Panel: Wearables 2.0

Panel: Wearables 2.0

Sep 29 2015, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM

MIT Enterprise Forum of NYC Presents:

Wearables 2.0
A Look into the Future of How Wearables Will Shape How we Experience Life, Communication, Education, Media and Beyond

Today, most of us think of wearables as devices to monitor and enhance wellness – heart rate, sleep patterns, footsteps and the like. And we’ve witnessed early experimentation like Google Glass shaping the way we see and connect with the world.

What seems certain is that as wearable technology evolves in the next five years, it will affect our lives in ways we can only imagine — changing our ideas of wellness and medical treatment, how we work, experience entertainment, shop, and what we wear. With trillions of new sensors coming on line each year, and with more than 3 billion people connected to the Internet, and those who have access to it will also become increasingly “aware” of the wearables themselves, the people wearing them and the environment in which they live.

How will this play out? How do we keep data safe while also staying on the bleeding edge of technology?

Join the MIT Enterprise Forum of New York City and our panel of experts as we explore the ecosystem that will result from the wearable revolution! Our speakers are visionaries in their respective fields of neuroscience, virtual reality, social interaction, art and music who are taking wearable technology to places that are fascinating for each of us to get a glimpse of …and imagine what’s possible.
