Imagine if your coffee maker knew when you awoke and automatically started the brewing cycle. Walking to the kitchen, lights turn on and off as you enter and exit. Imagine if your car could send a message directly to your mechanic informing them of a problem. Science fiction at one point, now realized through technological developments. Explore how these scenarios are radically changing healthcare, education, retail, and other areas of life.

Dr. Shepard specializes in international issues in technology with an emphasis on the social implications of technological change, technology infrastructure development, strategy creation, technical marketing and strategic technical sales. He studies the social implications of technological change, the deployment of social media as an organizational collaboration tool,  and the development of multilingual educational programs. Through the Executive Crash Course Company,  he also researches the effective use of multimedia. He has written and directed more than 40 videos and films and technical presentations on a broad range of topics for companies and organizations worldwide. He has written and photographed in more than 90 countries, serving clients across many different industries including telecommunications, IT, media, advertising, healthcare, and government, to name a few. He is fluent in Spanish and routinely publishes and delivers presentations in that language.

Don't miss out on participating in this fascinating discussion. Chabot's telescopes will be open and are included in your ticket price.
