Menu of technologies that will be covered

After an introduction to the top ten trends in emerging technologies, listed below, participants have the opportunity to experience a deep dive into some of the technologies that are having the most significant business impacts today, through real life examples of how they are being deployed.

  1. Autonomous Things - that use AI to automate functions previously performed by humans. These include robotics, vehicles, drones, appliance, agents.
  2. Augmented Analytics - focuses on a specific area of augmented intelligence. Augmented analytics uses automated machine learning to transform how analytics content is developed and displayed. Examples of this include using natural language processing to read quarterly reports.
  3. AI-driven Development - explores the evolution of tools, technologies and best practices for embedding AI capabilities into applications. It also explores the use of AI to create AI-powered tools used in the development process itself.
  4. A Digital Twin - is a digital representation of a real-world entity or system. The goal of digital twins is to improve the efficiency/ capacity of the business, manufacturing facility or system.
  5. Edge computing - describes a computing topology in which information processing and content collection and delivery are placed closer to the sources and repositories of this information.
  6. Immersive Experiences - which include Conversational Agent platforms, Virtual Reality, Augmented reality and Mixed reality solutions.
  7. Blockchain – which is a type of distributed ledger. A distributed ledger is an expanding chronologically ordered list of cryptographically signed, irrevocable transactional records shared by all participants in a network. Blockchain and other distributed-ledger technologies provide trust in untrusted environments, eliminating the need for a trusted central authority.
  8. Smart Spaces – which are a physical or digital environment in which humans and technology-enabled systems interact in increasingly open, connected, coordinated and intelligent ecosystems. Multiple technologies contribute to smart spaces including the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Edge Computing.
  9. Digital Ethics and Privacy - are growing concerns for individuals, organizations and governments. Consumers are increasingly aware their personal information is valuable and are demanding control. Organizations recognize the increasing risk of securing and managing personal data, and governments are implementing strict legislation to ensure they do.
  10. Quantum Computing - is a type of nonclassical computing that operates on the quantum state of subatomic particles (for example, electrons and ions) that represent information as elements denoted as quantum bits (qubits).
