Rootstack was present at the Tech Connect World Innovation Conference and Expo, which was held in the city of Washington DC from June 13 to 15, being the first time it has been held in person since the pandemic.
For more than 20 years, the TechConnect World Innovation Conference and Expo have connected the best-applied research and early innovations from universities, labs, and startups with end-users and industry prospectors. TechConnect World Innovation 2022 event includes the annual SBIR/STTR Innovation Conference, AI TechConnect and TechConnect Technical Program, more than 35 world-class technical symposiums, and the Nanotech Conference Series, the largest and longest-running nanotech event in the world.
This event was designed so that the different members, companies, and organizations from various sectors will meet to show the innovations in which they are working to generate an impact with new technologies.
David Ramírez, a Business Developer at Rootstack, was representing the company and said “The event is divided into sectors, each sector represented an important industry in the supply chain of our planet. One of the sectors focused on how to improve the materials that are used for different purposes, another on manufacturing, efficient energy, sustainability, there were exponents of biotechnology, another on artificial intelligence and another on business.”
In this conference, the aim was to connect innovators with possible investors or suppliers for their technologies and to be able to carry out these projects. The event had approximately 250 exhibitors, about two thousand innovators, and about a thousand prospects for these projects. Basically, it is expected that 3.5 billion dollars in funds will be raised for the projects presented and can be carried out efficiently.
Some of the companies that stood out for participating were Basf, Atrium Capital, and Lockheed Martin, in addition to several federal agencies of the North American government.
Ramírez commented “among the things that are worth noting about the conference was the strong orientation that some developers have towards NodeJS technology for their software, as well as the high use of artificial intelligence in the medicine and health sector for early detection. of diseases”.
In addition to NodeJS, the use of Python for artificial intelligence and machine learning systems was clearly noted at the Tech Connect World Innovation Conference, as well as a large number of personal health applications and cybersecurity more focused on hardware than on software, that is, focused on protecting against attacks against critical hardware infrastructure.
