CWIC 4th July 2018

Thinking beyond the hype

This conference will challenge, inform & inspire delegates to think beyond the hype, focussing on sEVEN technology areas.

Where do the genuine opportunities for business growth lie, now and in the future?

We live in a world in which proponents of new technologies claim that they have the potential to dramatically change our lives, and the technologies seem to emerge on an almost weekly basis.

CW members and the wider community work intensively on the development of new technologies as well as their deployment into new application areas. The tech community are realising innovative new solutions, new services and adding value to our lives and our businesses in ways which previously were unimaginable.

Some of these technologies go on to become massive market successes whilst others fail to meet the requirements for business realisation. Nevertheless we always aim to think beyond the hype, identifying genuine technology game-changers and attempt to find those characteristics which ensure market breakthrough.

CWIC 2018 will focus on technologies which have received significant attention over the past year which are critical for the ongoing digital transformation of society. We will discuss not only the state-of-the art and the critical business success factors, but the ethics of how these developments are brought to market and the potential impact they are going to have on our lives.

Join us as we explore who might be the winners and losers in this transformational environment. Seeking answers to:

  • What is necessary to succeed as the internet evolves into the internet of people, the internet of things and even the invisible internet of autonomous devices and services?
  • How will these developments impact our lives, our businesses and society in general?
  • What steps do we need to take now, not only to ensure that the convergence of these technology developments benefit us as technologists and investors, but also are positive for society and the environment in which we all live?

Early bird tickets will be released soon - watch this space!
