The COSM Conference is a premier national summit on the converging future of technology. Held in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, COSM highlights the interplay between global innovations and the pullulating Seattle scene of some of the world’s leading tech companies confronting the fastest moving opportunities. Focusing on the “systems of the world” competing to shape our economy and society, the mission of the conference is to stimulate debate and deliberation on the cosmic unities animating an array of apparently divergent technology areas. From artificial intelligence and blockchain to 5G and crypto-currency, from autonomous vehicles and cloud computing to the biotech revolution and to internet commerce, it is all converging in Seattle and at COSM.
Designed by famed technology futurist, George Gilder, COSM will feature many of the great minds of our day. Our nationally recognized speakers include Peter Thiel, Steve Forbes, Ken Fisher, Ray Kurzweil, Tim Draper, Carver Mead, and other luminaries. The conference is targeted toward anyone seeking to peer into the future of technology, including corporate senior executives (CEOs, CTOs, and CIOs), investors, researchers, and technologists.
Participants at COSM will explore how technology intersects with government regulation, international competitiveness, investing, freedom, and the triumph of the human spirit through keynote speeches and Q&A, panel discussions, and ample informal interactions with national technology leaders, industry peers, and colleagues.
