RocGrowth – Cybersecurity, AI and More: How ROC is a Consequential Player

February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

RocGrowth Cybersecurity Event
Please join RocGrowth to hear a frank assessment of Rochester’s technology attributes from Steve Hoover, Executive Director of RIT’s Global Cybersecurity Institute and, previously Xerox’s Chief Technology Officer, and Walter Johnson, CEO of FLX AI and, previously, a senior executive at Xerox’s PARC, the renowned R&D affiliate.

Both Steve and Walter attained PhDs prior to launching successful technology careers.  Over three decades, they experienced first-hand many of the major technology waves.  Both spent considerable time in Silicon Valley prior to moving to Rochester.

RocGrowth’s mission has been about building community for our region’s great innovators since its founding in 2004.  One way they do that is by featuring leading and emerging innovators in a series of open interviews, including audience participation.

RocGrowth has adjusted to the restrictions placed on social interaction by adopting Zoom in lieu of our typical convocation.  RocGrowth will moderate a 30-minute interview, followed by Q&A using the chat feature.

Stay healthy and get vaccinated.  The sooner we conquer this virus, the sooner we will be able to resume in-person events.
