The Georgia Tech/IEEE-USA industry roundtables are one-day roundtable discussions and workshops with research pioneers and top experts to form research and partnership agendas for future opportunities in various domains.
Stay tuned over the summer and fall of 2012 for this engaging opportunity for meaningful discussion and to form new research agendas upon which the Georgia Tech enterprise can base business partnerships.
The Georgia Tech/IEEE-USA industry roundtables are invitation only events. If you are interested in attending, please contact Dara Madzimoyo, Director of Special Media Projects, at email@example.com.
The Summer/Fall 2012 topics include:
Pervasive data is a part of our everyday lives—clarifying what we do and how we do it, and making our lives easier. Data will live and breathe with us, helping us to navigate and interpret real-world surroundings with greater wisdom, and understand the state and future of the things that move our everyday lives.
Power of the Crowd
Open platforms and social media continue to encourage and influence collective thought— giving rise to new dimensions of crowd-based data that give us greater depth and scope of understanding. Organizations and societies are turning to collaborative systems to create new dialogues, and to help identify, address, and solve complex problems.
More and more, individuals are defined by their unique data. An explosion of technologies and applications across industries has created a world where the people themselves create and convey digital signatures about nearly anything— providing business, academia, and government with unprecedented detail about the people and populations they serve.
The Internet of Things
We live in a world where everything is increasingly related to everything else. But while we’re busy with devices and gadgets and communicating with each other, how will all of the connected devices (5 billion now and an estimated 50 billion by 2020) link together and keep us going?
Changing Media Modalities
Content is becoming ever nimble and cleverly adapted into nearly every aspect of peoples’ lives via social media platforms, personalization services, smart devices, and applications— blurring the lines of how we search and receive the information we care about.
A brave new world of education technology has sparked unprecedented innovations in distance learning and personalized instruction— making learning lifelong and global, and increasing human potential in ways never before imagined.
Interdisciplinary innovations in rich data application, graphics, signal processing, sensors, and displays will blur physical and cyber environments—changing the very nature of our surroundings. From medical training possibilities in augmented environments to novel experiences via mobile devices in the palm of our hands, Mixed Reality is moving us into new spaces of existence and understanding.
