Nella pagina su wikipedia sotto la voce technological convergence
Technological convergence is the modern presence of a vast array of different types of technology to perform very similar tasks.
Il termine convergenza e' normalmente usato per indicare combinazione sinergetiche tra voce (e apparecchi telefonici), dati e video in un unico network – queste tecnologie interagiscono una con l'altra creando nuove piattaforme e modificando il modo in cui il messaggio e' percepito -
La convergenza tecnologica e' alla base dei computer networks, nel quale cooperano sistemi che usano protocolli diversi, questo puo' essere considerato l'antecente dei networks di intelligenza artificiale.

Given advancements in WiMAX and other leading edge technologies, the ability to transfer information over a wireless link at combinations of speeds, distances and non line of sight conditions is rapidly improving. It is possible that one could never need to be connected by a wire to anything, even while at home.

The original definition of “ubiquitous” was made by Mark Weiser,49 a researcher at Xerox, who identified and articulated a new computing paradigm, which consisted of a context-aware concept, in which computing capabilities are incorporated everywhere and linked, automatically generating the optimal operational status.
Japan, which is one of the most important incubators and implementers of the paradigm, has provided us with a meaningful definition of “ubiquitous”. This defines the ubiquitous network as an environment for ICT utilization, where “a network is connected at any place, any time and with any object”.
The introduction of the new communication technologies has led to a new way of communication, which enables a user to be connected to a network without using a PC.
These technologies include Bluetooth, wireless LAN and related protocols (IEEE802.11), electric power line networks (Internet connections using existing electric lines), RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), network cameras, car navigation systems.

Media 101: Creating the Future by Understanding the Past
Technology might be changing at the speed of light, but the basics we teach our students remain important and relevant. Interesting programming is a must no matter if you deliver it to a battery-operated portable radio, a high-definition flat panel television, or an iPod.
Good writing is good writing, no matter if it is done with a pen, a typewriter, or a Wi-Fi enabled laptop. Creating ethically responsible communicators was our job in 1955 and it is our job today. And the scholarship that we create about what we teach and how we teach it is possible only because of the scholars who came before us.
So let’s use BEA 2007 to reflect on the core issues and values that we convey to our students and each other. How do we teach students to write? How do we teach students to frame the perfect shot or tell the perfect story? And why do these basics still matter when technology becomes obsolete before you open the box?
History is the foundation on which we build the future. It serves us well, as media educators, to consider how this changing technology impacts both undergraduate and graduate education. In a fast-changing world, how do we train the next generation of professionals and how do we train the next generation of professors?
In the year 2007, we will celebrate many important milestones in electronic media history.
Milestones that act as reminders of where we have been and the lens through which we can view the future.
• 8 years before our convention, Congress passed the Radio Act of 1927, the law which provided the basic structure of the media industries that we know today.
• 60 years before our convention, NBC permanently linked four stations on the East Coast to create a permanent network.
• 40 years before our convention, Congress passed the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 and Sony introduced the first lightweight, portable and cheap video recorder, known as the "portapak."
• 35 years before our convention, The Electric Company debuted on PBS, the WGBH Caption Center prepared the first open-captioned national broadcast (The French Chef), and the FCC began to regulate cable in an organized fashion.
• 30 years before our convention, South Africans see television for the first time, as test transmissions begin from the state-backed South Africa Broadcast Company with half the broadcasts in English and half in Afrikaans.
• 25 years before our convention, Sun Microsystems, Adobe, and Silicon Graphics Inc were founded. Looking back on any and all of these events can give us a clearer view of what is to come.
Without a firm grounding in history, we simply flail about – reacting to each new technology that comes along as if none of the old teachings still apply. So let’s also use BEA2007 to view the future through the lens of the past – finding out how the new technologies fit into the grand scheme of Educating Tomorrow’s Electronic Media Professionals.
