There’s a lot of noise about billions of interconnected objects: but how can they help us? how can billions of sensors help me? How can I use the data without being spied by governments and corporations? How can I enjoy the art better and travel lighter, without worries? How can my house be homely, welcoming, cozy, and saving energy at the same time? How can we move good without any harm for the environment? How can I pay a fraction of my medical expenses and have a better treatment?
The idea behind Meet-IoT, an event organised within the Italian presidency of the EU and with the help of the Italian Ministry for Research, Education and University (MIUR), the city of Rome and the Rome Chamber of Commerce, is to bring in front a professional audience some of the best advancements in the area, fostering looking-forward discussions with key players.
There will be three parts:
- An exhibition, focusing on futuristic scenarios where innovative companies will show their technologies, and showing in a practical way how our future will look like.
- Different panels, bringing together the most influential thinkers, to compare different points of view and to discuss on roadmaps and evolutions;
- Hacaktons, where young talents can show their skills by solving issues proposed by companies and societal challenges.
