Neil Jacobsohn Vehicles of the future are connected

Interesting how vehicle manufacturers are strutting their stuff at this year's Consumer Electronics Show - and it tells the story of how convergence continues to happen around us. Vehicles, after all, can be personal consumer electronic devices - and they are increasingly becoming linked to everything.

Anton Musgrave Education challenge looming!

Education as we knew it will be challenged to remain relevant in the world of MOOCS and new education models. We need step change solutions for an approaching education crisis. Machines are getting smarter faster than humans are acquiring future relevant eduction!

Doug Vining Or does your supercomputer drive itself?

In the (near) future, cars are going to be smart, connected, and no matter their main power source, highly electronic. It stands to reason that a fully electric car would have computer controls. Why not an autopilot too?

Doug Vining Smartphones on wheels

Soon the smartest thing you own will be your car. Already, cars are shipping with all sorts of sensors and wireless communications interfaces. You can control a lot of the functions with your phone, and soon you'll be getting email from your car when it's due for a service.

In fact, it's already possible to hack your car to interact with many web services. So, for example, you can get a message when your car is started, or arrives at a certain location.

One of the most popular apps will be "Where did I park my car?" especially for people who leave their car at a busy airport parkade for a couple of days, or a crowded shopping mall.

Doug Vining Robocar or motorbot

Very soon the smartest thing you own will be your car. It will be connected, and capable of autonomous action, depending on input from the network and its own sensors. That sounds a lot like a robot. In the future, an "automobile" might mean a lot more than a car you can drive!
