From thought-provoking talks to illuminating case studies, the Business Transformation Tech Talks stream on 17 September maps out early adopter journeys and the latest developments in areas such as AI, voice and text bots, AR and MR, cognitive services, IoT and UX innovations.

During the Artificial Intelligence - Driving the Next Wave of Innovation session, Alex Zhukov CTO of Videogorillas and Yoav Oz, co-founder of Spotad will discuss the potential applications of AI, while the Inventing the Future - Decoding the Unknown discussion will feature BBC R&D Head of Internet Research & Future Services Section George Wright and Disney Research Head of the Digital Platforms and Applications Group Sasha Schriber. 

IBC Conference Producer Olga Kim said: “As technology innovation accelerates it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with what’s hype and what’s really worth investing in. Tech Talks will give real insight into what’s happening in research labs all over the world as well as current success stories that have already been implemented and what’s next.

“Each session will have a selection of exciting topics; we’ll have a session on virtual and mixed reality, then we have a session on artificial intelligence applications so we will see the latest exciting innovations specifically for the entertainment industry.

“We will finish with a session that looks into the future; everyone knows that to predict the future you have to invent it, and we will have speakers from research labs from interesting countries with scientific backgrounds who will talk about the cutting edge projects they are working on and look at what’s next.”
