    CHIFOO: Location as an invisible interface ($5 for non-members)

    Location as an invisible interface

    Amber will be presenting an information-packed speech on her experiences with geolocation, GPS, location triggers, and non-visual augmented reality. Amber will cover the current players in the geolocation market, the location market itself, and why location is such a big deal. Topics such as real-time location sharing, geolocation triggers, geonotes, proximal notification and automatic checkins, and privacy and security will be discussed.

    About the Speaker Amber Case is a cyborg anthropologist and user experience designer who focuses on mobile software, augmented reality and data visualization, and reducing the amount of time and space it takes for people to connect. Amber has been featured in Forbes, WIRED, and Time, and also founded Geoloqi.com, a private location sharing application, out of a frustration with existing social protocols around text messaging and wayfinding. Amber has spoken at conferences all around the world, including TED, and was featured in Fast Company 2010 as one of the Most Influential Women in Technology.
