COSM is a premier national summit on the converging future of technology. Held in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, the summit highlights the interplay between global innovations and the pullulating Seattle scene of some of the world’s leading tech companies responding to rapidly shifting opportunities. Focusing on the “systems of the world” competing to shape our economy and society, the mission of the conference is to stimulate debate and deliberation on the cosmic unities animating an array of apparently divergent technology areas. From artificial intelligence and blockchain to 5G and crypto-currency, from autonomous vehicles and cloud computing to the biotech revolution and internet commerce, it is all converging in Seattle, and at COSM.

The first rule of the cryptocosm is the barn-door law: “Security first.” Security is not a procedure or a mechanism; it is an architecture.George Gilder, Life After Google
