Panel Discussion Overview
What are the game-changing technologies that have recently emerged and are coming down the road in the near future?
Technology professionals at financial services firms have been well aware of the accelerating advance of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality, and their impact on everything from financial markets to cybersecurity.
But what about the impact of research breakthroughs in areas like materials science, which can affect IoT, sensors, robotics and embedded intelligence, creating new markets and disrupting existing ones?
