Our Autumn 2015 series explores the role of international partnerships of various types (joint development projects, M&A, corporate VC, etc.) in developing advanced intelligent systems. An intelligent system can be defined as a complex technology combination that integrates relatively sophisticated data analysis with some learning function or real-time environmental adaptability. Distinguished speakers from industry and government will showcase examples with at least one Asia partner in domains such as IOT (Internet of Things), autonomous vehicles and other robotics, smart wearable devices, and next generation energy and transportation systems.
