K01.26 Opening Keynote
'Development Next – And Now For Something Completely Different?'

The future of technology is racing towards us with new platforms, languages, tools, paradigms, practices, databases, hardware and frameworks … all to be applied to new products and applications. Given all these new technologies are almost here we speculate on the potential nature of software development in the latter part of the decade. Will our sacred rituals of Sequential Programs, Tables, Objects, Patterns, Tags and Agile be legacy or still the way for software professionals? How should we expand our reach - what skills, practices, languages, platforms will be important? Will we be eaten by the complexity dragon or slay it with some essential simplicity that allows faster, cheaper, better software development and delivery?

Dave is founder and CEO of Bedarra Corporation; which provides virtual CTO and CEO, business mentoring and seed investment to emerging companies. Recently formed Bedarra Research Labs undertakes speculative research on applications of...

'IBM Watson since Jeopardy!'

In February 2011, IBM demonstrated it's latest Research breakthroughs in natural language processing and deep question answering.

'Building Scalable, Highly Concurrent and Fault-Tolerant Systems: Lessons Learned'

The skills of building Scalable, Highly Concurrent and Fault-Tolerant Systems are becoming increasingly important in our new world of Cloud Computing, multi-core processors, Big Data and Real-Time Web. Unfortunately, many people are still doing it wrong; using the wrong tools, techniques, habits and ideas. In this talk we will look at some of the most common (and some not so common but superior) practices; what works - what doesn't work - and why.

'Agile Chartering: Energize Every Project Liftoff

As the first act of the flight, a rocket launch requires an entire set of systems to successfully lift the vehicle into orbit – not just the vehicle itself, but all the systems needed for smoothly moving off the ground into space. Likewise, your project team needs its entire set of supporting systems in place to begin a successful journey to effective teamwork, high performance, and high value delivery. Liftoff – it's the unexplored, often ignored, Agile software development project practice. 

Diana Larsen partners with clients in the software industry to create, guide, and fortify resilient workplaces and improve project performance. In addition to consulting with and coaching leaders and teams on adopting Agile work systems, she draws on 20+ years of working with technical professionals to...

K05.28 Closing Keynote
'Stay Human - on the future of men and robots'

Our technological future hold so much promise - and it poses so many threats to life as we know it. This ambivalent relation to technology has become a central part of human thinking in the past decades, and has become a key issue in our efforts to define humanity, as technological advances accelerate around us. Nowhere do our hopes and fears of future development appear stronger than in the meeting with the technology that looks like us: The android. By using his own lifelike android as point of departure, Professor Scharfe explores how new technologies may cause us to think differently about our future - and about ourselves.

Prof. Dr. Henrik Schärfe (1968) is PhD and Professor of Information Science, Department of Communication, Aalborg University (AAU), Denmark. According to Time Magazine, Prof. Dr. Henrik Schärfe is one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World...
