The pride of Medford, Michael Bloomberg, and Fidelity Investments’s Abby Johnson have been added to the HUBweek roster.

Johnson will join Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City and founder of Bloomberg LP, for what organizers promise will be a “pragmatically optimistic” discussion on the state of innovation.

HUBweek, which kicks off Tuesday, explores the intersections of art, science, and technology. Johnson and Bloomberg will sit down together Oct. 13. The annual festival of ideas will feature an array of speakers, including Malcolm Gladwell, Deepak Chopra, Celeste Ng, Ben Mezrich, Dr. Atul Gawande, and Amy Cuddy, in addition to interactive art exhibitions, a robotics showcase, and other events.
