At the Inpho Venture Summit, taking place October 6 – 7, 2016 in Bordeaux, investors will tackle captains of industry on key topics relating to mobility, health management, energy management, Datacom/ telecom and disruptive technologies.
These topics are bankable challenges, but their cross-fertilization is also expected to enable solutions and the champions emerge who, over the next few years, will make the difference in the marketplace.
The Inpho Venture Summit is a high-level strategic business partnering and investor event focused on innovation and opportunities in growth markets.
While the consumer electronics market is becoming a playground to showcase what new smart and digital technologies can achieve, analysts expect that the adoption of these innovations by traditional and emerging industries will take the largest part of the business.
Five panel sessions at Inpho will cover these smart technologies offering virtually unlimited potential in the new and digital economy:
The Future of Mobility
Autonomous vehicles are emerging and will soon become a reality, as advanced driver assistance and auto-pilot systems improve. According to a 2015 BCG survey on US car buyers, one in two (55%) purchasers would be interested in buying a partially autonomous car, whole 44% would consider buying a fully self-driving one.
Big data: Ushering in a New Era in Medicine
The health system also has to evolve and structure a new organization in order to better diagnose and treat an aging population. Cancer, infectious diseases as well as neurologic disorders from depression to neurodegenerations are major causes of death, which has a large societal impact (source: IMI).
