Keynote: Virtualization Reimagined - Arjan van de Ven, Intel Fellow, Linux and Data Centric Software Architecture & Director, Pathfinding and Advanced Technology, Intel Corporation
Over the past decade, virtualization has transformed cloud computing and the way we do business. As companies continue their cloud transformations, they are looking more closely at security and performance trade-offs when considering which services can be migrated to the cloud.

In this talk, Arjan van de Ven, Intel Fellow Linux and Data-Centric Software Architecture, Director, Pathfinding and Advanced Technology will showcase some of the ways Intel has expanded its scope from kernel into cloud technologies and present how we are leading this innovation through secure containers, end-to-end software stacks and performance.

Keynote: Trusted AI: Bringing Trust Back into AI through Open Source - Todd Moore, Vice President, Open Technology, Cognitive Applications, IBM*
As businesses move beyond experimentation to full-blown AI projects across the enterprise, they are recognizing that there’s more to successful implementations than simply having the right datasets, AI models and scalability. Increasingly, dimensions of trust, including fairness, robustness and explainability, are important metrics that help evaluate AI model behavior. Here, IBM is going to discuss how we are leveraging the power of Open Source to bring trust back in AI.

Keynote: Understanding the Cultural Codes that Drive Behavior - Michele Gelfand, Distinguished Professor, University of Maryland and Author of “Rule Makers, Rule Breakers: How Tight and Loose Cultures Wire the World”
Over the past century, we have explored the solar system, split the atom, and wired the Earth,
but somehow, despite all of our technical prowess, we have struggled to understand something far more important: our own cultural differences. Using a variety of methodologies, my research has uncovered is that many cultural differences reflect a simple, but often invisible distinction: The strength of social norms. Tight cultures have strong social norms and little tolerance for deviance, while loose cultures have weak social norms and are highly permissive. The tightness or looseness of social norms turns out to be a Rosetta Stone for human groups. It illuminates similar patterns of difference across nations, states, organizations, and social class, and the template also explains differences among traditional societies. It’s also a global fault line: conflicts we encounter can spring from the structural stress of tight-loose tension, and our data show that they have important implications for success in international mergers & acquisitions and expatriate adjustment, and can also help to explain some of today’s most puzzling political trends and events. An understanding of this template can help us develop more empathy and to bridge out cultural divides.
