In the new era of intelligence, it is imperative to come out with witty strategies to tap emerging opportunities and address associated issues. MIC Forum, one of the must-go tech events in Asia held by MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute) - a Taipei-based government think tank under III (Institute for Information Industry) - will bring you forward-looking strategic analysis with latest research findings, and six technology megatrends: Future Mobility, Artificial Intelligence, 5G Telecommunication, Immersive Reality, Internet of Things and Blockchain. These six megatrends will likely to be the backbone for innovative business models in the intelligence arena.
