9:10 – 10:10 a.m. INTRODUCTORY KEYNOTE by Tom Leighton, Co-founder and CEO, Akamai Technologies: “The Role of CDNs in Restoring Trust on the Internet”
ABSTRACT: The Internet is the invention of our generation and compares well with the advent of television, radio, and even the printing press when measured in terms of its impact on the way we live. And this is just the beginning—we probably can’t even imagine what amazing applications are yet to be invented as billions of people, hundreds of billions of devices, and countless exabytes of data become intelligently connected as part of the Internet of Things. But the future of the Internet, along with all the good that it has enabled, is now threatened by multiple powerful entities that would exploit it to do harm. In this talk, we will briefly review the development of CDN technology and the role it can play in reestablishing trust in the connected world that we all rely on.
