IoT underpinning Data-Driven Innovation – the role of IoT in the ITP

IoT has been instrumental in the collection of data for a few years, now it is time to discuss the relevance of the application of that data across different sectors.

The Government’s Digital Technology Industry Transformation Plan has identified data driven innovation as a critical foundation for the future growth and success of the New Zealand digital sector.  An initial activity within the Data-Driven Innovation workstream is the establishment of a national network of Regional Data Innovation Labs, and Industrial Data Spaces.  These labs and data spaces will act as focal points for both public and private organizations across our regional economies to join-up, share data and help develop data-driven innovations that support development of our overall national data economy.

Join NZTech’s CEO, Graeme Muller, and Program Director for Industry 4.0 Accelerator, Malcolm Fraser and Head of AI and Data Science for Qrious, Sam Daish for a discussion on the critical role of IoT and data driven innovation for New Zealand’s future.

Hear about initiatives such as the Regional Data Innovation Labs, connect with your peers and enjoy an evening of networking.
