Digital conference line up takes shape

The ICE has named industry experts Jennifer Whyte, Alain Waha and Anne Kemp (pictured) as respective chairs of the resilience, productivity and behaviour sessions at this month’s Shaping a Digital World conference.

The conference on 13 October is the flagship event in the Institution’s ongoing digital transformation campaign.

Whyte is professor of system integration at Imperial College London.

She said: “The ability of infra- structure to anticipate, adapt to and recover from potential disruption… is a significant practical challenge and a hot-topic in research, especially as we recognise the need for new ways to understand the interconnections between different infrastructure sectors and the added complexity of digital transformation.”

The digital transformation campaign draws from research and opinion across the built environment and from possible disruptors, building on this year’s State of the Nation report.

At the conference, Atkins will present the ICE’s Industrial Digitalisation report, developed with Siemens, IBM and other organisations.

Siemens UK and Ireland chief executive Juergen Maier said the report will offer further detail about “how the UK can best adopt radical new technologies that will boost productivity and create new high tech jobs”.
