The format will be a series of Codex Talks. A Codex Talk is a concise 15 minute presentation from a speaker with the aim of answering a set question related to their industry or technology area. After 15 minutes, the speaker will be asked to make a bold prediction about their industry.  For the benefits of the live audience, a Q&A will take place overseen by a moderator with all the speakers in the session.


A Codex Talk will give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.
