Mobile Summit Preview: Where Is Mobile Taking Us?

Mobile technologies have been adopted around the world at a stunning pace, yet the implications are only beginning to emerge

  • January 29, 2013

The rise of mobile computing and the seeming ubiquity of cell phones have influenced nearly every aspect of our personal and professional lives.  Mobile technologies today are all but taken for granted. Despite the speed with which these technologies have been embraced, however, the impact of the mobile revolution and the opportunities it presents are far from being understood. 

For over a decade now, MIT Technology Review has hosted events around the world that examine significant emerging technologies and their impact.  This summer, for the first time, we will bring the discussion to San Francisco and delve into this compelling emerging market with our inaugural Mobile Summit.

On June 10-11, 2013, we will gather leading innovators to help us examine the most significant emerging devices and applications, and to explore new technologies being developed to improve the mobile experience.

Program highlights include:

  • Michael Sippey, VP of product at Twitter, on the company’s “mobile first” strategy
  • Rick McConnell, president of Akamai, on delivering a faster mobile Web
  • Muriel Médard, professor at MIT, on research that promises to improve video on the go
  • Aaron Levie, CEO of Box, on sharing and accessing content via a new operating system for the cloud

The conference will explore the next wave of innovation in emerging mobile technologies that will define our mobile lives, highlighting the changes we can anticipate in areas including work, health, entertainment, and commerce.

Make plans today to join us in San Francisco this summer, and watch the event’s website for details that will be unveiled in the weeks ahead.
