Published on: 19th April 2013

Altran is delighted to announce that it is sponsoring Global Intelligent Systems 2013, a new annual event that will explore the full commercial potential of autonomous and intelligent systems across industries. The conference will take place in London on 16 and 17 July 2013. For full information please visit Global Intelligent Systems 2013.

The conference has been organised by Farnborough International Limited and ADS, the trade body advancing UK Aerospace, Defence, Space and Security industries, together with partners KTN and UKTI. Speakers from government, academia and commercial enterprises will provide insight into market development opportunities, commercial drivers, economic impact and societal adoption. With active case study examples and opportunity to discuss and debate some of the key issues surrounding systems or software that operates with any degree of autonomy, the inaugural event looks set to offer some real cross-sector collaboration.

Keith Williams, Group Executive Director of Intelligent Systems at Altran, said, “It is expected that by 2016 there will be 2.6 billion intelligent systems worldwide, and that this rapidly growing market will be worth US$1,400bn. As world leaders in the integration of intelligent systems, we are delighted to offer our support to ADS and Farnborough International Ltd in creating an event that will be central to the vision of the future, as intelligent systems transform our world and enable major technological advances across industries."

Kevin Jones, ADS Director for GIS added, “If we can generate a coherent and UK-wide view, market opportunities for autonomous and intelligent systems will be significant and could generate real growth and value to the UK economy from both a domestic and export perspective – Altran’s support undoubtedly bolsters our objective. The conference programme we have developed offers a great opportunity for cross-sector collaboration – if you are a producer of this technology, GIS2013 is a forum at which to meet stakeholders and potential customers to engage, learn, debate and uncover new markets and business. And if you simply want to learn how the autonomous and intelligent systems can improve your business, GIS2013 will provide you with an exclusive and informed insight.”
