The third annual Smart Kitchen Summit (SKS) will be held on October 10 and 11, 2017, at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, Washington. Each year, SKS aim to gather leaders in the home appliance, culinary, grocery, smart home, and technology industries to discuss the future of food, cooking, and the kitchen.
Michael Wolf, smart home and Internet of things (IoT) analyst, founded the Smart Kitchen Summit in 2015 when he noticed the emergence of kitchen technology or the smart kitchen. He noted that the relationship between the food people consume and the technology that is shaping that experience was beginning to grow at an increasingly fast pace. With SKS, he wanted to create a forum for conversation around this trend that would bring leading voices together to share ideas and information.
SKS consists of discussions, panels, fireside chats, and workshops on how connectivity, artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning, virtual reality, design innovation, and the on-demand economy will transform the consumer experience with food. The full, two-day schedule can be found here.
Speakers at the 2017 SKS include Michiel Bakker, Director of the Food Program at Google; Victoria Spadaro Grant, CTO of Barilla; Maura Judkis Reporter for The Washington Post; and Tyler Florence, Chef and Host on The Food Network.
SKS also includes opportunities for companies to expand their presence in the industry. The Startup Showcase competition, for example, is a place for emerging leaders to demo and pitch their ideas to an audience of industry leaders.
