Conrad Wolfram, a technologist and businessman discusses how computation will soon be democratized in this computing keynote. As he explains, the Internet and digital age has ushered in an information overload (prior to this, there was a complete knowledge deficit). While we used to not be able to access the information we needed, we presently cannot pick out the particular information we need. From weather forecasts to personal financing, there is a constant flow of information that many find overwhelming.
However, because of things like automation and crowdsourced filtering software, computing is no longer something that can only be understood by experts and analysts. Wolfram’s computing keynote demonstrates how the web’s overwhelming amount of information can now be sorted by the masses.
