Ryan Sarver, Skyhook Wireless

Skyhook pioneered the development of the first ever metro-area positioning system to leverage Wi-Fi access points rather than satellites or cell towers to deliver precise geographic location. The Skyhook Wi-Fi Positioning System (WPS) requires no new hardware, works indoors and outdoors, provides location instantly, and is more accurate than current technologies indoors and in metropolitan areas.

Ryan is in charge of Product Development for Skyhook Wireless which includes products like Loki and Loki Mobile. He is also the Chair of LocationAware.org and is an Invited Expert for the W3C Ubiquitous Web Applications Working Group.
