Presentation: Ubicomp

Presentation for UBICOMP 2011, the synopsis of which is this: You are the designers, the thinkers, the starters and doers – that can both imagine technologies of the future and know how to build them. However – as the world and the technology within it becomes increasingly connected, integrated, smart, pervasive, our ability to understand the consequences of our creations has diminished. From grassroots innovation to happy accidents, drawing on field research from Afghanistan to the Americas – Jan will decode the impact of technologies past, present and future and outline the skills required to build the next.
