Minds + Machines 2015

Since 2012, GE has convened its Minds + Machines annual event as one of the defining moments of the Industrial Internet, the critical infrastructure and industrial sector of the Internet of Things (IoT). This year, as they expand Predix, the cloud platform for the Industrial Internet, Minds + Machines brings together global industry leaders with the best and brightest of the technology world to explore the opportunities and challenges of the Industrial Internet.

One of the biggest opportunities brought by the IoT also poses its biggest challenge — the exponential growth of data stored in silos that aren’t easily accessible or referenced across the enterprise.
