the Amazon Echo and its artificially intelligent digital assistant, Alexa. Jennifer Doudna, the UC Berkeley biochemist who developed the groundbreaking gene-editing tool CRISPR in 2012, will come clean about her fears and hopes for the powers of genetic modification.


Your Move, Alphabet Board

The Atlantic - Technology

Can powerful men in tech who commit sexual misconduct be called to account, or simply paid to leave? A blistering, deeply reported, year-in-the-making New York Times story makes the case that Google, and its parent company, Alphabet, have a track record of quietly handling credible sexual-misconduct allegations, while paying out and even celebrating the men responsible. When Andy Rubin, who created Android, the mobile operating system that assured Google's centrality in a mobile-first world, left the company, he was given $90 million, paid out over four years. And yet, the Times reports, he was asked to resign after a Google investigation determined that a woman had made a credible claim that Rubin had coerced her into oral sex. Then, there is the board member and former CEO Eric Schmidt who "once retained a mistress to work as a company consultant, according to four people with knowledge of the relationship."

AI is already a huge part of the technology landscape and leading to many opportunities in mobile. Samsung is putting it to use in its Bixby voice assistant and upcoming smart speaker, Google has used it to help turn a person's scribbles into clip art, while Huawei's Richard Yu sees it as an avenue through which the company can overtake Apple, These are somewhat crude examples of the real implications of AI technology, but it's already clear that it's going to play a big role in the future of tech at large.
