Marc Wallace , Radius Networks
Proximity Beacon Solutions
Over the past two years, proximity beacon projects have evolved from back-of-napkin sketches to limited proofs-of-concept to massive, global projects for the world’s biggest brands. Marc Wallace and his team at Radius Networks work with large brands across retail, restaurants, hospitality, sports teams and health care to help them engage with customers, streamline processes and collect location-based data. Marc will provide an overview of what’s happening in various market segments, explore the unique role of digital agencies in this space and give a preview of things to expect in the not-too-distant future.
Scott M. Cullum , AKQA
The promise of a voice controlled world has been reserved for science fiction movies. And rightfully so, as the technology has never quite lived up to user expectation. Products like Siri, Cortana, Google Now, and Echo all aim at the same target of creating a conversational personal assistant. AKQA’s Director of Creative Development, Scott M. Cullum, will examine the consumer focused ecosystem to see where expectation meets reality.
Chris Springer , AKQA
Ego vs. API
Every developer faces an internal tension when approaching a new project: they must balance their own ego and desire to utilize exciting new technologies against architectural constraints and externalities. This conflict is especially salient when trying to create or mock an API, amidst the landscape of multiplying services and tools. Join AKQA Creative Developer Chris Springer as he shares various approaches from past project experiences and highlights tools and technologies for efficiently achieving the best possible outcome.
