Description

Have you ever had a dream that seemed impossible? Have you ever tried to surpass your limits?

This event will showcase different technologies and how they are changing the world, geared towards the road to commercialization in artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data. With amazing speaker panels, keynote and vendor showcase, this promises to be a breaking ground for the future of innovation.

When doctors told race car driver Sam Schmidt he would never move his arms or legs again, he didn’t stop dreaming. Fast forward fifteen years, and with innovative thinking from Arrow Electronics, Sam is behind the wheel and on the race track once more, driving by simply moving his head. The SAM (Semi-Autonomous Motorcar) car is innovative not because of any ‘new’ technology, but because of a new way of thinking.

The future of innovation rests in the ability to create something novel, and also in the ability to create a new way of putting things together. On July 13, Mississauga’s Research Innovation Commercialization (RIC) Centre is partnering with Arrow Electronics to host “Driving Dreams” at University of Toronto Mississauga with ICUBE, the on-campus startup accelerator. The event features the SAM car created for guest speaker Sam Schmidt.

Join us to drive your dreams forward!

The Driving Dreams conference focuses on value creation for Industry 4.0. How will your business adapt to technological changes? Be inspired by ideas and information from industry experts featured as:

  • Keynote speakers: motivating speakers like quadriplegic Sam Schmidt, former IndyCar driver, fulfilling his passion through unparalleled assistive technology developed by Arrow Electronics
  • Panel discussions: engaging industry professionals discuss topics such as AI, big data, IoT and sensors in the next 24 months including Marcellino Gemelli from Bosch and Paul Smith from Xerox Research Centre of Canada
