India Mobile Congress 2019
India Mobile Congress 2019 is going to be a digital technology event that will take place in Aerocity, New Delhi from 14 October to 16 October 2019. India Mobile Congress or IMC 2019 will be jointly organised by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI). IMC 2019 has been called the best networking event in India with two major networking meets scheduled.
The theme of the event is going to be "Imagine: a new CONNECTED world. Intelligent, Immersive, Inventive" and will focus on emerging technologies and their relevant use-cases. There will be 9 sub-themes:
1. Intelligent Edge
With the advent of 5G and NextGen Technologies such as IoT and Massive MIMO, the world is looking at a new era of connectivity, illustrated through industrial IoT, enterprise networking and critical communications.
2. Immersive World
Technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) have the capability to change the way businesses operate. Challenges and opportunities lie in creating new content and smarter revenue models for the future.
3. Privacy and Ethics
In an ever-changing world, and with early adoption of futuristic technologies, we are being opened up to vulnerabilities and threats in the cyber world. Challenges and solutions are needed that are reliable and sustainable.
4. Autonomous Things
5. Smart Spaces
Everything, from buildings to cities and villages are getting smarter and new technologies are being developed to make this transformation possible.
6. Augmented Analytics
Augmented Analytics has been called the future of analytics. It is an approach that automates insights using machine learning and natural-language generation.
7. Inventive Unicorns
A myriad of start-ups are trying to break into the market everyday. However, only a few manage to enter the market and get converted into new market giants.
8. Future Logistics
Creating faster, cheaper and more sustainable circulation of goods is the need of the hour. Automation, IoT and machine to machine communication is paving the way for a new generation of logistics.
There are opportunities in the medical and high tech mobile domains that are ripe for improving the lives of people who are unconnected and live in under-served areas. Such people will greatly profit from remote-monitoring, video consults and easy record keeping.
