His current research focuses on the evolution of sociotechnical systems and collaborative work practices, digital convergence and the evolving roles of information professionals, and involving users in the co-construction of digital knowledge.About the Talk:New advances in ubiquitous computing technologies have revolutionized the ability of museums and other cultural heritage organizations to interact with their visitors. Anytime, anywhere access to digital information resources offers new avenues for building stronger relationships and provides unprecedented opportunities for learning and exploration, in the museum and online. These changes have profoundly affected how individuals interact with digital and physical museum resources, and museum professionals have responded to these developments by shifting from a focus on the role of the visitor in the life of the museum, to the role of the museum in the life of the visitor. This talk explores how mobile computing and augmented reality technologies are changing the way we interact with 21st century museums in our everyday lives, and examines what the future holds for museums and their visitors.About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
