Ottawa, Canada - January 31, 2017- The world’s largest vendor-independent developer conference, Devoxx, is pleased to announce the keynote speakers for Devoxx US 2017. Devoxx US is part of the Devoxx network of conferences that attracts over 11,000 attendees, from over 50 countries, at separate events in Belgium, UK, Morocco, France, Poland, and the United States.

The Devoxx US keynote speakers are leading experts on topics that are relevant to forward-thinking software developers. The speakers and topics include the following:

  • Janelle Klein from Open Mastery will present “What Is Identity", which explores using software as a metaphor to understand the human brain. This keynote will introduce a new language of metaphorical shapes to describe the “Architecture of Identity,” and will examine some of the key dysfunctions in our organizations through this lens.
  • Brian Kane’s keynote, titled “Personality is the New Ringtone: Experiments in AI Design", will discuss how artificial intelligence is changing the way we think about design, and how we identify and address the new challenges of designing intelligent and connected devices and experiences for people. Brian is also the developer behind the viral Billy Bass Alexa hack.
  • Olivier Gevaert, assistant professor of medicine at Stanford University, will talk about how deep learning technology is being applied to state-of-the-art cancer treatments. Olivier’s research makes extensive use of TensorFlow, an open source library for machine learning.
