#InfosysConfluence

Overview

Infosys Confluence, our flagship thought leadership summit, will be hosted at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco from May 23 to 25, 2017. It will bring together 2,000+ leaders, technology evangelists and visionary teachers to explore the future of the digital revolution and its impact on business. Creating a reverberating world of learning and sharing around purposeful automation and innovation, the event will facilitate the sharing of best practices through interactive sessions through a combination of engaging keynotes, thought-provoking panel discussions and peer-networking opportunities.

Perhaps the biggest disruption of our times is the accelerating force of technology and digitization. Everything is beginning to sense the world around and respond to it in real time. Cars can tell anxious parents if their teens are driving safely, machinery on the shop floor can alert technicians when it might break down and how to prevent that from happening, and even that innocuous toothbrush on your bathroom shelf can now tattle to dental insurers should you forget to brush before bed. Clearly, technology is making everything around us smarter.

This deep intermingling of bits and atoms is opening up a whole new world of possibilities, and our path forward is very clear – we need to harness the dual forces of automation and innovation.

Automation to become more productive, and with the resulting capacity focus our attention upwards towards innovation. The foundation for all of this can only be our infrastructure for life-long learning.

Although we are in the early stages of understanding how intelligent systems and people can work together more seamlessly, there is great hope that when we do achieve such a deep symbiosis, the amplification of our humanity will be immense. When technology will bring to life all that we imagine, the only task before us – perhaps our greatest responsibility even – will be to unlimit ourselves, our imaginations and be all that we can be.

venue

Moscone West, 800 Howard Street, San Francisco

Moscone Center is the largest convention and exhibition complex in San Francisco, California. Moscone West, where Infosys Confluence 2017 will take place, is a freestanding building and is almost as large as one city block. It comprises three levels that are 110 feet above street level with about 300,000 square feet of space. Moscone West is in the heart of South of Market Area and is a short walk from hotels, restaurants and downtown Union Square.

Interesting Fact about Moscone Center: The largest city-owned solar power system in the United States is located at the Moscone Center. Covering 60,000 square feet with 5,400 solar panel systems, equivalent to the size of a football field, it generates 826,000 kWh annually. This is equivalent to power 184 homes in San Francisco for an entire year, removing 7,000 cars from the road, or not driving 88 million miles. Over the lifetime of the project, it will reduce 35,000 tons of CO2.

Dress Code: Business Casuals

Beardyman, AKA Darren Foreman is a British multi-vocalist, musician, TED speaker, and a comedian. He was studying product design at Brighton University in the UK when he started beatboxing. After winning two consecutive UK Beatbox Championships, he turned to live looping (recording and playing back audio samples in real time) as a way to layer his vocal ablutions into dance-floor-rocking hour-long sets. He released his debut album in 2011 and has been rocking stages all over the world ever since.

Frustrated by not being able to sing two notes at the same time, Beardyman built a machine to allow him to create loops and layers from just the sounds he makes with his voice. Given that he can effortlessly conjure the sound of everything from crying babies to buzzing flies, not to mention mimic pretty much any musical instrument imaginable, that's a lot of different sounds. This entertaining yet thought-provoking performance isn’t merely about what's possible with the human voice. It’s about what’s possible when the human voice meets technology. Sit back and let the wall of sound of this dazzling performance wash over you.
