“Silicon Economy” is the synonym for the coming, AI-based platform economy – and the topic of a LogiMAT Trade Forum on Tuesday, 31 May 2022, as part of the International Trade Fair for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management logiMAT from 31 May to 2 June this year. The moderator is Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Michael ten Hompel, Executive Director of the Fraunhofer IML: ” Digital technology is the name of the game, and intralogistics is the playing field. Even the biggest industry players are beginning to realize that you can’t win this game on your own. You need a secure data environment, user-friendly interfaces, and actual standards that are more than just bits and bytes. If the next phase of the digital revolution is to succeed, there’s no time to reinvent the wheel for the umpteenth time. Logistics must rely more heavily on software. The establishment of the Open Logistics Foundation affords us a unique opportunity to work together toward open-source hardware, software, interfaces, and apps.”
In forums in the LogiMAT Arena high-ranking experts from industry and research will be talking about key themes and the latest trends in in-company logistics held.
