Open to the Public. No fee. 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
The Pub Talk begins at 6:00 p.m.
and updating key business information while on the road is difficult:
laptop-based offline synchronization solutions make accessible only
partial data sets that are out of date; wireless connectivity is
sporadic and slow; and PDAs have screens that are too small to effectively
represent information typically displayed on a desktop monitor.
these challenges, Dejima, Inc. offers a novel, yet practical approach.
Unlike current mobile access solutions that force users to navigate
complex application menus over slow network connections, Dejima
enables users to request information and execute tasks using their
own words through email, wireless messaging, Web, and speech. Consider
email: sending messages such as "show opps in NE region closing
this quarter with probability > 60%" or "change Cisco
opp status to Closed-Won" can accurately produce the desired
results in one step, with minimal bandwidth requirements, automatic
queuing of requests when out of connectivity range, and with screen-efficient,
precise answers provided to direct questions.
At this Pub
Talk, Adam Cheyer will demonstrate the ease-of-use and effectiveness
of Dejima's mobile solutions and will answer questions about the
patent technology underlying the approach.
