Rethinking the rules

The world is changing fast and this is called the 4th Industrial Revolution: robots make cars, computers make movies, cameras are drones, Airbnb is the largest hotel chain, owning no real estate, Uber the largest taxi company in the world, owning no cars.

This presentation will expose the future of making mindset and technologies: the new Digital Capture Technologies, Mobility and Connectivity, Cloud Computing, Virtual and Augmented Realities, Biomimetics, AI and Machine Learning.

While this digital revolution will encompass all industries, the panel will focus on its early applications as well as the huge economic implications in the areas of Entertainment, Education, Medical, Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC).

Why Attend?

This changes everything for the kind of people who watch movies (Avatar, Gravity, Netflix), drive a car (Tesla), or live in a house (Solar City, Airbnb).

Capacity: 70
