UPDATE: With almost 50 people attending and a very lively conversation between the panelists and the audience, the event was a big success. One panelist mentioned: ” This is more like a TED talk” and GABA received multiple very positive emails after the event.
More to come soon.
Not too long ago, there was a computer everywhere. If you didn’t have one – yet – you hoped to get one soon. Now computers are on their way out, as much as telephones and fax machines. Computers have largely disappeared into the crevices of every-day devices from phones to dishwashers, cars, and baby toys. You can wear a computer on your skin or under your skin and manage your life from your heartbeat to your bill pay. Today 9 year olds look in amazement at rotary phones. How soon will children ask their wearable device “what’s a computer”?
These transitions have a significant impact on a wide range of fields from social to economic to legal and they will change significantly how we lead our lives.
This high-profile GABA panel explores how far computers have developed and where they will go next. Expect an inspiring and lively evening for everyone interested in next developments towards a time when the Web and smart phones feel a bit antiquated.
