I would say that of course these words are very popular now but it's not so simple maybe to make them happening and to work, especially to make some social innovations because we're having an ageing society, we have some health problems and people have not so many concerns about technology, they are concerned about their own life.

It is a technology which not only delivers major benefits to society, but which also has the potential to make European industry more competitive. [read more]
My main concerns for the future, that's a very big question... the future is full of challenges, the software is getting more complex, the devices that we have to operate are getting more complex, maybe a concern is at what level do we hit the barrier where we cannot actually interact with our environment because it's becoming too complex. So, I would like to see in the future more activities in the direction of managing this complexity, providing the user with seamless interaction with his surrounding without having to understand everything that's hidden behind.
