English spoken

The pace of change and technological development is currently super-heated and shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. As Ferris Bueller famously said: "Life moves pretty fast, If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it." So that's exactly what the panel will be doing, taking a look at where we are currently, and trying to work out what that might lead to, the sorts of machines that we'll be sharing the planet with, how we'll be working and how we'll be living from day to day. Will we be computing on our wrists? Will our cellphones be implants? Will people accept being chipped? How will we get to work, or, more to the point, will there be such things as dedicated places of work, a.k.a. offices, ten years from now?
