Bionics, Autonomous Vehicles, and Augmented Reality? Company President and Futurist on the Future World of Data.
Autonomous cars, biotechnology and more. We asked two people intimately familiar with data and its impact on tomorrow about the possibilities that excite them—Mike Cordano, President and Chief Operating Officer of Western Digital, and Jason Silva, futurist, acclaimed TV host and data personality. Mike and Jason sat down and were tasked to blindly select provocative questions from a bowl of data-related queries. Read on to see their surprising reactions and answers!
