A304 - Tech Wearables: The Next Frontier

2:45 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Barbara Fullerton, Owner/Researcher, Librarian in the Cloud, Inc.

The big tech trend this year is wearables and that will not change! This market brought in $8B in 2013, and by 2017, it is projected to be more than $20B. Learn about wearable tech and apps in this fast-paced session. Here are a few examples: Jawbone’s “Up Coffee” tracks your caffeine intake; smartwatches track your health and contacts your doctor; smartbands for wireless calling; personal trainer trackers; mood nail polish; live logging cameras; smart socks; tag reader gloves, etc. What would this bring to the landscape of the information professional? Imagine the possibilities: Big Data consumption and how to apply it to your clients, GPS for information location, unique training opportunities, new tech positions, and much more.
