Wired 2015: Sneak Preview
Innovators from around the globe are set to present revolutionary ideas at this year's Wired 2015 event, taking place at London's Tobacco Dock from October 15-16.
The two-day event will host more than 50 speakers talking about their pioneering work in science, design or business. Growing human organs, food reinvention, artificial intelligence and 3D-printed fashion are among the topics on the agenda. Here are a few areas slated for discussion that we're particularly excited about:
- Boosting User Experience: The way consumers interact with their tech devices is poised to change, with advances in gesture recognition technology offering an alternative to touching screens and buttons. Hiroshi Ishii, founder of Tangible Media Group, will provide insights from his experience in creating interfaces that blur the line between digital and tangible, outlining a forward-looking vision for human-computer interaction.
- Ambitious Tech: Technologists are bound to inspire new thinking as they discuss advancements in 3D printing, artificial intelligence and emotive computing engineering. Our Raw Human report explored the importance of heightening emotion with technology, so practical examples of this won't escape our radar.
- Futuristic Fodder: We'll be looking to expand on concepts featured in our report Feeding Tomorrow's Consumers, where we spotlighted new foods of the future and the emerging tech producing them. Lars Williams uses a combination of intuition, cookery and science in his role as research and development chef at Copenhagen-based restaurant Noma, so should offer an interesting take on creating novel flavours and dishes.
