The Next Tech Frontier: Exploring IoT and Multi-Modal Generative AI

Join us for an online panel discussion exploring the next frontier of technology. This session is designed to broaden your perspective and deepen your understanding of two revolutionary fields, Internet of Things (IoT) and Multi-Modal Generative AI, and their increasingly intertwined futures. 

We are bringing together an esteemed panel of industry experts, technologists, and thought leaders to dissect the fascinating interplay between IoT devices and multi-modal generative AI. At the heart of our exploration is the concept of the “data story”, an all-encompassing approach to understanding and harnessing vast volumes of information in the digital age. 

Data stories consist of three integral stages: data abstraction, data analysis, and data visualisation. We will delve into each of these stages – their significance, the challenges they present, and the role of IoT and generative AI in facilitating their execution. 

The intersection of IoT and multi-modal generative AI holds immense potential for shaping the data landscapes of tomorrow. This session will arm you with insights to navigate these emerging technologies and make sense of large data sets in your organisation or field.

This event promises to be an invaluable resource for tech enthusiasts, industry professionals, and anyone keen to understand the role of IoT and AI in the future of data management.
