COFES 2014: George Dyson to Keynote

COFES 2014 - Keynote
-- At annual design and engineering software event, science historian
George Dyson explores technology predictions from a historical perspective --

BETHESDA, MD, December 17, 2013 —Cyon Research announced today that George Dyson will give the keynote addresses at COFES 2014: The Congress on the Future of Engineering Software, which will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona from April 24-27.
 
Keynotes at COFES will focus on this year’s theme for COFES 2014: “Correcting 2020 Vision.” With 2020 just six years ahead, what corrections does a firm need to make to its own vision to get a crisper view of 2020?
 
Dyson addresses the theme looking backward at historical precedent in his keynote, “ 2020 Vision: Why the Technology of Prediction keeps getting better while the Prediction of Technology lags behind.” His keynote will explore insights drawn from historical attempts at predicting where technology will be at some future point in time.

“We’re quite excited to have George for COFES 2014,” said Brad Holtz, president & CEO of Cyon Research. “As an acclaimed historian of technology, his vision will help COFES participants get a much more likely understanding of how to think about their longer-term planning.”

Dyson is an author and science historian. His writings detail the history of computing, the development of algorithms and intelligence, communication systems, space exploration, and the design of water craft. As a popular lecturer, Dyson provides a historical context to the evolution of technology and thought-provoking ideas on the future direction of technology and the Internet. His most recent book, “Turing’s Cathedral” is a masterful look at the dawn of computers, illuminates the people, machines, and codes behind the transition from numbers that mean things to numbers that do things in the aftermath of World War II.
