Feedback form is now closed.
This symposium will provide a ‘state of the union’ of the MEMS and sensors industry including a look at where the action is today for sensing capabilities across multiple vertical markets and sensor types. Having provided that foundation, what lies ahead in sensing for the remainder of this decade will be covered. Specific topics will include deeper dives into sensing technologies and the actionable information they may provide. Presentations will also cover trends in algorithms and data analytics including machine learning, deep learning and AI to provide end to end system solutions. Attending the pre-conference symposium will provide an excellent snapshot of what MEMS and sensor technologies to pay attention to today and tomorrow.
