Suzhou, China, Nov. 2, 2018 – Foundation AI attended Advantech’s IoT Co-Creation Summit, which was held on Nov. 1 and 2 at the Suzhou International Expo Center in Suzhou, China. Advantech’s first Global IoT Summit attracted more than 6,600 attendees from industries including Manufacturing, Smart Cities, Retail, Logistics, Healthcare, and Energy. The summit had over 100 in-depth discussion seminars and 170 booths highlighting different collaborations in the IoT space.
Advantech has acknowledged that full IoT solutions require collaboration between partners with complementary skillsets. A complete solution might require subject matter experts, sensors, sensor nodes, gateways, specialized processors, cloud providers, software developers, and of course data science expertise. Advantech is fostering collaboration in the IoT space, arguing that it is much more effective for companies to work together to deliver what it refers to as Solution Ready Packages than try to amass the all the expertise needed inside a single firm.
