2010 Storage Visions Conference Announces Microsoft Research Keynote Speech

Title Is: "Total Recall and Total Storage"

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2009) - The Ninth Annual Storage Visions Conference (SV 2010) announces that Gordon Bell and Jim Gemmell of Microsoft Research will give a keynote speech at this year's event. SV 2010 will be held at the Riviera Hotel Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 5 - 6, 2010.

The Storage Visions Conference is the premier venue bringing together digital storage oriented people from throughout the digital content creation, distribution and user value chain.

Here is the abstract of "Total Recall and Total Storage": What if you never forgot anything? Trends in storage, sensing and computing will bring about an e-memory revolution in the next 10 years that will enable you to record as much of your life as you want, in previously unimaginable detail. Everything you see and hear, every step you take, every heartbeat, all of it could be captured digitally. You could have Total Recall. Total Recall will revolutionize our health, our learning, and our productivity. It will change the story we pass on to posterity, taking us to a level of "digital immortality." The consequences to society will be profound: some good and some bad. But good or bad, our experience with the MyLifeBits research project and the CARPE research community has convinced us that the e-memory revolution is inevitable.

Gordon Bell and Jim Gemmell, authors of the new book "Total Recall," will explain how the trend to storing virtually everything in one's life -- Total Storage -- will drive a market for storage like never before.

"We are so glad that Jim and Gordon can participate in the 2010 Storage Visions Conference," says SV 2010 organizer Tom Coughlin. "We have been talking about lifelogs and the implications for storage at past conferences and it is great to have some of the pioneers of lifelog technology come and speak at SV 2010."
