For many decades, we thought our future would be full of useful gadgets that would make our lives easier, without necessarily changing how we lived. Now we know that electronic devices—large or small—are changing how we work and how we play. Central to this transformation is how we engage with these devices.

On June 15, experts from TI and Arrow will discuss the role natural user interfaces (NUI) play in transforming markets and enhancing user engagement. This session will cover:

  • Market trends driving NUI evolutions
  • Technology trends driving NUI innovations
  • TI Embedded Processors for different NUI needs

This 90 minute session will showcase TI’s Sitara™ ARM® microprocessors and complementary system components utilized in end equipments that are defining the future of human machine interfaces.
