Panel 2:The Future of The Tech Revolution” panel will be moderated by Maneet Ahuja, CNBC’s Hedge Fund Specialist and “Squawk Box” Producer.

Known as CNBC’s “Wall Street Whisperer”, Maneet will sit down with some of the country’s most prolific money managers and venture capitalists to discuss their biggest bets in tech, the never-ending quest for innovation and what insurmountable problem the next multi-billion dollar start-up will solve.

Panel 3: “Should You Catch the Bitcoin Wave or Stay on Shore?” will address the staying power of bitcoin.

Morgan Stanley’s Chief Executive declared yesterday that bitcoin is “more than just a fad.” On the other hand, hedge fund legend Ray Dalio said last week that “bitcoin is a bubble.” Our soon to be announced panelists debate how far Bitcoin can climb, or fall.

Panel 4: “How Businesses Can Take Advantage of Artificial Intelligence NOW” will educate attendees on how A.I. can help increase revenue in the near future.

You can’t open a business publication without reading how Artificial Intelligence will transform the economy. But for many, A.I. is a confusing and intimidating maze. Our soon to be announced panelists discuss ways A.I. can strengthen revenue streams, or create entirely new ones.
