Nicholas Thompson
editor-in-chief of Wired, former editor of NewYorker.com

As the editor-in-chief of Wired, Nicholas Thompson is the first person to know and investigate both the technological and ethical developments as they unfold in Silicon Valley. He is a contributor for CBS News and regularly appears on CBS This Morning and CBSN and speaks at the cutting edge of digital innovation, championing tech’s role in making the world a better place. How will AI and robotics change our devices, the way we work, earn a living, fight wars, solve problems? 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? Design, culture, media, tech, ethics, and our digital future—Nicholas Thompson is more than ready to break the news with big ideas and fearless takes.  Join this insightful keynote address which will include a special Q&A with Thompson and ASAE's Associations Now editor-in-chief, Julie Shoop.
