Talking Tech is back; bigger and better than ever

for our sixth instalment in three years.

Talking Tech is an established one of a kind IT event in the South East that truly puts its participants first. Unlike other events, Talking Tech is based on a complete "sales-free" culture. This means you’ll come across no sales vendors or salesman selling you their latest software. What you’ll find is pure information sharing, debate and insight on tech topics that are not only current, but chosen by you, your peers and the participants at each event to cover at the next.

This time around, Kent Showground at Detling in Kent plays host to our event, which is exclusive to senior IT and tech professionals only. This free event is organised by Custodian Data Centres and has topic discussion on security, automation, AI and much more, covered by organisations including Oracle, BT and many more. Our October 2020 event will cover off the topics of The Future of WAN and AI, with main speakers followed by panel discussions - as well as a delicious free breakfast in what is a truly unique event experience. Just check out the videos below for yourself.

AI/Machine Learning: The Evolution of Enterprise AI

Rebecca Vickery

Data Scientist - Holiday Extras

Just as the rise of the internet led to a mass transformation of business and the expectations of consumers, AI and machine learning are fast disrupting the landscape once again. There are growing concerns about how businesses can take advantage of this technology so that they are not left behind, and other concerns too such as how does this impact the future workforce? In this talk, I will share my experiences in embedding AI within a 35-year-old company and how I see AI becoming an essential part of all business functions in the near future. We are at the beginning of a new paradigm in enterprise and I will discuss important learnings from our journey so far in this new fast-evolving world.

Dave will introduce you to one of the largest WAN’s in the South East, in which he helped build a partnership of 28 public and private sector organisations who share the infrastructure, costs and the benefits of a CAS(T) accredited regional network comprising some 1600 sites and 59 PoPs. You will hear how the network was formed, developed, and how it will evolve in the future to further leverage the benefits of a regional WAN.
