The Emerging Technology SIG examines specific new technologies and applications, as well as technology trends and opportunities across markets and industries. We don't mind if a technology has one foot in the lab; we do avoid those that are "established" in any sense of the word.
Recent talks have included indoor 3D mapping, improved internet protocols, emerging directions in programming languages, crowdsourced image processing, and cargo control in seaports. Since almost every technology contains some software, we range widely and fearlessly :)
Emerging Technology SIGs are free for SVForum members, and non-members who register in advance.
We meet the 4th Wednesday of every month. Please join us!

It's not Emerging Technology per se, but if you're interested in the technology that's emerged as being game-changing, you're signed up for this Thursday's Game Changing Technology Conference in Mtn View, right?
Tuesday, April 30 - 3D Printing and Scanning SIG: What PARC is Doing with 3D Printing Technologies
3333 Coyote Hill Rd., Palo Alto
No cost for members and non-members who register in advance
Our April 11 speaker Chris Larsen, "Open Source Cash", showed us in attendance a video they'd just completed for their developer community that wasn't even posted yet. The topic was the approach and algorithms they've taken to ensure every transaction is recorded - in a system of highly distributed ledgers - that they call Consensus.
Chris just sent us a link to the video.
