Google's developer conference kicks off in San Francisco today: Queen's University expert

2014-06-25

Queen’s technology expert Neil Bearse (School of Business) is available to discuss Google’s developer conference, which begins today in San Francisco.

Topics of conversation at this year’s conference will include Android TV, wearable technology, and home networks.

What was once a competition centred around mobile phones has grown to a race to own our entire digital existence,” says Mr. Bearse. “As Apple seems more motivated than ever to remove Google services from their iOS platform, the pressure is on Larry Page to demonstrate that Google can move beyond an engineering company and truly create compelling consumer products.”

“Wearable tech is fashion, and people don't often associate a search engine as a trend setter in that space.  Google's DNA is rooted in science, math and solving hard problems; the next wave of innovation is going to require a dose of cool.”

Please note that Mr. Bearse is only available for phone interviews. 

To arrange an interview, please contact communication officers Rosie Hales at 613.533.6000 ext. 77513 or rosie.hales@queensu.ca, or Anne Craig at 613-533-2877 or anne.craig@queensu.ca.
