About this event

Byron has produced a diverse body of patented work and has authored an award-winning book about the future of technology. He's presently publisher of Gigaom and finishing up a book on artificial intelligence set to be published in 2017 by Atria, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Bloomberg Businessweek credits Byron with having “quietly pioneered a new breed of media company.” Wired Magazine describes him as “a tall Texan who serves as Demand’s chief innovation officer and who created the idea-spawning algorithm that lies at the heart of Demand’s process.” The Financial Times of London reported that he “is typical of the new wave of internet entrepreneurs out to turn the economics of the media industry on its head.” And Business Insider concluded that Byron “seems like a kooky – and awesome guy… We’d love to buy him a beer.”

Byron and his work has been featured in hundreds of news outlets, including New York Times, Washington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, USA Today, Reader’s Digest, NPR, and the LA Times Magazine. Byron released a book in 2013 called “Infinite Progress: How the Internet and technology will end ignorance, disease, poverty, hunger and war.”
