Just like the inaugural edition, Reinvent 2018 also attracted a number of heavyweights from all walks of life including corporate big shots, scientists, academics, and startup gurus, among others.
Some of the most eminent personalities to have actively participated in the event this year include Dr. Jassim Haji from Gulf Air, Koh Chen Tien from Aerodyne, Anthony Carson AI Scientist, Dheeraj Singh from DOTS Tech Systems, Dr. Christopher Abraham from SP Jain School of Global Management, Prof. Raunaq Dubey from AMITY University, Dubai, Dr. Hichem Maya from SAP, and Jorge Castellote from innoway ME.
“We have crossed a technology tipping point. AI is emerging as the fuel of the technology-intensive age and the IoT is the force our Smart Cities are driven by. Cybersecurity around today’s business enterprises, powered by IoT and machine learning techniques has become critical to protecting us, our data and securing our environments,” said Mr. Haja Mohideen, President & CEO, Rocheston LLC, during his keynote at the event.
He added that Reinvent, by design, aims to provide today’s professionals with “a window to the future of technology in business” so they are able to keep pace with rapidly evolving technologies across virtually all sectors.
