Indoor location intelligence: past, present and future

Indoor location information will soon be a commodity, available everywhere/anywhere. Similarly to how GPS changed our way of leaving outdoors, indoor location will soon transform how we shop, visit a hospital or manage a manufacturing plant.

Location intelligence is about "connecting the dot on the map to value added services" for end users. In this talk Iacopo Carreras, co-founder and CEO of Thinkinside a company specialised in location-based services and analytics for physical spaces will go through a short journey on how location intelligence will affect our way of experiencing physical spaces, and on the technologies that will contribute to this.

He will then present how Thinkinside is playing its role in this emerging domain.

Bio: Creative, scrappy entrepreneur, passionate about technology, design and building ideas from scratch. In love with sport and outdoor. Ph.D. in computer science, software developer for a few years, researcher from 2003 until 2012 enterpreneur since 2010. He co-founded Thinkinside in 2015 and is now CEO of the company.
