ConTech 2018 is less than three months away!

The world of publishing has been forged from two great waves of technology – the invention of the printing press and the creation of the internet. Those who attend ConTech 2018 will get to grips with the next, third wave of technology that is already revolutionising the world of publishing.

A new generation of intelligent technology is transforming publishing and the world of digital content. Driven by data science and artificial intelligence, new tools are making publishers and content providers smarter, faster and more attuned to the needs of their users.

At ConTech 2018, you’ll hear from the pioneering publishers who have embraced this new technology to change the way they create, manage and sell their content, and from content users and information specialists who are using this new generation of tools to revolutionise the way they gain insight from content.

Speakers from established organisations such as Google, Elsevier, UK Government Digital Services and Wiley will be joined by new players: Oiga Technologies, Twipe, Echobox, Yewno and to name just a few. Keynoting we have Andrew Burgess – a leading authority on AI and RPA – describing how an organisation can start their AI journey and build their own AI strategy.  Albert Barque-Duran, Cognitive Scientist and Artist – demonstrating how AI can collaborate in human creative endeavour. Max Gilbert – CDO Taylor and Francis looking at AI, Blockchain and Data Science and the implications for publishers as we move towards a distributed, self-learning, and intelligence-based future.

ConTech 2018 will also host the next DataBeers London event at the end of day 1. www.contechlive/databeers
