Bilyana Anicic - Enterprise Architect - Talk: Digital Transformations: Mapping our Future

Geospatial Digital Transformation: AI, 5G, AR/VR, Blockchain, IoT, Big Data Analytics, Open Source, Cloud
Tuesday Jun 18   02:00 PM to 02:30 PM (30 minutes)
Today, geospatial technologies are embedded in many of the workflows that support the Fourth Industrial Revolution and therefore invaluable to users. This means that geospatial information is no longer the domain of specialists and suddenly has become a context for the rest of our augmented existence.

From Pokémon Go, to Uber and autonomous vehicles (AV), Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), smart applications and on-line mapping tools give the public almost instant access to a wealth of information that is tied to a geographic location, bridging the real world with the digital world. This only will increase appetites for more maps and location data than ever before, but it will not be possible without agreed-upon rules for sharing this data, which is essential for taking advantage of the true potential of this resource.

Advancement of Geomatics is making a great contribution to human sustainable development. Location Intelligence is an emerging scientific field that is giving rise to new data scientists who will combine the skills and talents from often disjointed areas of expertise (e.g. geomatics and sociology).

In the future, geospatial information will continue to be fundamental to improved decisions and faster growth. Maintaining Canada's leadership position in this fast-moving, competitive field will depend on innovative researchers in academia, public and private sectors, who are at the forefront of sensor and visualization technologies. The ability to combine deep computational expertise with creativity and a socially insightful view of the world in the creation of niche apps will become increasingly important.

As they undergo significant digital transformation programs, organizations and governments across the globe are faced with a series of increasingly complex challenges. The geospatial data and Location Intelligence (LI) are increasingly being leveraged to reduce complexity, improve data quality, streamline business processes, manage risks better, and increase operational efficiency.

This talk will guide you through what you need to know about disruptive technologies, from AI and IoT to Cloud and Blockchain, taking you beyond the buzzwords and towards important building blocks of successful digital transformations.
