#IoTDinner London June 28th 2016 – The future of the user interface in the home and beyond

June is going to be crazy busy, not only do we have events in Warsaw on the 14th and Berlin on the 16th (which I am riding to on my motorbike) but we also have two public events in London starting with the #IoTDinner on the Tuesday the 28th followed by the #engagORSDinner on Thursday the 30th June.

At the #IoTDinner we will be focusing on the future of the user interface in the home and beyond as our theme and what we need to do to prepare for the forth-coming shift from touch to voice and beyond.

At the #IoTDinner in May with James Akrigg from Microsoft we looked at HoloLens and how Mixed Reality will change the way we see the World around us, now we move on to look at how we will interact with that developing World.

echoThis is a significant shift directly relevant to manufacturers and developers.

Over the last three decades we have travelled from the keyboard to the mouse and touchpad, to the touchscreen and more recently to voice.  Indeed, in a recent publication “Mary Meeker’s 2016 internet trends report” Mary suggests that typing into a search bar is very last year and that in only five short years, at least 50 percent of all searches are going to be using either images or speech.

As consumers become more comfortable with the speed and ease of using voice as the interface how will manufacturers react and how will these changes affect the applications that run on these devices?

How will Amazon Echo, Siri and other systems develop?  What will they allow us and our customers do?  What are the opportunities?  How will manufacturers like Samsung develop mobile technology to take full advantage of voice?  We hope to answer all these questions and more.

A product or brand reaches a level of being “oversubscribed” when there are far more buyers than sellers. It’s when demand massively outstrips supply. It’s when many more people want something than capacity allows for. This talk is designed to give you a recipe for becoming oversubscribed, and introduce the underlying ideas that drive this phenomenon.

Successful entrepreneur, international speaker and best-selling author Daniel Priestley, will be sharing the seven philosophies businesses must live by to stay oversubscribed, why sharing your ideas with your market increases demand, what role you should play in your business and why turning away potential clients sets you up for success.
