According to the UN, the human population is likely to reach 8.6 billion in 2030 – the same year that the number of connected devices will reach between 500 billion and 1 trillion. This presents massive opportunities for innovation in a number of areas; from tackling ageing populations to climate change, mass urbanisation the search for clean energy and
food and water shortages. With so many connected devices globally, operators must also re-align their competitive strategies, skills and services. The value of data generated by this number of devices is yet to be fully realised and the combination of blockchain and IoT Technologies also offers new opportunities for innovation. We must leverage these technologies to ensure no-one is left behind.
This session offers up profound real-world examples of cutting-edge innovations in the IoT landscape.
