Over the past century, civilization has shifted from a scarcity of information to an overabundance of data. New immersive and ambient interfaces, backed by rapidly evolving intelligent information systems, are enabling new forms of collaborative sensemaking, creating new relationships between our data, ourselves and our world. Toshi Anders Hoo, director of the Emerging Media Lab at the Institute for the Future, explains how, just as previous generations have been shaped by the technologies of their times, we will soon be having conversations, shared ideas, and experiences not possible before, and we will be doing it together – inside of our data. Using virtual reality and augmented reality technologies on stage, Hoo will demonstrate how we will soon have access to simulation technologies that will allow anyone to capture, design, inhabit, and share complex data-driven models of the world, both as it already exists, and as it could be – and how this will change the game for data center operations.
