LITA Top Technology Trends – ALA Midwinter 2016
The two trends that I talk about are the Blockchain and it’s potential for decentralization of the web, and the confluence of AI/Machine Learning and autonomous agents as interface for data.

I was asked by the LITA Top Tech Trends committee to help them test out a new idea for TTT…having a Trendster talk about a single tech trend on video, and throwing it up on YouTube. I agreed, and the result (after a little editing on my part) came out really well. Take a look:
If this is the sort of thing you’d like to see more of from LITA, please…leave a comment! Let us know what you think.
