Upping the cool factor at InterConnect 2017

We can’t wait for InterConnect 2017, which is taking place in Las Vegas from 19-23 March. If you’re still trying to decide whether to go, we think we have just the thing to persuade you: The Watson IoT Innovation Playroom.

The Playroom is a bit like science fairs you might have taken part in as a kid – lots of great projects, hands-on interaction, and demos a-plenty. All designed to help you get to grips with the wonderful world of IoT.

You’ll get to meet IoT and industry experts from fields as diverse as manufacturing, life sciences, healthcare, distribution, retail, energy & utilities, automotive, aerospace, and oil & gas.

Getting up close and personal with the IoT

Since the Internet of Things is about ‘things,’ the easiest way to experience it is to see them in action. And that’s exactly what the Innovation Playroom is for.

We’ve gathered IoT-savvy Watson IoT partners, customers and IBMers, who’ve brought real hands-on gizmos that you can actually play with to experience the power of Watson IoT live, up close and personal.

In 12 hands-on demos you’ll see a robotic arm, meet Harry the Talking Plant, assemble a smart shelf, work with a weather station, and much more. You’ll see how forward thinkers are using Watson IoT Platform, Blockchain, Watson Cognitive APIs, BlueMix, TRIRIGA, Maximo Asset Management and more to change the way we live and work today.

Tech Talks: The experts’ point of view

There will be a chance to hear from the experts too in a series of 20 minute Tech Talks (think of them as mini TED Talks) around various aspects of IoT hosted in the playroom. There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions or discuss ideas, and time to network over complimentary snacks and a cocktail or two.

The Innovation Playroom is located in the Sienna CDE on the third floor of the Delano, and will be open on:

Monday, March 20, 10:30AM – 4:30PM
Tuesday, March 21, 10:30AM – 4:30PM
Wednesday, March 22, 9:00AM – 4:30PM

We look forward to seeing you there!
