Harker CareerConnect took eight students to Constellation Research’s Connected Enterprise summit in late October at the Half Moon Bay Ritz-Carlton. It was an engaging conference for students interested in learning more about artificial intelligence and how it will affect the world of business by creating new business models and disruptive technology.
The event featured mind-expanding keynotes, market leaders and fast-follower panel discussions, one-on-one interviews with tech visionaries, and interactive workshops in an intimate executive setting.
This year’s conference explored how the world of artificial intelligence will transform digital business. “The conference was an amazing experience and I got to make new friends and network,” said Ayesha Baweja, grade 10. “The speakers and panelists all had unique and interesting opinions. It gave me a good insight into the current state of technology and I learned many new terms.”
Krishay Mukhija, grade 9, also attended. “The conference was a great opportunity to learn about new technology which are disrupting the market,” he said. “I was able to learn from industry professionals and connect with many individuals.”
