TED talk: 3 Things – that are changing our world in front of our eyes

Session Abstract

It was not your typical techie conversation but one that techies should know, understand and think about. I start it off by saying everyone here loves Tech. WE live for Tech and we are all in IT but tech is the T and it is second to the I, the information… then I talk about the 3 things.. I don’t tell them until I get to it.. The first is Big Data… ten IoT, then Mobile. But – the talk is not about what others would talk about. It is not a next, next, finish talk. No solutions. I talk about what is going on and the future and the possibilities and the realities.
