This week is the annual "Realizing the Vision of a Connected World" symposium, hosted by American material innovation company Corning. The event itself is focussed on understanding and projecting the future of technology by bringing together some of the world's juiciest brains to ignite and inspire discussion ; asking us the questions that most of us would find so difficult. Where are we going? Why? And significantly, how?
Amongst a host of distinguished speakers such as Dr Genevieve Bell, Vice President of Intel, and Dr Bill Buxton, principal researcher at Microsoft, will be our founder and director Dr Neil Roodyn - see him here on stage at a talk earlier this week. Having been involved in the software development industry since the 1980s, Neil will be shedding some insight into where he sees the future, and how he is realising his vision.
Corning's "Realizing the Vision" symposium is a landmark event on the calendar for any tech-head and the event itself will highlight the exciting possibilities technology has to offer, and will give us a glimpse into the near and not-too-near future. Corning is perhaps best known for their viral "A Day Made of Glass" video series, a snapshot of the future where every surface is interactive and technology is seamless.
The event itself, hosted in Mountain View California, will contain some select cutting-edge technologies depicted in Corning's "A Day Made of Glass" series such as mirrored interactive displays and other exciting visionary technology.
Glass is such an important part of our modern technologies that we need to consider how our world would look without modern glass. We are living in the Age of Glass, check out the latest videos by our friends the Mythbusters.
