Are you ready for the new generation of embedded technology and ubiquitous systems that pervade our daily lives?
With Apple rumoured to be launching smart apple watch or the gesture gaming experience, or home automation of connected use of lingual translations, the explosion of data and lower cost multi-sensor devices connected over networks are rapidly changing the possibilities of technology and human sensory intervention.
The Healthcare sector is providing leading early examples of patient care augmentation, improved palliative and whole of life care and overall cost effective improvement from integrated technology and services. Often using accessible low cost smart phone and other devices and connectivity with new biosensor and information applications, these technologies are opening up a new frontier of open platform augmented services. Many lessons can be learnt from the healthcare industry in the emerging abilities to integrate information in context with a range of services and resources for the advancement of technology enabled industry and the benefit of society.
This session will illustrate the health sector revolution with current work of the Platform 3.0 Business Use Cases that is defining how digital orchestration, micro sourcing, secure integration and contract metering and multi-device user experience is transforming IT and Industry.
