TechWorking: ‘Beyond Mobile’ with Futurist Robert Scoble – January 25

Techworking sponsored by Rackspace

Over the next decade we will look at our smartphone screens less and less as we use things like Magic Leap more and more. Augmented Reality is coming. Virtual Reality will take entertainment minutes away. Even if you use your mobile phone’s screen to watch a virtual reality event, it will be quite a different experience than staring down at a mobile phone in your hands.

Plus, you will look at, and interact with your world quite differently thanks to beacons, Internet of Things, new kinds of sensors and artificial intelligence systems to fuse data, analyze it, and present it in new ways.

Think this is science fiction? Technology futurist Rober Scoble will bring you a number of companies that are bringing ground-breaking technologies to you today, including in airports, football stadiums, and shopping malls.

We will talk about how cloud is everywhere in this new world and the trends that are soon to be hitting us, whether in self driving cars or augmented reality glasses, and how our businesses need to prepare now.


Robert ScoblePresented by Robert Scoble. As Futurist for Rackspace, the leading Managed Cloud Computing Company, Scoble travels the world looking for what’s happening on the bleeding edge of technology for Rackspace. He’s interviewed thousands of executives and technology innovators and reports what he learns in books (“The Age of Context,” a book coauthored with Forbes author Shel Israel, has been released at http://amzn.to/AgeOfContext) , YouTube, and many social media sites where he’s followed by millions of people.
