In parallel, we are seeing a rise in the use of telepresence and robotics for collaboration and communication -- again fueled by dropping costs and ubiquitous web access. In this presentation, Elance and Anybots will outline a vision for a way of working sure to provoke new direction in the way we work.

  • The Truly Mobile Workforce: Smartphones, GPS and Crowdsourcing

    by Ariel Seidman

    The smartphone is a powerful computer that's always connected, always on and knows a lot about its context. What if you could marry workers' desire to work with their availability and an employer's needs? You would create a new marketplace that matches availability and need on both sides: a win-win proposition. We hear from Ariel Seidman about the real-world impacts of his new service and how it will shape the way we approach work.
