                    Isn’t Cyber the next big thing?

• All the buzz is about cyber …
    – Cyberwarfare, Cyberspace, Cyber Commands, CNCI

• … but it’s misplaced, cyber is but just one means that networks use, they
  also use others…

• The real buzz should be about what’s next:
    – It will be ubiquitous: u-computing·u-networking·u-sensors·u-linking
    – Network convergence: Social + Physical + Biological Networks
    – The human aspect: how will we interact with a converged network?
    – Collaboration: heterarchical vs hierarchical; open source, Wikipedia
    – Technology drivers: miniaturization, nanotechnology, machine learning, GPS,
      data farms, virtualization, cloud computing
    – … and the exponential pace at which it is developing
