On March 8th, 2017, a remarkable group of influential and innovative leaders will join representatives from some of the world’s top employers to discuss the jobs of today, tomorrow, and beyond.

They’ll address new and existing skills, and their relative demand today and in the future. They’ll discuss viable and changing learning paths, and offer projections on the most effective ways to prepare for entry into burgeoning new fields.

This special event is Udacity Intersect 2017, a day-long global conference held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. It is open to the public, and will offer exclusive opportunities for engagement, connection, and interaction.

Early Bird Tickets available here!

Through keynote speeches, workshops, panels, and breakout sessions, speakers and panelists will address a changing economy, lifelong learning and the future of work, and the transformational technologies that are reshaping the global hiring landscape.

Tomorrow’s possibilities will be understood through today’s realities—who is hiring right now, what are they looking for, what skills are most in demand, which education paths are the most valuable and valued, and what fields offer the most promise for anyone pursuing rewarding and meaningful employment.

Intersect 2017 will feature influential leaders from the world’s hottest fields—including artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and autonomous vehicles—as well as education specialists, journalists, and authors whose work contributes to our understanding of these new arenas.

As an event attendee, you will enjoy unprecedented opportunities to engage directly with leaders from Google, IBM Watson, Didi Chuxing, Amazon Alexa, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Baobab Studios and The Nature Conservancy.

You’ll hear from speakers such as Dr. Steven Abrams, VP at IBM Watson, Gayle Laakmann McDowell, Founder and CEO at CareerCup, Dr. Ashwin Ram, Head of AI R&D at Amazon Alexa, and Sebastian Thrun, Founder and CEO at Udacity.

Employers from Google, IBM Watson, Bosch, Mercedes Benz, and more will be on hand to meet, network, and connect with you during the day, and everyone will come together for the evening’s closing celebration.

Early Bird Tickets are available now through February 18th, at a cost of $295—40% below main ticket pricing. Udacity students receive an exclusive code that discounts this rate even further. Register for the event today by purchasing your tickets here.

2017 will offer no other happening quite like Udacity’s Intersect 2017 Conference. The event promises to be a memorable, informative, and transformational experience for all. If you have a reason to be interested in the jobs of today, tomorrow, and beyond, then you have a reason to attend Intersect 2017.
