Powerful New Classes of Applications Are Beginning To Leverage Large Arrays of Computing, Ultra-High Resolutions Displays and Vast Bandwidth - Future in Review (FiRe) 2006 Conference Report
This annual analysis of the Future in Review conference for 2006 present's ideas on how the mobile computing could evolve, short and long range solutions to the energy problem, new models of asset pricing in modern markets, discoveries in nanotechnology, advances in biology and brief summaries of dozens of other topics.
This report examines a few choice threads from the annual Future in Review conference held in San Diego, California in May of 2006. It also touches on an array of smaller topics that came up during the event. The main topics include:
-- An improved outlook for more innovation in general computing devices, especially as they relate to mobility, multiple users, networks and wireless communications. (Think of a high end PC scaled down to the size of a deck of cards communicating over several wireless networks simultaneously.)
-- Powerful new classes of applications are beginning to leverage large arrays of computing, ultra-high resolutions displays and vast bandwidth.
-- Rapidly evolving asset pricing models call into question the current market mechanisms for dealing with valuation and risk.
-- Energy is a major issue but a broad array of actions are likely to mitigate the current situation as improvements in production and efficiency begin to bring supply and demand in to balance.
-- The pace of discovery and innovation in healthcare is accelerating at the same time that they systemic issues facing the system get worse.
