Invisible Computing - Fusing Wearables & Big Data

We are creating massive amounts of information that far exceed any of our historical expectations, and the machines we use to access that information are becoming smaller and more integrated into our day-to-day experiences. This reality is the result of the collision of various technology movements — wearable computers, big data, mobility, and the internet of everything. User experiences are changing and our screens are starting to disappear as we move towards a world where information empowers us like never before through voice, speech, machine learning and other emerging technologies. It's time to break free from tethered computing and take digital experiences with us using our invisible computers!
