The first Annual Foresight Lecture was given by Jon Bruner on the 5th May 2015 at Loughborough University

"a return to atoms: why technology's future is in physical devices"



 Presenter: Jon Bruner

 Jon Bruner discussed the emergence of Silicon Valley's current obsession with hardware and the Internet of  Things, and recent technological and business changes that have made these areas much  easier to work with.



Jon Bruner is co-chair of the O'Reilly Solid conference, focused on the intersection between software  and the physical world, and he oversees O'Reilly's publications on hardware, the Internet of Things,  manufacturing, and electronics. Before coming to O'Reilly, he was data editor at Forbes Magazine,  where he combined writing and programming to approach a broad variety of subjects, from the  operation of the Columbia River's dams to migration within the United States. He lives in San  Francisco and can occasionally be found at the console of a pipe organ.
