Vision: Wear them, Forget them. What that means for the Underlying Breakthrough Technology

In this keynote, Philippe Kahn will discuss the key challenges wearables present: Making things miniature and comfortable as possible, yet allowing individuals to express their personality. Then there is the plug and play infrastructure that needs to work reliably in the background and accommodate a wide ecosystem of heterogenous miniature wearable devices. With wearables, we have the extraordinary convergence of technology and fashion. Whether it's geek fashion or high fashion, our image is a personal expression and a core part of the quantified-self revolution.
