Only a few years ago, we didn't even imagine where the web was going. At some point it became more clear, but it was still a thing that we mainly dreamt of. Now that we have finally reached the future, it's great to see the possibilities that are right at out finger tips. Using the latest technologies eventually enables us to provide better and more personalized services, remove unnecessary clutter and improve our users experiences. Meet contextual awareness.
Contextually Aware Apps by Ilya Belikin (https://twitter.com/ihrd)
The mobile world changed how we interact with information. We shift to shorter interactions, but within a much better defined context. Knowing the physical location of the user and what is happening right now is the core of a great app. Contextual awareness is becoming more and more important and it's enabling new business models.
In this talk I will explore in depth the general concept and technologies which are available today and show examples of their usage. We will talk about maps, smart spaces, indoor navigation, beacons, slam, magnetic data and vision. The material came from my own ongoing endeavours to build a great contextually aware App.
