Smart Everything: Wearables and Tech Converge

14 March 2016 17:00 - 14 March 2015 18:00

The recent focus on wearable technology may be understating a bigger opportunity. The true power of wearable tech lies in its role in an emerging ecosystem of digitally interwoven objects, and people.

In this panel, we will discuss how the rise of wearables is combining with other technology trends, including the Internet of things, social media, sensors and cloud computing, to create a radical new model for how our needs be met in the near future.

The implications for individuals and businesses are profound. Ordinary people will begin to experience new service models as providers move to meet customers’ needs before they are vocalized. Companies will compete to provide value, not only through speed of delivery, but through more sophisticated anticipation tools, and through more frictionless service.

The panelists will discuss future roadmaps in the converging technology landscape, including critical areas of focus in the short, medium and long term.
