Titled "New Digital Horizons: Connect, Create, Innovate", the second edition of the event is being jointly organised by Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and other government departments. The aim behind IMC2018 is building ideas, sharing knowledge and best practices, forming lasting industry relationships, fostering commercial opportunities, showcasing game changing mobile technology and product trends, providing sectoral insights, industrial solutions, case studies and workshops. The biggest ICTevent in South Asia, comprising of conclave and exhibition will include ministerial and partner programs in Digital India, Smart City, emerging technologies, Make in India projects, skill harmonisation, business innovation and knowledge sharing etc. There will be a technology showcase offering a glimpse into virtual reality, connected cars, m-health, smart wearables, smart home, artificial intelligence, drones, robotics, smart energy, internet of things, block chain, bitcoin, Machine Vision, Cloud Computing Holography, among others. The three day event will cover a wide array of topics, including but not confined to emerging technologies to new digital ecosystems, m-education, digital marketing to e-health, 5G and retail.
Does your mopping robot or your food processor have names? Do you ascribe a character to them? Unless you're a robot yourself, you probably do. The entire history of engineering has been about making the most human-like machines possible. We humans are hardwired to process social interactions, so we subconsciously expect machines to be at least somewhat human.

The last few decades have witnessed innovations in modern medicine, science and technology at a much faster rate than at any time before in history. A large portion of the credit goes to computers, for helping us solve problems more efficiently and therefore at a faster pace. Most recently, this has included the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning as well as neural networks that can simulate human thought patterns. They can then apply their more efficient brains to issues that desperately require resolution, many of which are in STEM fields like medicine or cryptography.
As the sun rises on 2017, a highlight of this New Year will be the gathering strength of the cloud. If the big question posed by businesses and their CIOs in 2016 was whether they should migrate to the cloud; in 2017 the question will be what is the best way to get there. A recent IBM survey of more than 1,000 C-suite executives from 18 industries found that almost every company we surveyed is using cloud, but only in pockets of their business. At the same time, nearly half of workloads - or 45% - are expected to remain on-premises with dedicated servers. As businesses continue to benefit from integrating their on-premises infrastructure with the cloud, they are also increasing their investments in new workloads on public clouds.
