The Forum on Emerging Technologies – What’s on the Horizon?
Monday, April 30 • 9:00 am–11:45 am
Organizer: Chris Dayton, Director – Fats and Oils Processing, Bunge Global Innovation, USA
We have experienced dramatic changes in the last few years. Some of us remember the ‘60s television show depicting the 23rd century adventures of starship USS Enterprise, Star Trek. The actors used handheld devices for sensing, data analysis, and data recording, better known as a Tricorder. In the 21st century we have the Tricorder! It’s called a Smartphone or the later version from Star Trek: The Next Generation the smartpad. Why were devices created? The need and ability to instantly acquire, analyze, and record data in real time.
The presentations in this session demonstrated the ability to obtain, analyze, record, and interact with both the process and the business needs for real time data using spectral techniques traditionally used in the laboratory.
