As the world prepares for a 5G future, the internet of things is about to become a reality. And with that comes a huge opportunity for the European Union, where advanced industries will be the first to make the leap toward fully automated factories, AI-controlled processes, complex supply chain management and hyper-fast product delivery.
- Is the digital transformation a way for Europe’s industry to boost its competitiveness and lead on the global stage?
- How can companies that have invested to develop world-beating manufacturing tools protect their highly connected networks from penetration and industrial espionage?
- How can Europe’s industrial champions ensure that the networks to which they connect their factories of the future are secure from spying by corporate rivals or state-backed entities?
All of these questions are clear and present as Europe prepares for the rollout of the high-speed 5G networks that will make IoT possible. This event will bring together top industry executives and policymakers to examine how Europe should lay the groundwork for an IoT future and how IoT is changing industry and manufacturing as we know it.
