From 16 to 18 October, the IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) will conduct three workshops to elaborate on aspects of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). These sessions will provide knowledge and the necessary tools to optimise the digital transformation of business in different industries. Participants will receive an official certificate from the event and the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the world’s leading organization grouping together the main actors in the IoT ecosystem, in order to work together to safely accelerate the implementation of IoT in different sectors.

The first workshop will focus on artificial intelligence and offer an overview of this technology. It will explain how it is being used successfully and where it is having a significant impact. Tips will be provided on where to start and the aspects to be taken into account during its implementation, as well as the challenges its deployment entails, depending on the company. Edy Liongosari, Chief Research Scientist at Accenture Labs, and Wael William Diab, Business and Technology Strategist at Huawei, will chair this session, with several experts in attendance.

The second workshop will demonstrate that the success of the industrial internet depends on the cooperation of different companies and will put IoT startups in contact with suppliers of solutions and financing in order to carry out these projects. Taking a practical approach, this session will enable several startups to explain the challenges they are working on and the problems they face. Several technology providers will then present solutions to contribute to resolving these challenges, as well as innovation programmes in which newly-created technology-based companies can take part. Finally, different venture capital companies will explain what they are looking for in IoT startups and outline the best way of working with them and accessing their capital injection programmes.

The last of the workshops will address the digital twin concept, which is set to transform the dynamics of the industry. This involves virtually replicating real processes in order to analyse their behaviour in certain cases, with the aims of improving their effectiveness and knowing how to act in unexpected situations. A new approach called Closed Loop PLM will be presented: CAD connections in factories and systems for the management of the product life cycle (PLM) (ALM) and (SLM) through an IoT platform which includes augmented reality and virtual reality. Those responsible for the contents are Calvin Smith, Director & Head of IoT Partner Engineering at Wipro, and Helena Lisachuck, Director IOT Global Lead at Deloitte.

The IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) is the leading event on the industrial internet and the digital transformation of business sectors, combining a congress, a commercial exhibition and test benches. The October edition expects to gather together 300 exhibitors and 250 speakers from around the world. This year’s show is set to showcase the growth of the IoT and its widescale implementation across a range of industrial and business applications and will also demonstrate the convergence of this technology with artificial intelligence and blockchain. More than 13,000 professionals from 114 countries visited the IoTSWC last year.
