Keynote speaker: Dr. Ken Gabriel A veteran technologist with a distinguished track record of success across the public and private sectors, Dr. Ken Gabriel is credited with creating the MEMS industry through his role as co-founder of Akustica, a fabless semiconductor company that commercialized MEMS audio devices and sensors. In addition, Gabriel currently serves as Deputy Director of the Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) Group at Google and is the CEO of Draper Laboratory. He has also held the role of Deputy Director, and then Acting Director, of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in the Department of Defense where he led an agency with an annual budget of $3 billion that is charged with managing the Department’s portfolio of its most cutting edge projects to both create and avoid technology surprise.

During his keynote Gabriel will leverage his vast experience to address how sensors are the unsung heroes of technology. To most consumers sensors are all part of a bigger package. To stand out you need to understand how consumers rely on the sensors you produce and then produce sensors that make devices stand out. Tools exist for you to understand how you can differentiate your products. Be more than a feature, be the discriminator for devices.
