We're pleased to announce that Joop Hazenberg, author of the book Technology in command as well as indepedent advisor to GSMA and Google, will be a keynote speaker at the 2019 ETIS Community Gathering, which takes place from October 17-18 in Vienna, Austria.
He will discuss "The fourth industrial revolution and the telecoms sector".
The world is at the cusp of entering the Fourth Industrial Revolution. What technologies does this revolution consist of (such as AI, robotisation, 5G and blockchain) and how do they interact? What impact will this next ‘machine age’ have for our economies and societies? And what role can the telecoms sector play in the industrial revolution?
Joop will discuss these exciting developments as well give an outlook to 2030 and what the world may look like by then. He will also explore the various strategies that telecom operators can take to position themselves in the 5G era – anywhere from being the dumb pipe to full integration with verticals such as the automotive or energy sectors.
