June 27, 2016 ALCTS President's Program: The Future of the Internet and the 'Cloud of Things'

Dr. Michael R. Nelson is the featured speaker at the ALCTS President's Program at the 2016 ALA Annual Conference in Orlando. As new tools and business models emerge over the next decade, cloud technology combined with broadband wireless, sensors, Big Data and machine learning will transform how we interact with information and will fundamentally change the way we interact with the world and each other.

Please join us for this intriguing President's Program that will examine principles (open standards, the free flow of information, transparency and empowering users) which will allow these impending technology changes to benefit people around the globe.  Join ALCTS President Norm Medeiros, Haverford College, and ALCTS President's Program Chair October Ivins, Ivins eContent Solutions, for this exploration of future developments and consideration of how they may impact library services and programs.

This session will be held Monday, June 27, 2016 10:30 am to 12:00 pm in the Orange County Convention Center, Room W304 A-D.
