About the Topic

Entering a new decade brings forth new expectations, new hopes. With its advanced pace, the field of computing takes a big share of such expectations and hopes. What are the technologies that have the most potential to shape the field of computing? Is it just artificial intelligence, or should I pay attention to more? This talk has an interactive nature where audience will be asked their opinion on each and every technological prediction. It will also cover what happened in the last few years leading to this decade. The predictions will bear an IEEE bias. The speaker will also present his predictions of the matter. As it may take several years to bring a successful product to the market, now is the right time to think of technologies that have the most potential. This talk should be of interest to computing and technology enthusiasts, as well as entrepreneurs and students looking for monetization and learning opportunities.
