Digital Telepathy: When Every Thing Connects

Once upon a time, our phone, the fridge and TV were distinct devices, manufactured in distinctly different environments. Not anymore. Today, our devices share technologies in an unprecedented manner. We can use our phone to watch on-demand programming. When the power goes out, we may get a text notification from our fridge. If you're higher tech, the grocery list can transfer easily through your wireless network from your Smart Fridge to any device. Convergence and interconnection are the new name of the game, and along with apps and wireless networking, several revolutionary interconnection technologies will soon change every detail of our lives - forever. This is the Internet of Things - a future where people and objects communicate in unprecedented ways. In this panel we'll explore the dynamics of interconnection and convergence and address the need for a more interdisciplinary approach to design, engineering, development, communication and privacy.
