LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- TechIgnite "The Truth Behind Technology", set to explore critical disruptive technologies of today and tomorrow, is the one event for technical professionals to examine the more controversial side of technology such as: What are the ethical aspects of big data?; Did the NSA stop at Stuxnet?; Will gamers save the day when it comes to cybersecurity?; and How real is quantum computing and will it revolutionize technology? 

TechIgnite, an IEEE Computer Society Rock Stars of Technology Event, scheduled for 21-22 March 2017 in San Francisco, CA, represents an exclusive two-day gathering where attendees will connect with well-known industry experts, to hear first-hand insights, use-cases and strategies utilized in four key areas: Cybersecurity, Internet of Things, Big Data, and Emerging Technologies.

TechIgnite Spotlight Keynote speakers include world renowned technology leaders:

  • Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple Computer, Chief Scientist, Primary Data, and
  • Grady Booch, Chief Scientist of Software Engineering, IBM

"Having these keynotes and 25 other C-level speakers who are widely recognized and have greatly contributed to the computer industry, sets the tone for the level of expertise we offer at TechIgnite" said Chris Jensen, Director of Marketing and Sales, IEEE Computer Society. "Our high standards for all speakers and presentations are met by the extensive experience each speaker will share with the audience, providing all attendees with a new perspective on technology."

Attendees will have full access to lively panel discussions addressing top technologies and challenges facing the industry, along with over 40 exhibits on site, and exclusive networking opportunities.
