A very well planned summit from A to Z!” Oz Etzioni, Clinch CEO & Co-Founder “What a difference a day makes!  Ten hours,  thirty-plus speakers and ideas beyond count.  The LDV Summit sowed seeds in my mind that will be sprouting for months to come: so many concepts, technological innovations and business structures to be developed.  Congratulations and thanks are due to LDV and all the participants, this was a necessary and helpful intervention in the discussion of new media.” Stephen Mayes “Congratulations on a superb event.

I got many very valuable new contacts…” Martin Kallstrom, Narrative, CEO & Co-Founder “I really enjoyed the summit—-I learned a lot from the discussions and I met a lot of computer vision people, whom I think I may start another company with someday.
