Opening Keynote: Impacts of emerging technologies and innovation on retail - A candid conversation with tech provocateur Kara Swisher
NRF Nexus 2023’s Opening Keynote features a lively fireside chat with noted technology and digital provocateur, Kara Swisher, moderated by Publicis Chief Commerce Officer and NRF Digital Council member Jason “Retailgeek” Goldberg. A co-founder of Recode and maverick podcast host, Kara will share her thoughts on how emerging technologies, innovations, and current economic headwinds are posed to impact retail’s future. This thought-provoking conversation will explore topics like generative AI use cases and potential societal pitfalls; social commerce and the fastest growing audience platform, TikTok, now being used for product discovery and design; understanding the metaverse “post-mortem” to leverage the few good bits like AR/VR/mixed reality; and how the current economic outlook plays in the constantly shifting consumer and retail landscape. Attend this fireside chat to take ice-breaker conversations into the opening cocktail reception and dinner that follow immediately after.
