What changes can we expect to come about in the relationship between humans and large data repositories? How will intelligent environments influence our access to information? Is there really a clear boundary between the artificial and the real? And finally, how will the latest innovations in Information Technology come together to help us turn information into knowledge that is useful and meaningful?
These questions will be answered by top global scientists and visionaries in technology, design, economics and science. They will present solutions and strategies that will profoundly change our access to and use of knowledge in the future by providing simpler, faster and more effective techniques.
