Global AIoT Impact in Business: From Corporates to Startups

August 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

The Curitiba Connectory is turning 2 years old, and to celebrate it, we will have, in August, a month full of intresting events for you, our special guest!

Artificial intelligence (AI or AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are important cornerstones of the digital transformation, especially for manufacturers and operators of networked plants. The combination of AI and IoT (=AIoT) makes it possible to build truly intelligent, networked products and solutions. Early examples leveraging asset intelligence and swarm intelligence in industries such as mobility, consumer goods and energy are already successfully in use. We believe this is just the beginning – AIoT has the potential to reshape many industries in the coming decade.
