The Sensing Landscape



What are we sensing? What can we sense? How should we sense?



Where is innovation taking place? Where are the convergences?

Beyond the Technology: The Business of Sensing



Who is investing?



What unusual patterns of research
and funding are out there and how
might they be monitored to "sense" Dr. Evils?



What is the value of gaming?



Must international law be amended to support the business of sensing?
