An Interview with Ubicomp Pioneer Norbert Streitz
January-March 2012 (vol. 11 no. 1)
pp. 62-66
Norbert Streitz, Scientific Director of the Smart Future Initiative, was one of the early pioneers of ubiquitous computing in Europe. Nigel Davies interviews Streitz about technology's evolution and the significance of Weiser's vision today, his work on the Disappearing Computing Initiative, and his prediction of where we'll be 20 years from now.
