QSTP TECHtalks takes a fresh look into the crystal ball of wireless technology
Why is it 2007 and we still can't get onto the Internet anywhere, anytime, on any device? When are "convergence", "3G" and "mobile TV" going to stop being buzzwords and start being tools we use every day? These are questions that Qatar Science & Technology Park will pose at its next TECHtalk, a networking event on technology-based business.
The guest speaker at the event, titled “Wireless technology: A fresh look into the crystal ball”, will be Dr. Adnan Abu-Dayya. He has a firm grasp on the crystal ball as chairman and associate professor of electrical engineering at Qatar University, and having spent much of the past decade in charge of emerging technologies at AT&T Wireless. Adnan’s talk will focus on his predictions for our wireless future, and some learning experiences from the past.
The TECHtalk will be held on Sunday 4th November from 7:00 - 9:00pm at the Diplomatic Club.. Members of the public can attend for free by registering at www.qstp.org.qa.
Qatar Science & Technology Park fosters the development and commercialisation of technology in Qatar, a rising star in the Arabian Gulf with the world’s third largest gas reserves and a remarkable vision for human development. As part of the renowned Qatar Foundation, founded by the country’s Emir, the science park is co-located with campuses of Carnegie Mellon, Texas A&M, Weill Cornell and other premier universities. It provides research-friendly premises for companies from around the world, plus an incubator and investment for technology start-ups. Already EADS, ExxonMobil, GE, Microsoft, Rolls-Royce, Shell and Total have joined Qatar Science & Technology Park, and its first phase of buildings opens late 2007.
