Event Keynote Address: Event Keynote Address: Clues to the Future that Hide in the Present
Presenter: Eric Haseltine, Haseltine Partners, LLC

Events Center

Erik Haseltine Eric C. Haseltine, President and Managing Director of Haseltine Partners, LLC, develops far-sighted technological solutions delivering near-term value while focusing on how the human brain naturally wants to interact with technology to improve performance. He has held positions as Director of Engineering at Hughes Aircraft, Executive Vice-President of Walt Disney Imagineering, Associate Director for Science and Technology (CTO) in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the Director of Research in the National Security Agency.

Mr. Haseltine holds 15 patents in optics and in special effects and electronic media, and has authored over 100 publications in science and technical journals, on the web and in Discover Magazine. He is a leading authority on managing digital rights and protecting intellectual property.

Holding degrees in economics and psychology, as well as a Ph.D. in Physiological Psychology, Mr. Haseltine, in his own words, "... extrapolates human nature where it intersects technology in the future. That intersection is where the opportunities and necessities are."

In this presentation, Dr. Haseltine will provide a glimpse into the future, describing how advances in technology will provide exciting growth opportunities for Rapid Response Monitoring and our Dealers. Eric's talk will begin with forecasts of key technologies including sensors, computers, power systems, algorithms and networks, then describe how these advances could dramatically affect your business. For example, the volume, variety and velocity of data flowing in from monitored sites is likely to grow exponentially over the next ten years, as inexpensive networked sensors proliferate, and communications systems, such as M2M wireless data channels rapidly expand. Similarly, advances in machine vision, pattern recognition, and data mining will create opportunities for exploiting the fast growing flood of information, to help Rapid Response provide dealers novel, value added services such as failure analysis and prediction. The talk will conclude with a discussion, based on Haseltine's experience managing R&D at Hughes Aircraft, Walt Disney and NSA, of best-of-class R&D processes that Rapid Response and our dealers can employ to fully capture the opportunities that technology will create.
