RCellan Jones 

In conversation with Rory Cellan-Jones

Rory Cellan-Jones is the BBC’s principal technology correspondent reporting on the biggest developments and news stories in the field. He has interviewed countless visionaries from Jeff Bezos to Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk to Tim Berners-Lee. He hosts the BBC weekly podcast Tech Tent and is the author of Dot.Bomb: The Strange Death of Dot.Com Britain.

Rory's latest book Always On, Hope and Fear in the Social Smartphone Era, provides the inside story of how mobile tech became omnipresent in our lives. It also includes added personal thoughts as Rory continues to adapt to life with Parkinson’s and explores how technology can be used to support research, enabling results that would improve treatment.

Adrian will chat with Rory on stage about his fascinating life travelling around the globe to report on emerging technology and meeting with some of the world's most influential tech entrepreneurs.
