2019 KPMG Executive Symposium on AI and Emerging Technologies

Fairmont Austin | 101 Red River Street | Austin, TX

The use of artificial intelligence is accelerating and disruptive technologies are emerging at an ever-increasing pace, enabling new businesses and disrupting old ones. KPMG—positioned at the convergence of this change—curated an impressive roster of technology luminaries, business leaders, visionaries, economists, and analysts to discuss how the accelerating pace of change can enable enterprise transformation and help us reimagine work.

The range of topics covered the spectrum from automation and artificial intelligence, to Blockchain, 5G, and beyond.

At this event, our clients had an opportunity to be a part of the discussion and engage with our speakers, attend leisure activities and exclusive networking events, while enjoying the dramatic Austin cityscape and unique culture that only Texas can deliver.
