Oct. 12, 2015

Bannockburn, IL. IPC Apex Expo 2016, scheduled for March 15-17 in Las Vegas, will feature Dean Kamen, inventor, entrepreneur, and advocate for science and technology as the opening keynote presenter on Tuesday, March 15. Kamen will present “Inventions and Innovations.”

As an inventor, Kamen holds more than 440 U.S. and foreign patents, many of them for innovative medical devices that have expanded the frontiers of health care worldwide. The founder of DEKA Research & Development Corp., Kamen’s mission is to foster innovation and he has invented groundbreaking products like the Segway, the IBOT wheelchair, a portable water purification system, and the first wearable insulin pump for diabetics.

IPC Apex Expo keynote attendees will discover how this prolific inventor creates with his own unique palette of mathematics and machines and hear him describe his unique perspective on life, careers and inventing for the future.

On Wednesday, March 16,  Peter Warren Singer, strategist and senior fellow at the New America Foundation, will reveal how science fiction is fast becoming a reality on the battlefield, changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and ethics that surround war itself during his presentation, “Inside the Rise of the Warbots.”

Singer is considered one of the world’s leading experts on changes in 21st-century warfare and has consulted for the U.S. military, Defense Intelligence Agency, and the FBI. Blending historic evidence with interviews from the field, Singer will enthrall keynote attendees with examples of robotic weapons, and how the robotic revolution will change the laws of war that have governed military conflict for generations.

Keynote presentations are free to all registered IPC Apex Expo attendees. The IPC Apex Expo conference and exhibition will run March 15–17. Standards development meetings, professional development courses, and other show activities will take place March 12–17. Access to the exhibit hall is free to pre-registrants ($35 on site).
