Last month I attended the SXSW Interactive conference in Austin Texas. With President Obama as the keynote and a strong match with Appfactory’s focus on health and med-tech it was an opportunity too good to pass up. I had an amazing 6 days immersed in innovation and new ideas. I talked with a diverse mix of amazing people and discovered a strong collective community will to improve lives through technology.
A number of groups approached me to “brain-dump” my experience both for people considering going next year and those who were unable to make it. Below is a link to the presentation I delivered for those good folks (sorry haven’t shaken my bad Texan impression yet).
To get your brain waves flowing we touch on:
- invisible and streaming apps replacing stand alone downloads
- health and med-tech wearables
- Sophia the robot panelist from Hanson Robotics
- machine learning, AI, robotics
- virtual and augmented reality
- blockchain and Ethereum (this is currently blowing my mind!)
It was put together as a talk not a stand alone presentation deck so if you find it of value and would like an in-person or Google Hangout session where I can run you through it please get in touch.
I’m counting the days until SXSW 2017….. These are the events that make me realise how much technology can help and I love being involved in ensuring it happens.
All the best
Dan @ Appfactory
