Fredericton, NB, Canada – December 30, 2011 – It's impossible to predict the future, but with the latest advancements in technology and an ever-changing world the power is in our hands. That was the focus at the first goFred X conference held in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
Dr. Mark Masry, CARIS' Research and Development Manager, was at the conference presenting about the future of mapping the world's oceans.
"We know more about space than we do the deep sea," said Dr. Masry to more than 500 technology enthusiast and students.
Dr. Masry went on to share the history of hydrography with the audience showing how far we've come since the first pioneers. "We now have access to a wealth of
information from places that we've never had any access to before," said Dr. Masry. "With the increase of sensor bandwidths, sensors that everyone can use, the use of autonomous vehicles, easier access to the internet, and distributed processing we are in a position to see the world in ways that were previously never possible."
The conference was a great opportunity for students - who shape our future - to see what technologies currently exist and learn how innovations can change the world.
