Innovation and Disruptive Changes
Date: June 29, 2017
Location: The National Club, 303 Bay Street, Toronto
Time: 11:30 am Networking and Registration 12pm Lunch and Presentation
Please join Duncan Stewart of Deloitte Canada as he discusses “What innovations and disruptive changes – good or bad – promise to transform the world in 2017 and beyond?”
Well, for starters, self-braking cars instead of self-driving cars; a lot of them. What else? How about machine learning on mobile devices, indoor navigation accurate up to a few metres, and this year’s big question – Have we reached “peak tablet”? Duncan will also be looking at enterprise topics: what is behind the growth in DDoS cyber-attacks, the shift towards IT-as-a-Service, and what the adoption of 5G wireless technology means for your business.”
