Over the next decade, intelligent sensor technologies will perform increasingly important tasks in our vehicles, homes, workplaces, neighborhoods and even our bodies. Ubiquitous sentinels of behavior, sensors will dramatically reduce inefficiencies in the ways we work and live. However their emergence will also raise challenging questions of privacy, security and liability. In this presentation , Jonas Lamis, Executive Director, SciVestor Corporation, presents a cross-industry analysis of emerging sensor platforms and the implications on the development community. Key sensing concepts and companies will be examined and how applications that integrate sensors will enable our society. This session will also address the adoption challenges that these technologies will face as the public and political process becomes attuned to their emergence.
