Join us for a panel on key technology trends in 2015

January 15, 2015

Transformation is a core LinkedIn value, and nowhere is this truer than within our R&D organization. In addition to the professional transformation we encourage in our employees, we also focus on the way that emerging markets and technologies are transforming the industry and economy as a whole.

In line with this value, I invite you to join us in our SF R&D office for a panel conversation of some of the most important trends that will shape the world of technology and entrepreneurship in 2015. I'll lead this panel of experts in a discussion ranging from machine learning and wearables to the sharing economy and changing capital markets, this panel will give insight into the themes that will define the industry in the year to come.
