At CES 2017, W3C is proud to present its 2016 activities across a broad spectrum of industries and technologies. Come meet and discuss - we are in Suite #313 at the Westgate Hotel. In the meantime, check below the hot topics we are working on!

Ever seen before? - Virtual reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is the next frontier for immersive entertainment experiences. At a recent W3C Workshop on Web and Virtual Reality, more than 70 organizations came together to demonstrate the benefits that that Web can bring to VR ecosystem. Learn more or meet on site with Dominique Hazaël-Massieux.

The Web in your car! - W3C Automotive

The W3C Web and Automotive activities include a standards-track group doing the technical specifications, and a Web and Automotive Business Group that identifies use cases and requirements for potential new standards work for vehicles. W3C has enhanced its collaborations with Auto industry associations such as the OMA and the GENIVI Alliance. Learn more or contact with Ted Guild.

The Web of things

Smart cars, smart cities, healthcare and smart manufacturing are already leading the way in IoT.  But interoperability remains a challenge. For the past two years, W3C has been working to define use cases and requirements to define global standards for an abstraction layer for the Internet of Things (IoT) - this is the Web of Things, which will enable open markets of services embracing different platforms and standards. Come meet with Dave Raggett to learn more.

Checkout! - Payments

Consumers will streamline their checkout with W3C standards as early implementations of the Payment Request API are beginning to appear. In addition, other communities within W3C are incubating ideas around interledger payments, verifiable credentials, digital offers, blockchain and the Web, hardware-based secure services, and paid content models. Learn more or meet with Alan Bird.

Are you secured? - Web Authentication

There is a long-standing need to replace the User Name / Password approach to security. The W3C work aims to improve security against phishing and interception attacks by delivering a standard Web API for strong cryptographic authentication. This work started from a Member Submission of FIDO 2.0 from participants in the FIDO Alliance. Learn more or meet on site with Wendy Seltzer.

Smooth HTML5-Based Video Playback!

Media Source Extensions fulfills a vital part of putting video on the Web; the API is the best option to guarantee a smooth user experience of media playback.
