Smart Kitchen Summit Welcomes Nathan Myhrvold and Charlie Kindel

The team at Smart Kitchen Summit has been working hard over the past month to get those defining the future of the connected kitchen to join us on October 6th in Seattle and we couldn't be more excited to announce the following additions to our already amazing lineup of speakers:

Nathan Myhrvold, the founder of the Cooking Lab and author of The Modernist Cuisine

Back in 2011, the publication of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, a 2,500 page, six-volume work that some have called the most influential writing on food, cooking and molecular gastronomy this century, shook the culinary world and helped launch the modern food science movement. Prior to its publication, coauthor Nathan Myhrvold was largely known for his work as the former CTO of Microsoft and as CEO of Intellectual Ventures, but since has influenced a generation of chefs, culinary experts and entrepreneurs exploring the intersection between food and science.  

Myrhvold will be joined at the Smart Kitchen Summit on October 6th in Seattle in a fireside conversation by Wilson Rothman, personal technology columnist for the Wall Street Journal, to discuss the evolution of the modern food science movement and what impact it is having on the consumer kitchen.

One of the defining stories in the consumer Internet of Things market in 2016 is the continued emergence of voice interfaces. In many ways Alexa, Amazon's voice interface and virtual assistant technology, is leading the charge through growth of Alexa skills, the voice-enabled capabilities of Alexa, third party partners incorporating the technology, and fast consumer adoption of the Echo, Amazon's popular wireless speaker and connected home hub that brought Alexa into the world. Charlie Kindel leads the product development for Alexa in the smart home, helping to define how Alexa will evolve as a connected home technology. 

At Smart Kitchen Summit on October 6th, Kindel will give a talk discussing the changing nature of the smart home and smart kitchen interfaces and what this means for appliance manufacturers, food brands and consumers.
