Predictive Apps: The Butler in Your Phone

New tech products will learn your habits, anticipate your needs, and come to you with suggestions on what to do and when, before you know you know you need to make the choice. We’re entering a growth phase in Predictive Apps and it’s giving rise to dozens of new companies to bring it all home for real people. This session gathers early innovators to answer the big hairy questions people are asking. Where are we going and who will lead? What are the biggest hurdles we still need to get over? Why is this hard? Will these services ever be good enough to rely on? How will predictive products coordinate with social networks? What about the role of wearable technology (glasses and watches) in predictive tech?
