We had the pleasure of having Google’s Director of Product Aparna Chennapragada speak at TNW Conference back in May. This November, catch similar tech giants at Momentum– our new event for New York.


In five years, five billion mobile phones will be in circulation across the globe.

With so much time being spent on each device, we are going to have the largest cache of personal data about daily activities on our hands. How can we use this to our advantage and  build products that really give people the ability to use their phone to get things done in the real world?

In this compelling talk, Aparna shares how to build the mobile products of the future, using a secret sauce of AI in combination with great UI.
