CONNECTIONS™ is the premier connected home event hosting more than 650 executives from the connected entertainment, IoT, and smart home industries. CONNECTIONS™ provides networking opportunities combined with two days of visionary keynotes and conference sessions focused on technology adoption and trends, product and service forecasts, evaluation of new business strategies, and recommendations for strategic partnerships, monetization opportunities, and value-added service design.
By embracing diversity and cultivating women-owned businesses, the design industry is creating a new wellspring of inspiration for the next generation of practitioners. Join Metropolis editor in chief Avi Rajagopal for a candid conversation with designers Corey Damen Jenkins, Young Huh, Everick Brown, and Sweeten CEO and founder Jean Brownhill.
Together they will shine the spotlight on the incredible talents that are sometimes overshadowed in a largely Caucasian- and male-dominated business world. In addition to discussing themes of representation, accountability, and adversity, the group will highlight the importance of design industry role models for up-and-coming designers from diverse backgrounds. If you can see it, you can be it.
The event is open to trade only; registration is required.
The rise of A.I. in smart cities everywhere will be fundamental to making municipalities work better for us. But even when machines “do everything,” there will still be lots of work – and jobs – for humans to do. Cognizant will share new roles and jobs that will emerge such as IoT-expert Cyber City Analysts, Tidewater Architects, and Vertical Farm Consultants. With the onset of autonomous vehicles, what new roles emerge when drivers really are hands free? Based on new research from Cognizant’s Center for the Future of Work, this webinar will present actionable advice and guidance on how to navigate the Age of AI, Algorithms and Automation and explore the new jobs of the (not too distant) future that are emerging in smart cities of tomorrow.
