Summary

Thank you to the 170+ delegates who attended The Future Internet Conference on 6 June in Brussels.

The conference gathered European and international stakeholders who assessed what the future of our digital societies may look like, focussed on the advanced technologies that will act as game changers and the convergence between these, while debating the immediate and longer term policy priorities for Europe’s future digital strategy.

 

Through a series of panel-based discussion and Tech Talks focusing on emerging and advanced technologies, we explored the future of the full digital ecosystem as we are entering a New Age of Intelligent Data and Connectivity.

More information

 

Cloud Computing, IoT, Big Data, Machine Learning, AI, VR...In the past ten years, we have seen a number of cutting-edge digital advances emerging and being fully integrated in our every day lives. Data-enabled technologies have become true value-creators, constantly reshaping our socio-economic activities, transforming the way we interact and blurring the lines between the digital and physical worlds. As these technologies are becoming ubiquitous, collaboration across sectors and borders has proven essential in order to realise their potential and to protect against the risks and unintended consequences linked to digitisation.

 

For the last nine years, The European Internet of Things Summit has provided a key annual meeting to discuss issues relating to digital innovation in smart environments. Having reached a turning point where it is impossible to talk about IoT without bringing in the many interlinking technologies that also underpin the emerging digital societies of tomorrow, the Future of Internet Conference provided a broader platform to continue the focus on IoT, while bringing equally exciting discussions on issues such as 5G, big data, cloud computing, AI, VR and much, much more.
