Demystifying artificial intelligence. Although Artificial intelligence still sounds more like science fiction, it is becoming more and more real and impacting businesses. Artificial intelligence will play a critical role in how businesses deal with data.

Bertrand Duperrin
If digital technology has allowed us to lay some foundations, the real maelstrom is the one of cognitive informatics (and therefore of the knowledge economy which goes with it). A topic which is to become mainstream in the coming months and which will replace the one of digital transformation in 2017 or 2018... What about competitors, jobs cuts, the loss of privacy, …

Rethinking Weather: A Business Imperative
Weather, and the weather forecast, is one of the largest unmeasured and (mostly) unmanaged influencers of consumer behavior and spending. 
And that impact is growing due to: the increased precision and reliability of weather forecasts,  the increasing use of smart phones to access forecasts,  and the inherent utility of weather forecasts as a planning tool used by literally hundreds of millions of people, around the world, multiple times per day.  To date, businesses have mostly taken a reactive view of the influence of weather on consumers but now, with the advent of cognitive computing, more precise and accurate weather data and forecasts, as well as new supply chain/ad tech capabilities, the use of weather as an objective planning and execution lever is becoming more common.
In this session, we explore the reasons behind the growing influence of the weather forecast on consumer behavior, and the new technologies that are enabling increased forecasting precision. We present examples of how companies are leveraging weather and technology to increase sales and profitability, and what the future holds as it relates to using weather data and forecasts as the basis for shaping business strategies."

 Stephan Grosjean - Smappee
Our climate is changing, it’s happening now and will have catastrophic consequences for our future generations if we don’t act! This is what motivated us at Smappee to act and provide homeowners a tool to provide them insight in their energy usage and their climate footprint. Yes, it is possible, by using big data!

 Wim JANSEN: JC Decaux
