April 11, 2011

Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, will give this year’s MacTaggart Lecture at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival.

Schmidt will be discussing the impact of the Internet revolution and how the television industry can engage with new technologies.

Schmidt commented: “I have always been a profound optimist about the potential for technology to improve people’s lives — though I am also a realist and understand it can be immensely disruptive in the process. So I look forward to discussing the opportunities and challenges ahead for the TV industry in Edinburgh.”
