Welcome to the Portland Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM)
Join SIM, IEEE, ISACA, ISSA, and TAO March 12th for our 2014 Joint Meeting:
Future of Computing
In his fast-moving talk, Steve will discuss how Intel visions the future, and will then review three major trends in computing (big, small, and natural) and how they will and are affecting a variety of industries including retail, healthcare, entertainment, and transportation. Using strong visuals, videos, and compelling stories of the future, Steve will help the audience gain a solid understanding of where computing is going, and the opportunities and threats it will offer their businesses in the coming decade.
Steve Brown, Intel Futurist
As an Intel futurist,
Steve is responsible for building and articulating a clear vision for
the future of computing and the exciting experiences that it will enable
in the next decade and beyond. He consults industry experts and
synthesizes social, technological, demographic, market, economic and
business trends to understand how technology will shape the future of
major vertical industries. These include retail, healthcare,
manufacturing, entertainment, and transportation. Steve then engages
people in a positive, actionable conversation about the future we want
to build. He brings Intel’s vision to life by talking at public events
and consulting for clients on the profound impact computing will have on
our lives in 2020 and beyond.
Steve is senior technologist working
within Intel Labs, a small army of researchers that are busy shaping the
future of everything from robotics, to security, to wearable computing.
Steve joined Intel in 1989 and holds bachelors and masters degrees in Microelectronic Systems Engineering from Manchester University. He has broad experience spanning engineering, business, sales, marketing, manufacturing, and communications. Steve was born in Britain, became a US citizen in 2008, and lives in downtown Portland, Oregon.
