Advantech launched its largest, global, online event on Feb. 24 to envision how the latest innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) will shape the next industrial revolution. The Advantech Connect Online Partners Conference is virtually bringing together business leaders and innovators worldwide to promote dialogue on the future of the combined "AIoT" world, and reveal collaborative ways to accelerate digital transformation.
The event is free to attend and anyone interested is invited to register at https://connect.advantech.com. Participants can register for as many sessions as they wish to attend.
Advantech Connect kicked off with Advantech executives and speakers from its strategic partners, such as Microsoft and Intel, who addressed the topic of AIoT. Dr. William Webb, author of The Internet of Things Myth, and Alfonso Velosa, vice president analyst of Gartner Research, share insights into how AIoT takes the enterprise into the future. In addition, Ken Forster, executive director of Momenta, presented an investor perspective on accelerating digital transformation.
“At Advantech, enabling an intelligent planet has been our corporate vision since 2010,” said K.C. Liu, CEO of Advantech. “We prioritize building the future of the industrial IoT together with our strategic partners as our corporate goal. We believe that Advantech Connect will be an excellent opportunity to share our AIoT vision and together move a step forward toward that goal.”
The following two months will unveil a subsequent series of Advantech Connect presentations. From March 17 to April 30, industry experts will lead 21 topic sessions in four themes: edge + solutions, cloud platform and solutions for the Wise Ecosystem, IIoT solutions, and smart city solutions and services. Each session will be available at two different times to cater to attendees from different parts of the world. Details of each session’s topic, speakers and schedules are at the event website.
