5 speakers to look out for at Apps World Europe

Apps World Europe is fast approaching and with the speaker list growing rapidly is an event not to be missed. To ensure it’s in your diary we thought we’d bring you the top five speakers to look out for at Apps World Europe.

1) Babak Parviz – Google Glass pioneer and now vice president at Amazon
Parviz is not to be missed thanks to his role in developing one of the most exciting technologies in wearables to date and his exciting move to Amazon. His presentation will be the keynote speech within the Wearable Tech stage on the second day of the show, November 13th.

2) Jason Bradbury – Host of the Gadget Show US and UK
Big personalities help in any show and Bradbury’s presence is bigger than most. It’s no surprise really since before he got into The Gadget Show he performed in a double act with none other than Little Britain star David Walliams whilst studying at Bristol University. An inventor and gadget freak, Bradbury will be presenting on the Developer World stage on November 12th.

3) Peter Molyneux OBE – Founder, creative director, 22Cans?
If you love gaming, Molyneux is a name you will be familiar with since he has a career history in the industry that spans four decades. In fact he helped create the world of video gaming and for that has received multiple lifetime achievement awards as well as his OBE. Products he has designed include Populous, Theme Park, Syndicate, Theme Hospital, Dungeon Keeper, Black & White and the Fable franchise and a new game is imminent. He will be presenting in the Gaming World track.

4) Sir Nigel Shadbolt – Professor of Artificial Intelligence and co-founder and chairman of the Open Data Institute (ODI)
After 33 years in the world of open data, artificial intelligence, computer and web science as well as a career that has also spanned in philosophy, psychology and linguistics Nigel was knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours last year “for services to science and engineering”. His keynote presentation will be on the Droid World stage on November 12th.

5) Kevin Harrington – Entrepreneur and investor, Shark Tank
