Michael Rogers is a best-selling author, technology pioneer, and columnist for NBC.com, who most recently completed two years as futurist-in-residence for The New York Times.

For more than 20 years, Michael has provided a powerful catalyst across multiple industries for organizations to create a vision of the future and the will to innovate. 

As a “practical” futurist, Michael brings real business experience and delivers a dynamic and entertaining vision of change, blending technology, economics, demographics, culture and human nature.

In his opening keynote, he zeros in on healthcare, where big data, analytics, and machine learning and other technologies have begun to help clinicians improve care. But all this technology comes with some caveats: How do we keep the human element in healthcare?  What are the privacy implications of personal genomic data? How do we fund the latest technologies while making sure that basic healthcare is affordable? With the proliferation of data, how do we insure privacy and security?

Among all these questions, healthcare organizations much chart a course and design their own futures. Michael will provide insights into how to do just that.
