If digital transformation is on your mind, LiveWorx is the place to be – and the names above are the powerhouse keynote speakers of the event. They’re going to be sharing their forward-thinking perspectives on digital transformation, how it’s being executed in enterprise environments, and all about the technology that’s enabling businesses to transform their people, processes, and products.

Thousands of business leaders will be flying into Boston June 10-13 for the four-day conference that promises to be an experience unlike any other.

However, we know that not everyone can make the trip to the Hub this year, so in that spirit, LiveWorx will be livestreaming its keynote speakers, as well as other pivotal presentations throughout the conference. It’s free to register, so sign up now.

Here’s a look at what’s in store on the livestream:

LiveWorx Keynotes

LiveWorx kicks off on Tuesday morning with its first keynote by Jim Heppelmann, President & CEO, PTC. He’s speaking about digital transformation and the need to harness new technology (like IoT, AR, artificial intelligence, and so much more) to drive industrial innovation.

To close out the first full day, Peter Diamandis, Founder and Executive Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, a world leader in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions, will share his perspective on exponential tech. He’s expected to give a powerful talk on how quickly technology is changing the world we live in – and why it’s imperative businesses evolve and disrupt your own industries and business models.

On Wednesday, June 12, Michelle McKenna, Chief Information Officer of the NFL, will share her extensive experience in technology strategy and how to quarterback a digital revolution at an enterprise level.

To close out the conference, Pattie Maes, Professor of Media Arts and Sciences/Director, Fluid Interfaces Group, MIT Media Lab, will share research happening in her group that’s focused on more cohesively integrating the physical and digital worlds. The ultimate goal is to design less disruptive and better integrated systems that ultimately enhance human cognitive function.
