This week, innovators in mobile technology descend upon Kansas City for the Mobile Midwest conference hosted by Kansas City IT Professionals (KCITP.) Among them is Raj Singh, the developer of a mobile calendar application that goes beyond storing and retrieving scheduling information. This application is actually designed to help you make your appointments, arrive at meeting places and in some cases, communicate with your colleagues to let them know you're running late.

It's a smart calendar. But how smart do you want your calendar to be? Raj Singh spoke with host Gina Kaufmann about the future of artificial intelligence in mobile technology, as well as the likelihood that Kansas City could become a tech hub, if not rivaling Silicon Valley, inching up close behind it.


Gina Kaufmann is the host of KCUR’s Central Standard, a talkshow fueled by curiosity and critical thinking. You can reach her on Twitter, @GinaKCUR.
