Where the wide reach of mobile Internet and novel human device interfaces will take us?
The last decade was by all means the decade of the widespread Internet. We have become almost super -- humans, when sitting at our desktop computers, interconnecting our brains and the brains of machines worldwide. With Google and Wikipedia at fingertips, everyone feels like a potential winner of the Millionaires show.
Today we enter the decade of an abundant mobile connectivity. It will transform the Internet and humanity in a similar way mobile phones transformed telecommunications twenty years ago. Mobile Internet today is seen as a multitude of small devices with small screens and tiny keyboards. But there are technologies already available, poised to free us from the LCD / QWERTY cage. Touchless input and retinal imaging output have already been mastered and developed. Connected, context aware, wearable teleputers will soon become almost integral parts of our bodies and brains, forever transforming the way we interact with the world.
During the session, Szymon will cover the emerging techniologies and trends, which converge to make the wildest science fiction a reality before 2020.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
