This weeks event is an extension of George Gilder's recent book and thoughts Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy focused on the ongoing shift from centralized, hierarchical control of users data, to a more secure ground state where the individual human being is put in control and every action is timestamped into a digital ledger preventing companies such as Google maintaining control. Many of ArcBlock's recent product releases and services including the ArcBlock Blockchain Development Platform, ArcBlock ID, and ABT Wallet, ABT Chain Node, Decentralized Identity Solutions and more are making George's vision a reality.


COSM is a unique event putting technology leaders like ArcBlock directly in touch with the world's top thinkers powering tomorrow's most consequential technology. COSM was started by the Discovery Institute; an international organization focused on promoting thoughtful analysis of local, regional, national, and international issues with a special focus on the role of science and technology in our culture. The goal of COSM 2019 is to give today's leading technology companies access to these important new advances and to explore the far-reaching and opportune horizons of Life after Google and Facebook. In this new era of innovation, everyone will be affected, but only a relative few will be prepared to understand — and make the best and most informed decisions about the biggest technology upheavals we have seen since the start of the internet and to benefit from the upsides that these new technologies like blockchain and 5G can bring everyone.


COSM is an exclusive national summit on the converging technologies remaking the world as we know it. For decades, George Gilder has written presciently about the technological revolutions shaping our society, from the microchip in Microcosm, broadband in Telecosm, and now the cryptocosm in Life After Google. What a world: artificial intelligence, blockchain, 5G, crypto-currency, autonomous vehicles, cloud computing, the biotech revolution, and internet commerce — all are converging in Seattle, and at COSM. The mission of the conference is to stimulate debate and deliberation amongst industry leaders on the unities animating these divergent technology areas.

The future meets here.
