FutureScope Scales New Heights

FutureScope 2019, hosted by Dublin BIC (www.dublinbic.ie) was another roaring success this week, with record numbers of attendances. The team at WhiteLight Consulting love working on this high energy, future focused event. It brings together leaders from the technology ecosystem to share perspectives on the implications of disruptive technologies, providing valuable insights to businesses at all stages of the innovation lifecycle.

FutureScope is Ireland’s number one innovation event and the only conference dedicated to exploring new business opportunities arising from emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, VR, data analytics, IoT and 5G.

A dynamic, fast-paced mix of keynotes, panel discussions, innovation showcases, tech demonstrations, innovation challenges, pitch battles, workshops and structured networking attract start-ups, scale-ups, multinationals, innovative corporates and the investment community. FutureScope really is the perfect platform for identifying mutually beneficial collaborative partnerships.

Con makes a new friend at FutureScope 2019, Pepper the humanoid robot. This Pepper’s artificial intelligence allows her to read emotions and develop empathy. She is the newest member of the team at UCD Innovation Academy, the first time she has been deployed in Irish education.

It was also wonderful to catch up with past finalists from Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur. Fiona Edwards Murphy of Apis Protect, Brian O’Rourke of CitySwifter and Alvan Hunt of Hexafly. It’s always great to catch up with past finalists, to hear their news and share in the excitement of their success.

The people that you meet at FutureScope are a breed apart. They have a curiosity about the world, keen enquiring minds, the ability to collaborate and develop solutions to real world problems. They see the world differently and we’re lucky they do. Ireland’s future is bright with these incredible innovators and we can’t wait to see what next years showcase brings. Roll on #FS20.
