You are the greatest information system that you will manage, own, or work with. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) entered the cultural lexicon of knowledge work sometime in the 2000s. While most pundits will give you hours of debate on BYOD, it's pointless babble. BYOD was the cultural canary in the digital coal mine. Today, in 2013, wearable computing is invading the workplace. Google Glass, Health Sensors, and every form of ambient, calm computing you can think of. Our cubes are surveillance work spaces both from above and from "within". As we move quickly through wearable devices to a future of imperceptible devices, how do we create the greatest value for our organization given the way data affects our personal lives and culture? We will answer the following in this session: 1. What is a wearable and how will wearables transition to Imperceptibles? 2. How to use responsible bi-directional surveillance in the workplace? 3. Use cases for wearable computing in knowledge work
