How to Profit from the Challenges and Opportunities in the New Era of Computing
Featuring Qualcomm Innovation Center, MAYA Design and Carnegie Mellon University
Location: Carnegie Mellon University, Adamson Auditorium (7500 Wean Hall), Pittsburgh, PA
A new era is dawning at the intersection of design, technology and business. What does the future hold? Join the Pittsburgh Technology Council and Carnegie Mellon University’s Ad Idem for a “meeting of the minds” with top industry leaders, and find out what’s next in this innovative space. Inspired by the book, Trillions: Thriving in the Emerging Information Ecology, the event will address the following topics, among others:
- Big Data
- Designing for People in the Connected World
- Preparing Organizations for the Next Information Revolution
- Internet of Things
In the very near future, the idea of computing will be turned inside out. Instead of information being in computers, people, products and cultures will begin to live "in" the information. With massive connectivity, complexity will be inevitable. Organizations will survive and thrive by being ready for a world where technological complexity surpasses anything we've seen yet; a world saturated with computation must also be saturated with good design. Don’t miss this hour of big ideas from nationally-renown industry leaders!
