Join leaders from prominent technology companies, including Amazon, Qualcomm and Illumina at the annual RadyX Conference – a conference completely run by Rady School students.
Now in its fifth year, the RadyX Conference is committed to bringing innovative and disruptive companies to campus to share the ways they are shaking up their industries and changing the business landscape.
A keynote address will be delivered by Durga Malladi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, of 4G/5G at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. His talk will center on the development and implementation of 5G – the fastest high-data transfer rate that will enhance broadband services and mobile networks.
In addition to Malladi’s address, speakers will focus on the development of genomics, the direction of gaming services, self-driving robot artificial intelligence and more.
RadyX is hosted by the Rady Tech Club. The conference brings together a diverse community: faculty and students, the business and engineering campuses, entrepreneurs, investors and corporate professionals. The theme of the 2019 conference is “Trends in Tech,” which will explore a number of topics ranging from subtle to prominent trends in technology.
“This event celebrates the collaborative and innovative nature of the Rady School of Management, as well as the strong ties we have to the local technology, biotechnology and innovative businesses here in San Diego,” said Joey Talia, president of the Rady Tech Club. “We are looking forward to introducing Rady students, the UC San Diego and greater San Diego community to the exciting innovations happening right here in our city.”
The conference is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased here. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on April 12 at the Rady School of Management.
