Our DTS family is growing! We recently welcomed our newest member, Daniel, to the team and we thought we’d introduce you all to Dan.
What do you do at DTS?
I am the business development manager at DTS. I work closely with dynamic and innovative tech companies that want to maximise ROI through brand positioning and networking at DTS. My goal is to ensure that every company I work with receives a personalized and professional approach that will ensure a successful, energetic and fulfilling experience at DTS.
What part of the event are you looking forward to the most?
I’m really looking forward to hearing from so many great tech veterans which have such great experience – from Nasa to the white house – from google to twitter, this year’s speakers are gearing up to really wow all the attendees and really fulfil this year’s tagline “where today’s leaders meet tomorrow’s technology”.
With 200 hundred companies in the startup competition this year, it’s going to get really competitive and I’m looking forward to seeing who can come out on top. I also think that the new Music x Tech section will add a whole new dynamic of fun and energy to DTS 2018.
What’s your favourite tech trend at the minute?
From artificial intelligence to the internet of things, the lines between the digital and physical world are starting to become blurred. In the words of the late Arthur C. Clarke – Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic – and I think AI fits this quote in many aspects of our lives. It’s being incorporated into a more diverse range of applications.
Rather than focusing on one goal, like mastering a game or communicating with humans, AI is starting to make an appearance in almost every new platform, app, or device, and that trend is only going to accelerate in 2018. We’re not at techno-pocalypse levels (and AI may never be sophisticated enough for us to reach that point), but by the end of 2018, AI will become even more of a mainstay in all forms of technology.
What excites you the most about being on the DTS team?
Being part of a hard-working and fun DTS team offers me the opportunity to be on the forefront of the latest insights on future tech and the ways that our lives are continually being impacted by an ever-evolving technological landscape. It’s extremely exciting to be part of such a dynamic team that is bringing the latest tech trends, and the companies behind them, to an incredibly energetic event.
