There is a lot of great technology being created and developed everyday. This session provides an overview of some of the "hot-topics" within the emerging tech field, what trends to watch, and what can libraries do with these emerging technologies. We will uncover everything from where touch-based computing and gesture-based computing. Most importantly, we can uncover ways libraries can create new technology, driving down our own technology costs and increasing overall benefits for our libraries.

  • EmergingTechnologiesBy Brian Pichman of theEvolve ProjectILEAD USA, June 18th 2013
  • Technology As An Evolution 1990 – 2000: Internet Burst 2000 – 2010: Value Adds to Technology 2010 – 2020: Technology Burst
  • Future of Technology To discover and curate information Value adds (efficiency, reliability) To build or discover new “things”
  • Future of SearchHas ChangedSearches based off of visualsinstead of keywordsClicking Images rather thanentering in words
  • General Themes Touch-Based Gesture-Based Object Orientated Mobility/Connectivity Open Source Hardware
  • Touch Based People want to touch everything Discover Through Touch Search Through Touch Learn Through Touch
  • Gesture Based Communicate with Technology HandsFree Uses multiple cameras to detectdepth/movement Microsoft Kinect Sites to Explore: Microsoft Kinect PrimeSense Evoluce
  • Wearable Gesture BasedComputing
  • Object Orientated Use Objects to interact with surfaces
  • Have You Considered… People are more mobile / moreconnected than ever before Social Networks Email SMS (Texting ;) ) How does this translate to libraries? Constant Connection to Information andDatabases
  • Back To Searching Technology is becoming more “visual”orientated Whether it be from touch, gesture, orobjects Search Dynamics are changing
  • Gamification
  • Interactive Library Cards Put a “Reward System” into the library card Badges Prizes Exclusive Programming / Event registration Low Tech: Print new more colorful library cards, allow patrons tocustomize their card with different and increasingly moredesired badges – based off books read, programsattended, etc. High Tech: Create Library Cards with screens Send Messages to card when they are in the library(wirelessly connected) Display “reading level” or “badges they own”
  • Libraries Can Do This Too We are in a time of new inventions andgreat technological achievements Put together groups to build newideas, concepts, and technology Open Source Hardware / Software Build New Staff Transform the way you work, play, andcollaborate.
  • Future Concepts People watching TV can point and clickto buy content (clothes, cars, etc) Predictive searches (Amazon does it now)
  • Places to Watch Mashable Engadget TED Talks ( Crowd Funding Sites (ex Kickstarter) CES (Consumer Electronics Show)
  • What Things Do You See?
