Event description
Upward's Industry Meet UP is back for an exploration into Industry 4.0!

About this Event

Technology brought automation to industry in what was known as the third industrial revolution. As we enter the fourth revolution, billed as Industry 4.0, automated technology has come a quantum leap further.

Connected sensors are providing real-time telemetry data. Advanced machine learning models are processing data at scale in the cloud. Artificial intelligence is being deployed at the edge. From manufacturing to smart buildings and smart cities, transformative innovation is happening now.

On Wednesday, November 13th, join Upward and Tallan for an exploration into today's opportunities and the technologies making them possible. The evening will feature a lively panel discussion with some of Hartford’s Industry 4.0 thought leaders, as well as a live demonstration of Industry 4.0 technologies in action.

If you or someone you know is curious about the implications of Industry 4.0 in the workplace or at home, this is the Meet UP for you! Tickets include entrance to the event, food & beverages. Enjoy $10 early bird pricing through Tuesday, October 15th - RSVP today!
