Maurice Conti, faculty of Singularity University and Director of Strategic Innovation of Autodesk will open up MLOVE with a keynote on Wednesday night about infinite computing (Cloud + Mobile), post industrial manufacturing (3D printing, etc.) and the rise of information (big data, Internet of Things).
Talks, workshops & open innovation
Other presenting companies include: Rambus, AT&T, Samsung, Edelman, Microsoft, Grammy’s, IDG and Scanadu, possibly the leading company right now to develop a Tricorder and mobile health device.
Satellite Maker Workshop
MLOVE events are all about practical innovation and getting hands on with open ideation workshops (“Future Cubes”).
There will be one exclusive Future Cube with Amtel and organized by NanoSatisfy, the maker of the ArduSat satellite. The best idea will win experiment time of the first ArduSat launching this year. Other workshops include: connected toys, mobility, Internet of Things and entertainment.
Bentley Concept car at MLOVE USA!
QNX will bring their CES show car 2013 to Monterey – a one of a kind Bentley stuffed full of new concepts for in-car entertainment and navigation. See Justin Moon of QNX Software Systems, plus Mercedes-Benz and PCH talk and participate in the ideation workshop on mobility.
MLOVE makes a difference:
The event is geared for a small group of innovators that see mobile not only in the current state of the app economy but rather as a means to go beyond the app and mobile services today. MLOVE recently released a book called “Lifestyle of Mobility” (www.lifestyleofmobility.com) that shows a wider perception of mobile as a key to unlock opportunities in the Internet of things and our connected lives.
MLOVE encourages cross-pollination of different industries and company sizes from startups to leading brands. It’s interactive networking and open innovation formats foster an open discussion about the future of mobile. The MLOVE ConFestival is played out as a daytime conference about mobile and a festival part that inspires and connects the participants on a new level.
An important part is the location: MLOVE USA takes place at Asilomar, a historic conference compound right on the Pacific beach of Monterey, California. Speakers usually stay throughout the event, engage in workshops and are not closed off in a VIP room.
