Contextual Applications: The Next Wave

Saturday, March 14
11:45AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom B
Austin Convention Center

Sensors and smart objects are being incorporated at a breathtaking pace into our environments. Coupled with the ever-increasing capabilities of the Cloud and Mobile devices, they enable the creation of intelligent applications that respond and adapt to the particular context of each user.

Today, the number of applications that leverage these capabilities is minuscule. For example: very few apps change functionality when used in a specific place or time or when in motion vs. static.One reason is that the enabling software tied to these components is mostly fragmented and very basic - limited generally to simple actions or sensory events of individual devices.

Moctezuma is leading a team that has created one of the first new, powerful contextual languages and associated platforms that enable development of these new applications. During the talk he will present its current state, future direction and how it promises to unleash a new wave of possibilities.
