It was another great day for Attensity at the 11th annual Future in Review (FiRe), the leading global conference on the intersection of technology and the economy. This is an amazing group of thought leaders who have come together to discuss “Digitizing the Planet”. The 2013 FiRestraters have been selected for igniting conversations, analyzing, and creating the future of technology, economics, pure science, the environment, genomics and education. Here are the 2013 FiRestarters.
This is a fantastic summary of conversations from yesterday’s sessions posted on the Strategic News Service (SNS) blog.Vint Cerf discusses internet authentication, pseudonymity and resilience and Attensity’s CEO, Kirsten Bay, talks about taking voice digitization beyond words with Nuance and Plantronics.
CNet is also covering the conference with an interview of Vint Cerf, who says social conventions have not kept up with technology, and the InteleSense anouncement of the Collaborate.org launch at FiRe, a way for people to create their own “project pages” where they can invite others to collaborate on specific things. These pages can include group calendars, videos, blogs, task lists, etc. Collaborate.org combines advanced GIS capabilities and access to real-time live data from around the world. It has an intuitive interface that allows the user to easily navigate diverse data sets simultaneously and display the results in meaningful ways.
Founder and CEO of Intelesense Technologies, Kevin Montgomery, received the FiRe 2013 Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Lastly, we would like to share some photos from our friends at SNS. What will be our favorite snapshot this week is Sharon Anderson Morris, Programs Director for Strategic News Service and FiReFilms, together with Vint Cerf, Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist and one of the founding father’s of the internet, wearing Google Glass.
We are extremely proud to be named a FiRestarter!
