Technology is rapidly changing professional sports similarly to any other field. The conference will highlight processes of knowledge production about technologies of the future as a central sociocultural aspect of technological development. Looking specifically at the event and exhibition industry, there is an incredible and often overwhelming range of AV & IT technology available. Ramesh Raskar is an associate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab. Learn how DARPA is paving the way to a national-security future in which complexity is wrangled to create systems of systems that function more reliably and safely than today’s simpler,” more monolithic systems.
DARPA is developing unmanned platforms, distributed sensing systems, and position awareness technology to facilitate access to the vast maritime expanse in all its manifestations, including arctic, littoral, deep water, and continental shelf, and in all of its many sea states. Sci-fi computers have a habit of turning on their human creators, and while Skynet is probably the most iconic vision of the singularity, the Matrix and its Deus Ex Machina is another horrifying vision of our future.
A member of the National Academy of Science’s Institute of Medicine (IOM) and Committee on Science, Technology and Law, she co-chaired the committee that drafted the National Academies’ Guidelines for Embryonic Stem Cell Research. New technology developments have clearly created incredible new capabilities and opportunities, and have generally helped improve the world around us. GPS started out as a military technology but is now used to hail taxis, get mapping directions, and hunt Pokémon.
New technology for smart windows, described today in the journal Joule, might actually be an intelligent idea. His portfolio comprises the Survivability, Software Systems, Electronic Warfare, Weapons, Sensors, Cyber, and Anti-Tamper Technology teams. Jeff Gore joined the Physics Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as an Assistant Professor in January 2010 after spending the previous three years in the Department as a Pappalardo Fellow working with Alexander van Oudenaarden.
As a display system, multi-touch offers a whole multitude of applications that will benefit event and exhibition organisers over the coming years because it is a versatile and innovative piece of equipment, which will see considerable growth in popularity at future event and exhibition. Just as we’ve seen the fallout from fake news on all sides of the political perspective, so, too, are we starting to see that unbridled and unlimited expectations for certain new technologies are starting to have negative implications of their own.
