|TTI/Vanguard is the advanced
technology conference series for senior-level executives. We introduce,
discuss, and evaluate emerging
and breakthrough technologies on the two-to-five-year horizon. Through conferences, workshops, and field trips,
experts offer perspectives on future technologies and their
impact on organizations, infrastructures, policies, and society. The
result is a framework for linking strategic technology planning
to business success.
TTI/Vanguard is about discovering technological
possibilities for the 21st century. Five times annually,
government leaders, entrepreneurs, researchers, and academicians
come together to envision the future's future technologically.
In highly interactive sessions, led by a world-class Advisory Board—John Perry Barlow, Maria Bezaitis, Gordon Bell, Peter Cochrane, Eric Haseltine, Mike Hawley, Alan Kay, Len Kleinrock, Doug Lenat, Bob Lucky, Nicholas Negroponte, and David Reed—and today's most influential thought leaders, debate is stimulated, and breakthrough ideas flourish.
