Future tech, IoT, mobile, computing, innovation Episode 4: Q&A with Alicia Abella, Assistant VP at AT&T

Description: Picture the year 2030. What do you see? We asked Dr. Alicia Abella, Assistant Vice President of Inventive Science at AT&T Labs and a true leader for women in STEM, to share her vision on the future of technology, where we have been, where we are going, and why, in this Technology Time Machine podcast. As a subject matter expert in cloud computing, distributed storage, distributed software systems, mobile services, the Internet of Things, and much more, Dr. Abella believes that for us to be truly innovative and make changes in the world of technology, each of these domains must learn to work together. However, before these innovations can lead to a technology rich future, society must be willing to adopt new and changing technology. Through our interview with Dr. Abella, a true expert in her many fields, great insight into achieving a technology rich future was revealed.

Future tech, IEEE, women in tech, space travel, healthcare, robotics Episode 3: Q&A with Karen Bartleson, President and CEO, IEEE

Description: IEEE President, Karen Bartleson, sat down with us to discuss the future of technology and where she sees the world in twenty-five years. Karen has made a tremendous impact on the technology industry and leads the entire IEEE organization with passion and zeal – bringing new light to the various engineering fields and industries the organization represents all while paving a bright future for women in tech. Needless to say, Karen is the perfect person to discuss the future of technology during this Technology Time Machine podcast. Among many other topics, Karen shares her vision of technology advancing space travel, healthcare, and even cyborgs in the near and distant future. However, with the advancement of technology comes the need for discussion on the ethics associated with artificial intelligence. How do we approach ethics and built-in biases that might come with the advancement of these machines? This is just the question that the IEEE, and Karen, are addressing; truly working towards IEEE’s mission of Advancing Technology for the Benefit of Humanity.
