Service infrastructure enabling digital economy
Some technology trends are clear – such as multicore processors, disk sizes and network bandwidths. Others, like the evolution of the Web and Semantic Web, less so – largely because these technologies are evolving within the social context of their use. This panel will enter the dangerous territory of making predictions in order to inform discussion about the future digital economy.
- Is the Semantic Web something on the same scale of the web or a small niche activity?
- When will desktop computers disappear in favour of mobile devices?
- Have clouds replaced the grid forever?
- Our panellists are experts on a range of technologies and their uptake.
The panel will be chaired by Prof. David De Roure, with Prof. John Darlington, Vasa Curcin, Jeremy Cohen and Bernard Horan.
