Session description: Change is coming. The web is being consumed by apps. Search is becoming a victim of its own success. The Internet of Things is upon us and in the distance quantum computing is clouding the horizon. These changes will mean a shift of wealth. New winners, new losers. New monetization methods. New uses of data and machine intelligence. Where will it take us? Where will this all end?
