Keynote Speaker – David Rose

Instructor and researcher at the MIT Media Lab, and the author of the preeminent book on the Internet of Things, Enchanted Objects: Design, Human Desire, and the Internet of Things. “The history of computers has mostly been about efficiency,” Rose told The New York Times  “I think one of the things that's changing is that enchanted objects can be about adding emotion and magic to the fabric of our everyday lives and experiences.” He continues: “Our devices can be a lot simpler, and our interactions to them can be a lotsimpler....These are ordinary things that have extraordinary capabilities.”
