BlackBerry will join the 20th annual Milken Institute Global Conference, which takes place from April 30th till May 3rd, 2017. The conference will be hosted in the Los Angeles Beverly Hilton Hotel, and in the Valet Area BlackBerry will be demoing a BlackBerry software powered Jaguar XJ.
First debuted at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the Jaguar XJ is the next stage in the software-defined car. Powered by BlackBerry software, the Jaguar’s digital cockpit features a consolidated Electronic Control Unit (ECU), which combines the infotainment system and digital instrument cluster onto a single System-on-a-Chip (SoC) – all while using BlackBerry’s hypervisor software to isolate and keep each system crash-proof and safe. The Jaguar also uses our Acoustics Management Platform to enhance communication between driver and passengers and reduce engine sound.
Leading global experts, including five BlackBerry executives, will come together to tackle the economic, technological, and business challenges related to this year’s topic of “Building Meaningful Lives.”
On Tuesday, May 2nd from 8 AM PT, Executive Chairman and CEO John Chen will offer his insights on public policy on the panel, “U.S. Overview: Will the Economic Tailwind continue?”
The following day at 11:15 AM PT, BlackBerry Chief Evangelist Mark Wilson will share his expert thoughts on cybersecurity in healthcare on the panel “Hacks on Healthcare: How to Make a Vulnerable Industry Cyber-Secure“.
BlackBerry’s Chief Operating Officer Marty Beard will be participating in a private dinner panel on the topic, “Will Technology Outpace Human Intelligence?” BlackBerry President, Global Sales Carl Wiese and Senior Director of Business Operations, Neelam Sandhu will also be in attendance.
