Accelerating Drug Discovery Panel
The future of healing and overcoming disease rests in science and drug development. Industry-wide, more than $100 billion is spent on patients in clinical trials – accounting for 25% of budgets. In the post COVID-19 era, there is a movement to reform how drug development is conducted. The rapid development of CoVID vaccines shines a path for biopharma, regulatory agencies and health technology companies to accelerate innovation and ensure research is made accessible. These possibilities will require the consistent, widespread adoption of transformative research methods and innovative organizational approaches.
Venture Capital Panel
This distinguished Panel is composed of lead investors worldwide. Discussion will focus on what is influencing the flow of venture capital now as to its directions and relative quantities. CEWIT Conference attendees will be invited to submit their questions.

Applied AI Panel
Artificial intelligence implies that a machine mimics "cognitive" functions that are normally associated with the human mind. AI is a constellation of technologies that permits machines to sense, comprehend, act and learn and is transforming the relationship between people and technology. Panelists will include distinguished speakers from Zebra Technologies, IBM Research, the University of Louisiana, and Zeblok.
Smart Infrastructure Panel
Smart infrastructure technologies aim to enhance the way people live and work. This panel will explore a wide range of topics, such as cyber physical systems, IoT, robotics, cyber security, artificial intelligence, data visualization, blockchain, etc. Panelists will include distinguished speakers from AT&T, IBM, Twitter, the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and Stony Brook University.
