Next Web Programming Models


The next generation web group at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center is 
exploring the architectural elements that will make up the distributed 
computing platform of the future.  In this I will give a short outline of 
our work in the Next Generation Application platform which proposes a 
unified programming model across both client and server.  I will then 
focus on delivery of the end user experience on the client and talk about 
some of the technologies that will alter the way we interact with 
computers.  I will complete the talk by discussing some of the challenges 
that still need to be addressed in order to realize the vision presented 
during the talk.
