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. We have now 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 will provide a broader platform that allowing us 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. 


This event will feature:


 Discussions on:


- Rethinking the Future of the Internet -  Objectives, priorities, Opportunities


- From the Internet of Things to the Internet of Humans: Empowering Individuals and Unleashing the Power of their Data


- IoT and AI as drivers for new business models and revenue streams
