Conventional telecoms is obsolete
In about 20 years, conventional telecommunications will cease to exist and ambient intelligence will take its place.
This is the prediction of British Telecoms (BT) futurist Ian Pearson, addressing the Futurex 2005 conference in Sandton via a live satellite link last week.
Pearson said the next global IT buzzword would be NBIC (nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science) convergence, which essentially means ICT will be seamlessly integrated into everything around us.
