The Internet of Things (IoT) presents an opportunity to collect a lot information about every physical events and operation of a business. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a growing role in IoT applications and deployments, a shift apparent in the behavior of companies and makers operating in this area.

By 2020, more than 50 billion devices will be connected through radio communications. In conjunction with the rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) market, low power wide area networks (LPWAN) is a quickly emerging area of the IoT and represents a huge market opportunity as the IoT scales.

AI-powered IoT can also help improve operational efficiency. Just as machine learning can predict equipment failure, it can predict operating conditions and identify parameters to be adjusted. There is big opportunity for those businesses that can convert raw IoT data into business insights, and the key to doing so lies within effective data analytic.

In this webinar we will discuss different topics:
– Data value chain in IoT
– Importance massive IoT of LPWAN technologies (Sigfox, LoRa,NB-IoT and LTE-M).
– Power of IoT an AI
– Use cases and opportunities of IOT & AI
– Challenges of IoT & AI in implementation
