IEEE, the technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, and IEEE Future Directions unveiled details of its IEEE Technology Time Machine 2018 (IEEE TTM 2018) symposium, scheduled for 31 October – 1 November 2018, in San Diego, Calif. A two-day gathering the event is a catalyst for compelling explorations and discussions of the emerging advancements and technologies significantly impacting humanity today, tomorrow, and beyond.
“Advancements in technology in neuroscience, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, advanced agriculture, and more can drive new businesses that can enrich the lives of millions across the globe. TTM 2018’s goal is to imagine, based on our current needs, use cases, and technology limitations, how technology could better serve us in the future – and then determine how to build those visionary technologies into realistic innovations," said Doug Zuckerman, IEEE Life Fellow, and IEEE TTM 2018 general chair.
Themed “Beyond Tomorrow”, IEEE TTM 2018 is IEEE Future Directions’ flagship event devoted to exploring future technology directions. Uniting researchers, thought leaders, practitioners, academics, and policymakers from around the world, the two-day symposium is a springboard for discourse on multiple disciplines and evolving areas, including:
