The Future of the Web: and how to prepare for it now

Tuesday, 16th – 14:00

“We're still in the first minutes of the first day of the Internet revolution.”

– Scott Cook, founder of Intuit

Do you remember your first moment on the web?

The Internet, as we know it, is under 8500 days old. Yet, in under 8500 days it has revolutionized the way the world lives, works and plays. What do the next 8500 days have in store?

Peter Smart, Global Director of User Experience at Fantasy Interactive, will offer insights into some of the most astonishing and magical developments at the frontiers of our industry. Together, we’ll explore how breakthroughs at the edge of technology, science and design will transform the way the web affects our daily lives – from invisible interfaces, touchable websites and adaptive ecosystems.

Drawing on leading research, experiments and developments across our industry, join us on a tour of the next 8500 days on the web – and how we, as web professionals, can prepare for them today.
