Beginning with the Antikythera Mechanism in 200 BC, humans have been building increasingly complex machines to help them expand their problem-solving capabilities. But the tools and processes that fall broadly into the category of Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality are like nothing we have ever seen before. And the rate and pace at which these two technologies are disrupting business and culture is both exciting and scary.
Join us in Comradity's creative space and experience the latest in Virtual Reality. We might even encounter Spider Man. Chris Bishop will share ideas and tactics that you can take back to your business to take advantage of these new computing paradigms.

Chris Bishop: Currently working as a speaker, writer and consultant, I am focused on sharing insights from my nonlinear, multi-modal career path to help people be successful in the global borderless workplace.
Right after graduating from Bennington College with a degree in German literature, I toured and recorded with a country-rock band called McKendree Spring. Then, moving to New York, I became a sought-after session musician, working with many famous artists including Robert Palmer, Darius Brubeck, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley. Realizing that by working in advertising, musicians could sleep in their own beds at night and get off the road, I broke into the jingle business, first as a bass player and then as a composer and producer.
In 1995, after becoming captivated by the Internet, I taught myself enough about this new technology to get hired as a Web producer at several seminal interactive agencies in New York-including CKS Partners and Eagle River Interactive. Then, in 1998, after being invited to what I fully expected would be an awkward if not embarrassing interview, IBM asked me to join their Corporate Internet Programs team.
I left IBM in June of 2013 after 15 years. While there, I worked in a variety of roles including new media production, as a business strategy consultant, and in various communications and social media-related jobs.
