Event description

Description

All in attendance at LADCO’s Fall Economic Forum TM agreed that the presenter – Patrick Schwerdtfeger – sparked and heightened interest in the profound changes coming in commerce and in our lives by application of Artificial Intelligence. So, we wish with LADCO’s 63rd meeting of The Economic Forum TM to continue this exploration by learning more in two areas touched on last fall. The Forum, entitled “Rise of the Machines: A.V. Technology and Blockchain-Cryptocurrency” will drill down on these two technologies as they spread across the landscape.

What is blockchain as it relates to supply chain management, in general, and how has it helped launch the rise of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin in particular? What is to come as we move to a paperless payment system?

Similarly, what is involved in the several layers of Automatic Vehicles, how are they being tested and what is the trajectory leading to wide use and commercialization?

Two speakers will add enormously to our understanding in both of these areas, Julie Hanson is with TCM Bank. She writes the bank’s quarterly newsletter and speaks to financial institution audiences on current trends including emerging technologies, such as Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies. Julie will also cover payment strategies, overall industrial changes in credit, debit, and digital landscape.

Eric Nutt, Chief Technology Officer at Mandli Communications, a partner with the University of Wisconsin Automated Vehicle Proving Ground, will speak on the tremendous changes and advancements of automated vehicle transportation and how the UW A.V. Proving Ground is adding to an overwhelming body of knowledge and experience as Automated Vehicles move into the mainstream.

Please make plans to join us for the 63st Economic Forum on Tuesday, April 24th in the Radisson Hotel Ballroom. Breakfast begins at 7:00 AM with the program beginning at 7:15 AM and concluding by 9:00 AM. Cost is $45.00 per person.

No registrations will be accepted after April 17th. Thank you!
