Keynote: The Fourth Industrial Revolution
We are at the beginning of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we interact with each other, our working environment, companies, brands and governments. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unprecedented. One of its key tenants is the need for a complex ecosystem of organizations, from commercial companies to regulators and civic institutions and many more, to work in harmony and at a tremendous scale to unlock the potential of this technological, industrial and social revolution.
Mobile has connected nearly 5 billion people with unprecedented processing power, storage capacity, and access to knowledge, but this is just the start. The addition of usable big data, artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, and quantum computing will enable a more intelligent and efficient world. Which is essential if we are to manage our burgeoning population, manage our finite resources and address climate change.
This keynote will feature key players from across this diverse ecosystem from enablers to users of the technology required to drive The Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Women4Tech Keynote: Women Empowering Technology Equality
This session will highlight how integrating gender equality into the mainstream of our work environments and labor-related policies promotes equality of opportunity and treatment for men and women.
The 5G Ecosystem
During this session, the discussion will revolve not only on the core technology that will become the building blocks of 5G, but also the merits of this new generation, why it is necessary, and where we will see the early deployments and developments.
The Role of Technology in the Fight Against Climate Change
Every person on earth is experiencing the effects of climate change, and the technology industry is uniquely positioned to mitigate many of those effects. From energy-harnessing toys to emergency alert infrastructure, technology companies have developed innovative solutions that reduce energy use and improve the lives of those impacted. While individual efforts are beneficial, could the industry have greater influence through collective action? This session will highlight best practices in innovation and collaboration for the fight against climate change.
5G Network Slicing - Business Models and Network Capabilities
