Nicholas Thompson, Editor-in-Chief, Wired
As Wired’s new editor-in-chief, Nicholas Thompson is committed to pushing the magazine to the forefront of technology. And as a veteran public speaker, he’s uniquely situated to offer informed commentary on everything new and vital in this inexhaustible field. How will artificial intelligence and robotics change our devices, the way we work, earn a living, fight wars, solve problems—our very selves? How will privacy, security, and cyber-espionage evolve in the coming years of interconnectivity (and how much should the average person or company care)? How will the world’s dominant tech corporations—Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft—interact with citizens, help write policy, and exert power over governments and citizens? And how can the media continue upholding the truth throughout, especially under an administration that’s declared war on journalists? No matter the subject—design, culture, media, tech, ethics, or our digital future—Nicholas Thompson is more than ready to break the news with big ideas and fearless takes.
