Intel Developer Forum

There is not one mobile future, but 7 billion futures, said Intel Fellow and anthropologist Dr. Genevieve Bell at the Intel Developer Forum today. Describing how the human being has always been, and will continue to be, the ultimate mobile platform, Bell illustrated how mobile technology has historically been used to extend our bodies and physical reach, augment our deficiencies and increase our capacity to get things done.

“Mobility technology has been transforming human society for centuries. Its future will be influenced not only by the shrinking size of computing technology due to Moore’s Law, but also by global population growth, “Bell said.“ Our inspiration should come not only from the invention of new technology ingredients, but also from the needs and desires of human beings. It’s not one future we are shaping – it’s 7 billion futures, and counting."
