Context-aware Intelligent Assistant Software Systems & the Internet

On Wednesday, 11 November 2015, Rao Machiraju of reQall Inc. will discuss “Context-aware Intelligent Assistant Software Systems & the Internet”.


The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was an early packet switching network and the first network to implement the protocol suite TCP/IP.   First demonstration of packet switching was in August 1968. ​​WWW and Internet followed and we deem it to be a pervasive phenomenon.

This talk is about the possibilities of Internet of Things and context awareness that is brought about by billions of sensors and the technology disruption that is poised to happen that is going to change our practices in production, consumption and commerce.  Specifically, we will walk thru use cases in automobile, health and food applications
