Smart Manchester: IoT in Healthcare, Energy & Life Sciences
Thu 4 May 2017, 17:30 – 21:30 BST
The global IoT industry is expected to become a $14.4T market by 2022 (Cisco).
The Internet of Things is a concept of connecting all things - from devices to homes, from shoes to factories, street lamps to buses, or literally anything and everything under the sun. IoT refers to a network of physical objects embedded with electronics, software, network connectivity and sensors, that are able to collect and exchange data used to run cities more efficiently, transparently and sustainability.
IoT has been a buzzword for sometime, but it is becoming more and more a reality as we witness industries such as Healthcare, Engineering, and Life Sciences harnessing this technology to provide better services and improve lives.
In the UK, the government has invested £32M to accelerate its national IoT capability. Recently, the City of Manchester was named as the country’s IoT capital, boasting innovation in transportation, energy, and the healthcare.
Innovation Forum Manchester tackles the importance of IoT in the British way of life, its advantages, impact, and potential to transform not just our public services but also the way we live our daily lives.
Join us on 4th of May 2017 at 5.30 p.m. in Manchester Conference Centre to re-discover Manchester as the UK's IoT capital and a global model for a smarter city.
