Technology for a Human Future

Greetings from the Great Hall of the Australian National University in Canberra, where Lama Nachman, Director of the Intel Anticipatory Computing Lab, is speaking on "Liberating Technology: the future of human agency". Nachman has an impressive career researching specialized sensor networks. However they also argue that the sensors already in smartphones are not being used to their true potential, to help people. The key to this, they suggest, is context, if the application knows what people are doing at the time, they can provide more useful help.
