What is the future of mobile computing? Microsoft’s Kevin Henrikson and NYU Professor Anindya Ghose tell Michael Krigsman of CXOTALK about why mobile products are increasingly important, how they’re changing and what issues lie ahead. Henrikson offers insight on what it’s like to develop mobile applications for one of the largest software companies, while Ghose recently wrote the book “Tap” about the mobile economy of smartphones and the limitless future of AI, augmented and virtual reality, wearable tech, smart homes, and the Internet of Things.
Henrikson is the partner director of engineering at Microsoft, where he is responsible for mobile products on Android and iOS. He is also an advisor and co-founder of Alpha Brand Media, and co-founded Acompli, which Microsoft acquired in 2014 for $200 million.
Ghose is the Heinz Riehl Chair Professor of Business at New York University's Leonard N. Stern School of Business and the Director of the Masters of Business Analytics Program at NYU Stern. He has consulted for Apple, Facebook, NBC Universal, Samsung, and collaborated with Adobe, Alibaba, Google IBM, Microsoft and more leading Fortune 500 companies. He has published more than 80 papers in premier scientific journals and serves on the Research Council of the Wharton Customer Analytics Institute.
