known for being one of the most informative and sought-
after international forums in the geospatial industry.
Geospatial World Forum 2018 will establish the
1000 + Organizations

connection between geospatial technology and the Fourth


Industrial Revolution (4IR), a technology revolution, which will
transform the way the world functions. The event will transport
you to the era of the 4IR through informative sessions and
stimulating discussions. The platform will also host five events
300 + Speakers

conducted today. This also means that citizens will demand for smarter
infrastructure, smarter utilities, smarter transportation and ultimately
smarter and sustainable cities.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution means more than just technology.
It calls for a transformation of our entire ecosystem. Geospatial and
location technologies are playing a key role in this. With geospatial
sensors being deployed everywhere and spatial data becoming big
data through its volume and velocity, Geo4IR will be a wave that the
geospatial industry won’t be able to miss out on.

Convention
THEME: COLLABORATIVE CO-EXISTENCE AT THE FOREFRONT OF 4IR
The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is considerably altering customer expectations,
and demanding product enhancement at every level. Evolving technologies make

of business assets more flexible, while data and analytics change the way they are maintained.
This calls for a more inclusive and collaborative approach in order to address the

leaders and diverse uncertainties this revolution is bringing with it. A collaboration of businesses,
assets and people along with a co-existence of conventional and innovative systems
is inevitable. The geospatial industry needs to perceive this as an increasingly useful
policy makers response to the competitive pressures in a global economy. GeoBuiz Summit will be
the perfect platform to discuss the role of collaborative co-existence in geospatial

Enter the world of


possibilities with AI & IoT

THEME: DISRUPT OR BE DISRUPTED


The emerging paradigm of IoT has created both new smart services and
economic opportunities for industries, businesses and communities. The IoT
technology is revolutionizing healthcare, energy, security and e-governance
systems by taking connectivity, data mining and communication to the next
level. As more and more devices get interconnected via IoT, the sheer volume of
data being created will also increase. We’re talking about possibly 25 gigabytes
of data per hour! Thanks to AI, valuable insights from this chunk of data can
be accessible. Cities can predict accidents and crimes, doctors can make faster
and accurate diagnosis, industries can optimize productivity through predictive
asset maintenance, and self-driving cars can communicate. The possibilities are
pretty much endless for businesses and industries to take advantage of.

WHAT WILL BE DISCUSSED?


— Emerging Integrated Industry Solutions: Merging of IoT, AI and
Analytics
— A Connected World View & the AI Revolution
— Disruptive Power of IoT that impacts Businesses and Industries:
