Top 10 people you may follow 10. Rob Enderle (Analyst, Enderle Group): Rob is renowned for looking at the tech world with a discerning, critical eye; fortunately, hes brought that same perspective to Twitter and successfully deployed it in 140-character chunks 9. Paul Thurrott (Founder, Windows Supersite): Terrific source for information on the Microsoft product ecosystem; not afraid to tell you when he loves something or hates it; uses Twitter to share both news and tips 8. Jeremiah Owyang (Analyst, Forrester Research): Focuses on communication and how technology is revolutionizing it in all its forms, even focuses on Twitter itself; his blog post on how he uses Twitter is an excellent starting point for those who want to learn how to be useful on Twitter 7. Lance Ulanoff (Editor in Chief of PCMag): Excellent source of links, quick news hits, and instant analysis on lots of general tech topics 6. Charlene Li (Author and thought leader): Provides big picture perspectives on emerging technologies, social networking, and the overall direction of the technology world </li> <li> 6. Continued:Top 10 People to follow 5. Jason Snell (Editorial Director of Macworld): Best Twitter source for fair-minded information about Apple and its galaxy of products 4. Rafe Needleman (Editor of Webware): For Web 2.0, cloud computing, and Silicon Valley startup information, Rafe has it covered; doesnt post as often as some of others on this list but nearly everything he does post is worthwhile 3. Dave Zatz (Digital lifestyle writer): Great perspectives on gadgets and digital lifestyle technologies; Twitter has a lot of big-name gadget writers but none of them post as much relevant content on Twitter as Dave 2. Padmasree Warrior (CTO at Cisco Systems): The highest ranking tech executive youll find on Twitter (who actually posts useful stuff); offers an inside look at a high-ranking IT executive and she regularly shares astute observations about the direction of tech, the economy, and the world at large 1. Harry McCracken (Editor of Technologizer): Former PC World editor has rapidlyand successfully refashioned himself as a Web journalist; he writes early and often on a wide variety of tech subjects and no techie on Twitter has a better wheat-to-chaff ratio than Harry. Thats why he made No. 1. </li> <li> 7. Emotional,Intelligent and Multi-talented bots </li> <li> 8. Cirruculum and Technology <ul><li>Affordable bit-mapped displays brought GUI interfaces into widespread use, gave us the new field of human-computer interaction, and led CS departments to introduce courses in computer graphics and HCI. </li></ul><ul><li>The maturation of networking technology that led to the Internet and the Web also spawned a whole spectrum of new courses, from the nuts and bolts of network protocols to the social impacts of online communities </li></ul><ul><li>Advances in sensing,actuator, and power technologies are fueling an explosion in robotics comparable to what microprocessors did for computing three decades ago. </li></ul></li> <li> 9. Robotics Now <ul><li>Comparing todays state-of-the-art industrial robotspriced at tens to hundreds of thousands of dollarsto 1970s era mainframes, while consumer robots resemble 1970s microcomputers: crude, underpowered,and of interest mainly to hobbyists who enjoy tinkering with technology for its own sake. </li></ul><ul><li>Todays consumer robots include a variety of kits (Lego Mindstorms, VEX Pro etc.), limited but intriguing toys (Wow- ees Robosapien, many more in Japan), and one astonishingly successful vacuum cleaner: the Roomba; more than five million Roombas have been sold. </li></ul><ul><li>More recent examples include a Python-based programming course using the Parallax Scribbler,1 and a variant of Alice ( that can simulate an iRobot Create. </li></ul></li> <li> 10. What is expected from us <ul><li>Machine vision,probablistic localization and navigation,kinematics calculations,grsash path planning,multi-robot coordination and human robot interaction. </li></ul><ul><li>Real Robotics involves deep,computationally demanding algorithms. </li></ul><ul><li>Who in 1971 would have loked at the first intel microprocessor and predicted eBay,wikipedia.Google Earth or Facebook. </li></ul><ul><li>Future of Robotics is accelerated by development in computer graphics.Graphics specialities include web design,game design and graphical presentation of information or GPU programming. </li></ul><ul><li>Better algorithms for perception and manipulation and high-level frameworks for robot instruction will enable robotics application development. </li></ul></li> <li> 11. Future of Mobile Gaming <ul><li>The first game that was pre-installed onto a mobile phone was Snake on selected Nokia models in 1997 </li></ul><ul><li>Nokia tried to create its own mobile gaming platform with the N-Gage in 2003 but this effort failed mainly because, at the time, the convergence of a cell phone and a handheld gaming platform did not mix. </li></ul><ul><li>Today, cell phone games have come a very long way. Their graphics are about the same as you would expect on a 4th or 5th generation game console (which may not seem like a very big improvement yet is considered one because the game is being played on a cell phone). </li></ul><ul><li>Cell phone games now tend to take up a large amount of memory on cell phones, which is part of the reason why they still are not too popular. Still, certain games such as "Tetris" and "Solitaire" are somewhat popular cell phone games. </li></ul><ul><li>A Multiplayer mobile game is often a re-branding of a multiplayer game for the PC or Console. Most mobile games are single player mobile games perhaps with artificially intelligent opponents. Multiplayer functionality is achieved through: </li></ul><ul><li>Infrared </li></ul><ul><li>Bluetooth </li></ul><ul><li>GPRS </li></ul><ul><li>3G </li></ul><ul><li>Wi-Fi </li></ul><ul><li>AI </li></ul><ul><li>MMS </li></ul><ul><li>Wireless LAN </li></ul></li> <li> 12. Passion Continues </li> <li> 13. Future of Programming </li> <li> 14. Future of Programming <ul><li>Programming -set of expressions to solve a task </li></ul><ul><li>Algorithm- a technique/method to solve a problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Cobol (1959)-&gt;Basic (1964)-&gt;Fortran 66(1966)-&gt;LOGO(1968)-&gt;GW-Basic (1983)-&gt;C(1980)-&gt;C++(1983)-&gt;Java 1995-&gt;Go (2009) by Google. </li></ul><ul><li>We are moving towards parallel programming. </li></ul><ul><li>CUDA in demand. </li></ul><ul><li>All the programs have to be coded again ??YES!! </li></ul></li> <li> 15. What is the future?? <ul><li>Python people say Python is a high level language, C and C++ are low level languages.?? </li></ul><ul><li>CUDA(Compute Unified Device Architecture),NVIDIA people say We are the future?? </li></ul><ul><li>Algorithm is the future?? </li></ul><ul><li>Parallel Algorithm? </li></ul></li> <li> 16. Tim Berners-Lee calls for free internet worldwide <ul><li>The inventor of the Web has called for everyone to have access to his creation for free. </li></ul><ul><li>Tim Berners-Lee said that he would like to see everybody given a low-bandwidth connection "by default". </li></ul><ul><li>Currently, he said, just one-fifth of the world's population has access to the web. </li></ul><ul><li>"I would like to see people enrolled in a cheap data plan by default. I would like them to get it for free." </li></ul><ul><li>"I initially assumed you should get them water first, you should get them healthcare and then it is the luxury of getting the web," he said. </li></ul><ul><li>"Not being a part of the information society is a really important thing." </li></ul><ul><li>Sir Tim also used his speech to outline his stance on other concerns he has about the future of the web including privacy and net neutrality, the principle that ensures that all web traffic is treated equally regardless of the type or origin. </li></ul><ul><li>"Of course a lot of companies would like to limit the pages you get." </li></ul><ul><li>"The moment you let that net neutrality go, think what you lose: you lose the web as it is, that you can click on a link and go anywhere." </li></ul></li> <li> 17.
