26 Sep Unmanned and Unbelievable: time to hit London Tech Week
Robots on the streets and drones in the sky…a scene from BladeRunner 2049? No, this is London Tech Week.
Between 11 and 17 June, all eyes will be on London as the city hosts Europe´s largest festival of technology and innovation. Unmanned Life will be there alongside some of the biggest names in tech who will be showcasing the latest transformational technologies and innovations, including robots, AI and autonomous vehicles. London will be hosting over 50,000 delegates from around the world, and leading entrepreneurs, policy-makers, start-ups and international talent will gather to share their visions and build partnerships.
Headline speakers include Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, Baroness Martha-Lane Fox, founder of lastminute.com and Sir Martin Sorrel of WPP, and the city-wide event will be opened by Mayor Sadiq Khan.
London will be connecting global economies through the web of the digital ecosystem, bringing together corporates, venture capital and tech companies. Cities and countries around the world are embracing their tech and start-up sectors and coming together to build a smarter future. Some of the biggest talking points of London Tech Week will be the future of work and Artificial Intelligence putting Unmanned Life on the centre stage at panel discussions, events and workshops across the capital.
CEO Kumardev Chatterjee, COO Nicholas Zylberglajt and the whole team at Unmanned Life will be heading to London next week to share our vision of Autonomy-as-a-Service, and our innovative AI driven software platform, which integrates fleets of autonomous vehicles and other IoT devices, over the cloud via a single management interface both indoors and outdoors, with or without GPS, over Wi-Fi, 4G LTE or 5G.
