8/19: National Political Conventions Series: Building our Future


As we focus on the upcoming 2020 National Political Conventions, Protocol's Issie Lapowsky and Emily Birnbaum will lead a two-event series on the tech and policy needed to enable a diverse future workforce and a strong economy. This event series is hosted in partnership with ITI.

9/1: Computing at the Edge


Edge computing is an emerging concept that holds great promise for the delivery of next-generation real-time applications, but it is not as well understood as cloud computing or even the internet of things. What is edge computing, and how will it change the way modern business applications are built and deployed?

Also, given the sheer amount of data generated by devices at the edge of the network and the delays associated with traveling back and forth between data centers, more and more artificial intelligence processes will have to be conducted at the edge. AI best practices are still evolving in the cloud, but they are greenfield at the edge: how should businesses adapt? This event is hosted in partnership with Intel.

7/30: Why there's no 'digital' in transformation

"Digital" transformation as a concept is both outdated and redundant, as the world's most successful businesses have long "gone digital."

This event began with an engaging discussion featuring our partner Simon Freakley, CEO of AlixPartners and Mindy Grossman, CEO of WW. Protocol's transformation editor Mike Murphy led the conversation with Joe Preston, CEO of New Balance; Sheila Jordan, Chief Digital Technology Officer of Honeywell; and Doug Sauder, Director of Digital Product Management & Analytics of John Deere.
