TITLE: IoT & The Data Economy

Through history, technology has steered the economy. This session parses the signal from the noise around the biggest tech buzzwords of today — IoT, AI, ML, VR/AR, Blockchain — and informs how technology is impacting business and operations. There is evidence that real-time data is going to be more impactful than the internet. Learn the challenges, opportunities and how to participate in the Data Economy.
