  32. 32. UVS - Robotics “Smart Machines” This era will be the most disruptive in the history of IT by the proliferation of: contextually aware, intelligent personal assistants (voice/brain-wave driven) smart advisors (e.g., IBM Watson) advanced global industrial systems autonomous vehicles 32
  33. 33. Augmented Reality What is reality? Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. Albert Einstein The Real World as an Operating System The future of computing 33
  34. 34. GIS – Geography “The Science of Where” • It all happens somewhere. • The n-dimensional spatial domain is a topologically and geometrically integrating and convergent domain. The “ultimate container”. Say what!? • Where you are affects where you are… and where you will be: law of gravity. 34
