Soon we'll know so much more about what's around us.
Smartphone is going to take information from cyberspace and bring into the physical world.
It's going to take a lot - augmented reality, sophisticated location systems.
We're working with partners like Cisco Systems to evolve location based apps (they announced this several weeks ago)
Vuforia - creating apps with information you can see
Wouldn't be a keynote from Qualcomm's Jacobs without some mention of augmented reality.
Opening up opportunities from cool games and toys ... to new shopping experiences. More than 40K developers have registered for Vuforia program
Working with Sesame Workshop. Scott Chambers from the company is here
We have a long history of using cutting edge tech to help address children's developmental needs.
Developed application to help children with early literacy skills
App is first commercial endeavor Qualcomm and Sesame Workshop are collaborating on.
Woot! Big Bird's stopping by
Showing a new app called Big Bird's Words
Big Bird! He has had a big year. A shout-out during presidential debates and now a spot in a CES keynote!
With Vuforia, it gives kids' mobile devices the ability to read words out there in the world
"Wordoscope" hovers over a word, tells you what it is.
This is kind of cool. But I am always skeptical about whether this type of thing actually helps kids learn to read.
At Sesame Workshop, we know kids are entering kindergarten with a vocabulary gap. ... we have to help kids learn the words they see every day
Big Bird's Words will be available this summer
That is a terrific example of how mobile is transforming education.
Why don't we come back to health care
For people who haven't had access to basic healthcare, mobile health products can make a difference
This is when my eyes start to gloss over. A tech CEO talking about mobile technology is going to change health care.
Tutu: Mobile is the technology of choice for helping the underserved
Going to have a transformative impact on health in emerging markets and everywhere
Jacobs: We share his vision of a world where everyone has access to mobile health.
Last year's CES, Qualcomm announced a Tricoder XPrize that puts personalized health in the palm of your hand.
I believe this is possible and this is going to revolutionize health care. Over 255 teams in 34 countries preregistering. Registration will open tomorrow at 8 a.m. ET.
Jacobs is talking up Qualcomm's partnership with X Prize in mobile health. I do think XPrize competitions are very interesting and can spur some interesting innovations and products. It would e interesting to see what comes out of this.
There are a few Star Trek fans here at Qualcomm. We can't wait for the new Star Trek Into Darkness film.
