Past Event

Google's Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen

Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google; Co-author, The New Digital Age

Jared Cohen, Director of Google Ideas; Co-author, The New Digital Age

In conversation with Greg Dalton, Founder, Climate One

In the next decade, most people on Earth should be able to access most of the world’s information through a mobile device. We also will see widespread adoption of driverless cars, thought-controlled robotic motion and augmented reality. Identity may possibly be the most valuable commodity for citizens and it will exist primarily online.

In 2008 Eric Schmidt introduced the Google 2030 Energy Plan at Climate One. While this 2013 conversation will focus primarily on digital issues it will touch on the intersection of energy and technology. Don't miss a fascinating glimpse into our future with a person helping define it, Google's Eric Schmidt.
