On the first day of the conference, Tracci Schultz, FedEx senior vice president for strategic planning, is scheduled to give an IoT keynote on technology and innovation’s ability to transform traditional industries.

Scheduled for later the same day is a session led by Michael Berger, MunichRe’s head of AI insurance. Berger is expected to address industrial IoT (IIoT) and performance risks of artificial intelligence (AI) deployment in this domain, along with some key wins for managers tasked with procurements.

  • On the embedded IoT World track, practitioners can engage with an open session on finding the appropriate partners to produce secure, functional and reliable embedded technologies.

Attendees can also hear leading edge cases on digital transformation, from both IoT and AI-perspectives.

IoT World Silicon Valley will run alongside the AI Summit, the event series organized by our sister publication AI Business.
