8th Living Bits and Things 2018

"If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The Internet of Things is about to change it all over again!”

Brendan O’Brien,
Chief Innovation Officer and a Co-founder at Aria Systems

We are expecting the 8th edition of the Internet of Things event "Living bits and things 2018” held in Bled. Traditionally the event gives attendees current insights and understanding of the IoT in the central and east Europe (CEE) region and opportunity to share and discuss the challenges with professionals and experts.

This year we are going to closely look at the developments in three major verticals Smart Healthcare and Wellbeing, Smart cities and Industry 4.0.

Due to fast technology progress it is important to be able to keep up the pace not only with the IoT and technology in general, but also
to be able to efficiently manage business, customers, resources and risks. These are the challenges Living bits and things 2018 will address!

How to learn fast, make better decisions and efficiently innovate?

With Interent of Things and digital transformation organizations only get the enabling elements to implement their business strategy and go beyond the traditional production and cost optimization.

  • it's critical to be able to digitally manage data to develop new business models and become part of new value chains,
  • the next challenge is to develop and introduce the customized products and service with lower cost right on time,
  • it's important to stay in touch with your customers and products throughout the life cycle.

The answer to these challenges is not final and doesn't sound as a perfect plan. The answer is actually a process which directs companies to go open, to join business clusters and proactively participate or even drive the ecosystem.

Join us to learn also about the featured IIoT, Digital Industry and Industry 4.0 prototyping ecosystem FabLab - Fabrication Laboratory. It's an innovative approach for the companies to protoype and learn fast about the particular challenges of their digital transformation. This approach delivers the first hand experience of digitazing processes, products and business models. 

Hot topics @ the event in 2018

Learn why first movers and tech leaders in different industries have already adopted the IoT, what are the impacts and ROI, how they manage the risks, data security and what has IoT to offer in the next years.

Smart cities: deliver the social value

Not only cities, but in general communities are more and more important when we discuss the smart and sustainable life, work and social engagement.

With IoT and connected devices around us, even on us, there are plenty opportunities to develop smart cities and communities.

Healthcare, active life and well being are among the top drivers in the smart cities today.

Why cities are not like industry and how they innovate?

Data: From Open & Secure to GDPR & Blockchain

Connected devices daily add terabytes of data to all the data already exists. It is a challenge to gather, store, manage, exchange, analyse and make value out of data.

By May 2018 in EU organizations will have to implement the GDPR (General Protection Data Regulation) or else they will face serious consequences.

Are blockchain, encryptions, regulations and standards enough to support the innovation?

How to unleash the value of your data and stay alive?

Industry 4.0 and Digital Transformation

How can companies, especially SMEs effectively overcome the major challenges when implementing the disrupting Industry 4.0? Are these only myths:

1. Lack of experts and knowledge
2. Missing clear ROI and value
3. Reusable proven good practices
4. High cyber security and data risks

What are the technologies, tools and methods applied at the leading I4.0 companies?

Are the SMEs the key for a successful implementation of Industry 4.0?
