Industry Innovation Day


2017 IPaT Industry Innovation Day

Digital transformation is the profound and accelerating transformation of business activities, processes, and competencies to fully leverage the changes and opportunities of digital technologies and their impact across society in a strategic and prioritized way, with present and future shifts in mind.


The Institute for People and Technology (IPaT) will host its annual Industry Innovation Day on Thursday, April 13th in Tech Square. The event serves to showcase research at IPaT and Georgia Tech as well as highlight the many avenues of collaboration. Industry Innovation Day builds on the success of the previous IPaT industry-oriented event, which we hosted for five years, the People and Technology Forum.

After breakfast, Industry Innovation Day will begin with thought-provoking keynotes and panel discussions on this year’s theme of Digital Transformation. Business leaders, researchers, city officials, entrepreneurs and government and non-profit leaders will examine the transformative impact and value of emerging tools, platforms and technologies, especially in the fields of healthcare and smart & connected communities.
