OMSI Science Pub presents:
How Computing Will Change the World
With Steve Brown, CEO, Possibility and Purpose, LLC

The historical, monumental impact of computing will be dwarfed by what it will make possible in the next decade. Computing has already transformed the modern world. Without it there would be no smartphones, no in-car navigation, and no Internet. And many of the products that we take for granted just wouldn’t exist. Modern consumer goods are imagined, designed, tested and manufactured using computers. But the true impact of computing is yet to come.

The exponential evolution of computing will create more value and more disruption in the next decade than in the last half century. It will fuel a total rethinking of human mobility, work, and leisure. It will even change the nature of the objects that fill our lives.

In this talk Steve Brown, a former futurist from Intel, will explain how computing will dramatically change almost every industrial sector from agriculture to retail, and from entertainment to healthcare. If you want to learn more about robotics, self-driving cars, blended reality, deep learning, smart objects, personalized medicine, and the Internet of things, this will be a fun talk you won’t want to miss.

Steve Brown is an accomplished keynote speaker, writer, strategist, and executive coach. In his prior position as Futurist at Intel Corporation, Steve helped Fortune 500 companies understand the impact computing will have in the coming decade. As CEO of Possibility and Purpose, LLC, Steve now combines his understanding of technology, business, ecosystem, demographic, and human trends to help companies understand the possibilities of the future. Steve has over 25 years of experience in the high tech sector spanning research, engineering, marketing, manufacturing, management, and communications. He holds both bachelors and masters degrees in Micro-electronic Systems Engineering from Manchester University.
