Generative AI, work from anywhere and multicloud at Dell Tech Forum

The keynote speaker this year is MJ Petroni, CEO of Cyborg Anthropologist and Futurist.

If you love technology and, particularly, artificial intelligence (AI), you will not want to miss the Dell Technologies Forum this year.

Taking place at the Kyalami International Convention Center on 9 November, the Dell Tech Forum is a premier tech conference for technology enthusiasts and business leaders looking to drive innovation and growth.

Visitors will also experience emerging trends, cutting-edge technologies and dynamic speakers, get hands-on with the latest technology solutions, and explore technical sessions with Dell Technologies experts.


This year’s keynote speaker is MJ Petroni, CEO of Cyborg Anthropologist and Futurist at Causeit Inc., sharing his insights into the future of technology and its impact on our world.

Breakaway sessions will also focus on trending topics such as Generative AI, Work from Anywhere, Multicloud and more.

Last year, in a video message, Dell CEO Michael Dell spoke about changing the world.

“This is our mission, to deliver a better tomorrow with you, to capitalise on the twin engines of human inspiration and technology innovation to create our future together.”

The humble PC

Meanwhile, it’s been three years since Dell touched on the Renaissance of the PC.

While the PC has always helped people connect and collaborate, in 2020, at the height of work-from-home and virtual learning, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the world saw just how critical the PC is to all aspects of people’s lives.

It was at that time the company laid out its vision for the future and predicted how the PC-human experience would evolve

“Now, we have another pivotal moment at our fingertips. This time, it’s with generative AI (GenAI). The advances we’ll see from GenAI will compare to the introduction of the PC 40 years ago when it brought unseen levels of productivity to the world, said Sam Burd, President of the Client Solutions Group at Dell Technologies

“Looking beyond the next few years, we see your future PC as a true digital partner. PCs will move beyond driving human productivity to driving human performance. This will require you to reimagine how you work with the familiar laptop and desktop of today,” Burd said.
