Description: Ever wonder where different forms of technology come from? Where they originate? Chances are, you can trace many examples back to the IEEE. And helping incubate these society- and life-changing concepts is Dr. Bill Tonti, senior director for IEEE Future Directions. While personally holding ownership to more than 280 U.S. patents, Dr. Tonti helps foster new initiatives that represent various technologies and motivates IEEE and the general public to engage with these programs. Today there are various IEEE Future Directions initiatives, including programs revolving around big data, the brain, cybersecurity, digital senses, green ICT, rebooting computing smart cities, smart materials, software defined networks and 5G. Many of these initiatives were spotlighted at the October 2016 IEEE Technology Time Machine symposium in San Diego. Through our interview with Dr. Tonti, a passageway to a bright and exhilarating technological future was unveiled.

Future technology, paradigm shifts, IEEE TTM reactions and outlook Episode 1: Q&A with Mary Ward-Callan, Managing Director, IEEE Technical Activities

Description: The IEEE Technology Time Machine (TTM) symposium brings together industry leaders, top executives, government officials, scientific innovators, and more to discuss future technology directions. Among the turning-point IEEE TTM gatherings, the October 2016 symposium in San Diego promoted the “Making the Future” theme and invited renowned experts in their fields of research and industry. Attending IEEE TTM was Mary Ward-Callan, the managing director for IEEE Technical Activities–an initiative to foster the development and facilitate the exchange of scientific and technological knowledge. In our first IEEE TTM podcast interview, Mary Ward-Callan reviews the social, cultural, political and ethical issues that commonly emerge when innovation alters perception. Her experience at IEEE TTM illuminated her desire for a functional, realistic and safe automated world.
