The Future is an Experience

About this talk

We often think about the future in technological terms: Five years from now, what will we have invented? What magical thing will be possible that we can’t even imagine today? Data is no different. The transformational changes on our horizon, we’re told, are smarter AIs, faster computation engines, and new tools that make it easier to store, catalog, process, stream, and analyze data. Our future, it seems, depends on the technologies we build. I believe we should envision the future through a different lens. As a data community, we should be asking ourselves: What experiences do we want to create? In this talk, I’ll talk about the past and future of the modern data stack—not as a collection of tools or as an architectural diagram, but as an experience. The talk will describe how the current stack can create experiential chaos, offer a proposal for what we can do about it, and provide a roadmap for how we can get there.
