Event Details

We all have a mobile phone, our addiction to them is obvious. We're talking less and messaging more. We're mindlessly swiping touchscreens, sharing selfies, voicing our opinions, downloading music, movies and books we'll never consume. We're downloading apps by the million, we expect information to be at our fingertips in a nano second. Our devices are now monitoring our heart rates, blood sugar levels and our happiness. Siri and Cortana will chat to us until we can chat no more. But what's next?

James Tagg will open this session with a short talk sharing his vision of the future of mobile. Having invented the first LCD touchscreen and recently published a book about the science of information, and being the founder and CTO of the world's first global mobile network, he is well-placed to tell us what he thinks the future of mobile holds for us in terms of what is or isn't possible.

After the short talk, come and enjoy a big conversation, facilitated by James Tagg and Lloyd Davis about whatever aspects of the future of mobile technology most puzzles, enthuses, or irritates you, answering the question “What does the future of mobile hold for us?”

This session will lead on to a series of discussions along this theme that we're holding in London later on in November. You can find out about and register for those here.

Our discussions will be held under open space conditions. This is an informal approach to let to choose what aspect of the future of advertising you want to talk about. Anyone in the room can suggest a topic area to cover, a more specific area of interest or perhaps to ask a question of others. The only rule is the law of mobility, which says that if you're not getting anything out of the conversation you are in, you're very welcome to move on somewhere else. We think you'll find this a very productive way to get to grips with a topic like this. 

A big thank you to aql for hosting and sponsoring this session. Light refreshments will be provided.

Timing: Doors will open at 10am for a 10.30am start. We'll continue for about 2 hours.
