Master A New Computing Paradigm

We are entering a new era of digital transformation where robots, software-defined products, humans, and cloud systems are collaborating in real time together within intelligent spaces to enable new human-centric experiences.

Lead Your Teams to an Intelligent, Sustainable and Responsible Future

The emergence and massive dissemination of smart connected objects is creating a new era of digital transformation. Amazon is building new experiences in intelligent warehouses for same day delivery with zero carbon footprint. Kroger uses NVidia Omniverse to reinvent the shopping experiences in their intelligent retail store through state of the art, AI enabled applications and services.

Reducing costs and excess spending, improving customers’ experience and options, attracting and retaining talents are all expected benefits of those new experiences but it will also help to tackle important social issues such as intelligence, sustainability and responsibility.

Designing new human centric experiences involving intelligent spaces, robots, augmented humans and cloud systems are very complex, costly and require new technologies, business and new management approaches.
