#mediaX2015 Conference: Writing the Code for Personal Relevance

March 31, 2015
mediaX2015 Conference Open

Digital devices and interactive experiences contain embedded code – code that guides their operations and interactions, and in some cases the way the devices learn about their users and promote emotional bonds – like the attachment to a smart phone or a car. Understanding personal relevance is a strategic advantage for innovating the opportunities of tomorrow.

We stand on the threshold of new opportunities for personally relevant interactions between people and their data, their devices, their environments, their communities. A few challenges remain.

Join us on April 16th from 8:00am-4:30pm in the Mackenzie Room, (3rd Fl. Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center) as we dive deeper into…

*Personal communications promise personalized experiences, yet the personalization of communications is compromised by ignorance of context and changes in preferences over time.

*Personal health promises individualized diagnoses and treatments, yet database silos and regulatory dynamics pose challenges that are beyond the domain of any one service, technology or organization.

*Personal entertainment offers to personalize the game experience, make it immersive, make it social. All this beckons, while the boundaries between work and play are more and more ambiguous.

*Personal education promises open learning to the world, and teaching tools that adapt to the user’s interests and learning abilities. At the same time, privacy, politics, funding and access to smart technologies handicap the realization of this vision.

*Personal office technologies promise increased productivity, enhanced working experiences and more leisure time. Yet many the automated systems replacing skilled workers lack judgment and wisdom, multitasking mobile workers are stressed, and forecasts for global employment suggest that unemployment will increase in coming decades.

Technology promises to improve the human experience by personalizing digital experiences. Writing the code for personal relevance is the frontier.

Join us for an exploration of current research providing key insights into this promising future.
