e3 Systems reports on Future of Technology Seminar (25 April 2013)

e3 Systems hosted a seminar just before the beginning of the Antibes Yacht Show last week at the Automobile Club de Monaco. The keynote presentation was given by Dr. Waguih Ishak from Corning Glass who wowed the audience with Corning’s vision of how our lives will shortly be transformed and governed by interactive glass. Dr Ishak also gave a fascinating insight into how research and development is conducted in Silicon Valley, home to Corning and many other high tech companies. The region acts as an incubator for much of the technology we now live with and also for that of the future.
Delegates included yacht designers, representatives from shipyards, yacht fleet managers, technical managers, captains and ETOS. Other complementary presentations were given by speakers from Global IP, Van Berge Henegouwen, Monaco Telecom and e3 Systems. The emphasis was firmly on “Future Technology for Yachts” and there was much discussion on the needs of today’s “connected” society and how this impacts upon life aboard a yacht – both for owners and crew. There was also a lot of debate about the fast changing nature of communications and entertainment systems on-board. (e3 Systems Press release, 25 April 2013)
