The upcoming Infocom World 2023 conference, with the “Diginvest in Greece: New Horizons!” motto, taking place on December 14th, signed by the credibility of Smart Press, will bring forth progress and innovation in the telecommunications and IT sectors, and technology in general.
This year, the conference will be at the crossroads of the past, present and future, as it marks 30 years of mobile telephony in Greece, as well as 25 years of InfoCom World history! The 2nd day (15 December) will be dedicated to Artificial Intelligence (AI World), highlighting its most important aspects, the value of its applications, and the effect it now has on all vertical markets.
With a line-up of highly influential speakers, this year’s Infocom World will once again be a “meeting place” for industry leaders, researchers, policymakers and entrepreneurs, showcasing the transformative potential of connectivity and the future of Telecommunications and IT, with a particular focus on next-generation networks, their applications, cybersecurity, the path to the future, and 6G.
After all, the ICT industry is at a critical juncture, at a time when investment in research, infrastructures and technological development, is becoming a matter of vital importance. And this is because, as the demand for faster, more reliable and secure data transmission increases, the need for significant investments in the construction and upgrade of telecommunications networks also increases.
In addition, to harness the potential of next-generation networks, significant investment is needed, to create an ecosystem of innovative applications and services, that can leverage the infrastructure’s capabilities. From state-of-the-art computing and artificial intelligence, to augmented reality and virtual reality, the development of such applications requires funding, as well as collaboration between providers, enterprises and startups.
Investments in human capital also have their own importance. Diginvest Greece: New Horizons, aims to promote collaboration, encouraging the exchange of ideas, know-how, and research results. Thus, technology development will not only be accelerated, but opportunities will also be provided for a highly skilled, “battle-ready” workforce, to manage the complexities of large projects, networks, and emerging telecommunications technologies.
At the same time, cybersecurity and infrastructure resilience remains a key focus in any ICT-related discussion. As the use of networks increases, so does the potential for cyber-attacks and other digital threats. To deal with them effectively, significant investments in research, advanced threat detection systems, and training programs are required, equipping professionals with the skills to mount an effective defense.
As the world enters a new digital age, the investments made today will determine the foundations on which the Information Technology and Telecommunications landscape of tomorrow will be built.
