Wondering how new technologies like 3D printing, Internet of Things, Wearable Tech, and Unmanned Civilian Vehicles will affect you? Read on!

The Cambridge Science Festival is coming! For 10 days, April 17 to 26, 2015, the city and surrounding area will be filled with more than 160 events showcasing the leading edge in science, technology, engineering and math. A multifaceted, multicultural occurrence every spring, the Cambridge Science Festival makes science accessible, interactive and fun! There are events for adults, teens, and families with kids.

The Greater Boston Chapter of ACM is proud to be a part of the Festival. We are producing a presentation which will explore some of the latest headline­-grabbing technology trends. Our speaker, Greg Page, will describe and de­mystify 9 areas of technology that are changing everyone's life: 3D printing, Internet of Things, Wearable Tech, IPv6, Bitcoin, NFC, Cloud Computing, Ephemeral Communication Apps, and Unmanned Civilian Vehicles. He explains the meaning behind the related buzzwords, and the impact of each of these emerging tech fields for individuals, small businesses, and society in general.

We plan to provide some light refreshments before and after the talk, so please RSVP so we can plan appropriate quantities.

Sponsored by Greater Boston Chapter ACM and Merrimack Analysis Group.
