conference overview
Who knows what's next? Consistently, TTI/Vanguard members who attend [next] do. In 2012 we heard about gigapixel television; the Lytro camera; and Kinect's impact on the next generation of user interfaces. In 2013, we heard from Nest and Basis Science, mere months before they were acquired; about an energy-efficient version of floating point arithmetic, and a new system for sharing application windows. In 2014, it was digital fingerprints; new developments in quantum computer architectures; and finding causality in big data. Come to San Francisco and find out what's [next]!
