Blockchain, Cloud, VR, AI, Deep/Machine Learning, IOT, etc... If you're looking for yet another presentation championing these sorts of concepts as being in the "golden quadrant" and how they are going to "disrupt" and create a "paradigm technological shift" in operations... this is definitely NOT the session for you. Instead, this session seeks to free you from the matrix and examines a realistic view of how these technologies actually might impact things in the reasonable future, given their current limitations, security and privacy implications, and their practical application in the real world. The session promises to be 100% buzzword compliant while avoiding hype, the superlative, and instead attempting to present some actual practical information.
