AI Convention Europe and IoT & Mobility: Facts and Figures

The coupled conferences for AI and IoT professionals – AI Convention Europe and IoT & Mobility – took place on Thursday 3rd October at Event Lounge in Brussels. For the first time, the organizers TIMGlobal Media – publisher of the European B2B industrial magazine IEN Europe – and Mark-Com Event have highlighted the strong link existing today between AI and IoT by running the two events in parallel. 

With more than 200 pre-registrations and almost 150 qualified participants, AI Convention Europe and IoT & Mobility presented a rich lineup of 16 speakers who took the floor during the day, giving an overview of AI and IoT from different angles. 

The conferences were opened by Sara Ibrahim, Field Editor IEN Europe Network, and moderated by Maryse Colson, Chief Marketing Officer at digazu, for AI Convention Europe, and Marc Husquinet, journalist specialized in IT, for IoT & Mobility.


The impact of AI on interpreting ''X'' data


AI and the value of trust, smart factory, the impact of AI on the society of the future, AI and gender equality, growing sales with AI – these are just some of the topics presented at the convention to give the audience the broadest perspective possible on different AI scenarios and use cases. ‘’AI will change everything in 10 years’ time.’’ said Patrice Latinne, Partner at Ernst & Young Belgium, in his opening speech entitled How do you teach AI the value of trust? Which cultural and technical attributes are practically required along the development lifecycle of AI systems.

Customer experience is at the center of the evolution of AI. ‘’We are in an experience economy, and it’s fundamental to capture and to interpret in the right way the experiences that we deliver as companies to our customers, employees, business partners, suppliers. Today the brand is the experience and the experience makes the brand. So it’s all about how we correlate all the ‘’X’’ data, the experience data, with the operational data. This is possible by evolving to an intelligent enterprise.’’ said Kenneth Stevens, Global Head of Platform & Technologies Presales at SAP.

5G leading the digital transformation

The growth in Internet energy consumption, connectivity, 5G and the digital transformation were at the center of the IoT & Mobility conference. ‘’The growth in Internet energy consumption is impacting IoT.’’ declared David Bol, Assistant Professor at the Catholic University of Louvain, in his opening session questioning IoT and sustainability.

‘’5G will transform industrial manufacturing. If we talk about 5G, we talk about connectivity, digital transformation and, substantially, about how companies must innovate to improve productivity. 5G is at the heart of the company of the future. We conducted a global study on this topic that demonstrates that 44% of the companies are not happy with their connectivity and 75% consider 5G one of the key technologies that will matter for them in the future.’’ Frederic Vander Sande, Strategy & Transformation Expert at Capgemini, explained.
