Webb: Search will come to you

ONA attendees once again flocked to Webb Media Group CEO Amy Webb’s session, “10 Tech Trends For Journalists” on Friday. Her standing room only interactive talk included drones, a handheld 3D printer and digital personal assistant applications.

Webb highlighted what she believes to be next era in technology: ambient search. She said that users will no longer need to look up something online; devices will now search automatically without prompt using speech, location and scheduled events.
