"How will Artificial Intelligence Disrupt UK Infrastructure?"

IAM NxtGen Panel Discussion

18 July 2018    |   1800-20:30   |    KPMG, 15 Canada Square, London E14 5GL

What is the size of the opportunity Artificial Intelligence brings to our Infrastructure sector?

How do organisations need to change their business models to harness these opportunities?  

Join us for an evening, co-hosted by the IAM NxtGen and Young Management Consulting Association, with an expert panel to discuss the future of UK Infrastructure and the emerging technologies changing the way we interact with assets throughout their life cycle.

Our panel will discuss the size of the opportunity that Artificial Intelligence presents for our infrastructure builders, owners, maintainers, operators and users. We will explore the ambiguities and uncertainties of technological advancements, and the future business models that will alleviate the challenges of the unknown. Discuss the impacts on the enormous workforce that is currently employed in the infrastructure market and how all of this change fits in with Government Initiatives such as the Smart Cities Agenda.

The event is chaired by Ben Foulser, Associate Director, Transport Technology, KPMG.
