Wednesday, 16th January, 2019 4:46pm

Want to know what the future of business will be?

Get down to the conference centre in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Thursday 21 January for Beyond IoT 2, a special event run by CIT’s Nimbus Reasearch Centre which will bring a host of tech gurus from Silicon Valley and across the world to Cork to share their expertise.

Topics covered will include internet of things, blockchain, space, security, artificial intelligence, augmented/virtual reality, funding and business expansion.

The line-up has been expanded this year to bring technology gurus from Silicon Valley and other global players to Cork.

They include Vitaly Golomb who addressed the inaugural Beyond IOT along with some high-profile speakers from Silicon Valley including John Biggs (TechCrunch), Dave Troy, Troy Norcross, Jon Soberg (MS&AD), Stuart Hillston (ConCap), Helen McBreen (Atlantic Bridge) and more.

Beyond IoT 2 offers opportunities for multi-nationals, SMEs, start-ups, entrepreneurs, and academics to hear what successful international entrepreneurs, technologists, investors, and researchers expect from the next wave of technology, innovation and investment, and to learn how their organisations can benefit.

The inaugural event last January was a sell out and Nimbus wants to deliver an even bigger and better event in 2019 with a line-up of speakers from across world. Attendees will include researchers, investors, entrepreneurs, academics, start-ups, business owners and top executives from large multinationals.

Clinics will provide an opportunity to get expert advice from field experts in technology, investment, funding avenues, entrepreneurship and academic research. These sessions will provide invaluable advice and guidance on how attendees can facilitate investment, drive technology innovation, create collaborations and foster new commercial relationships.

Kieran Gleeson, CEO and Founder of Freight Station said: “Freight Station attended Beyond IoT in January 2018. We were delighted to hear about the technological advances that are being made right now, providing start-up companies with new opportunities in new spaces. The speakers were fascinating and their insights were extremely valuable to our own technology roadmap. We can’t wait to attend again.”

The event is approved by Engineers Ireland who provide continuous professional development (CPD) in areas relevant to the professional development of engineers. Sponsored by SteriTrack (MatrixIT), other key sponsors include VMWare, Jaguar Land Rover, Cork City and County Councils.

CIT’s Nimbus Research Centre is Ireland’s largest IoT (Internet of Things) centre and has a permanent workforce of 90 people. Nimbus delivers over 60 IoT projects per annuum for Irish industry.

The latest Gartner industry report indicates that 8.4 billion connected things are in use worldwide, up 31 per cent from 2016, and will reach 20.4 billion by 2020.

With total spending on endpoints and services surpassing almost $2 trillion, this is an event for all who want to understand where this new wave of technology and investment is heading and how it can be best embraced and exploited.

Start-up companies are encouraged to attend with a full discount acvailable to them.

The 2018 event was beneficial for networking and forming collaborations particularly in industry research where SMEs can access funding through technology gateways.
