REQUEST A SPEAKER

Jerry Kaplan is widely known as an Artificial Intelligence expert, serial entrepreneur, technical innovator, educator, bestselling author, and futurist. He co-founded four Silicon Valley startups, two of which became publicly traded companies, and teaches at Stanford University. He has been profiled in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Business Week, Red Herring, and Upside.

A renowned Silicon Valley veteran, Jerry Kaplan founded several storied technology companies over his 35-year career, two of which became public companies. Kaplan may be best know for his key role in defining the tablet computer industry as the founding CEO of GO Corporation in 1987. Two decades before the iPad, Kaplan envisioned a new kind of computer that would be used like a ‘tablet of paper’, with a touch-sensitive screen. Many of GO’s concepts were ultimately incorporated into other early portable computers such as the Palm Pilot, the Apple Newton, and most recently, Apple’s IOS products. Prior to GO, Kaplan co-founded Teknowledge, Inc., one of the first Artificial Intelligence companies to commercialize Expert Systems, which went public in 1986. In 1994, Kaplan co-founded Onsale, Inc., the world’s first Internet auction website. Onsale went public in 1997, and with annual sales approaching half a billion dollars, the company reached a market value of over $2 billion (Onsale was ultimately acquired by Egghead Software, and Kaplan’s online auction patents were later purchased by eBay and Amazon.) In 2004, he pioneered the emerging market for social games by starting Winster.com, where he served as CEO for eight years.
