Robotics Facility Tour and Ethics of Technology Table Discussion

Achieving digital relevance requires so much more than providing technology solutions.  Learn about the investments that manufacturing and distribution leaders are making in the underlying marketing, sales, supply chain, and governance capabilities required of a modern digital business.  We will share how to determine your desired maturity and the results you can expect.  Focused on practical examples grounded in real world constraints, this session will explore what you can do to get started or go faster.


Please join us for this very different and very exciting topic that brings a completely new way of thinking about marketing and how it is an integral part of the entire organization.  It is about how IT and the business can work together to create a competitive advantage in marketing.

This is going to be a fun one; interactive and truly different SIM event. We have the opportunity to tour the Transnetyx facilities. In 2004 Transnetyx became the first company in the world that offered automated genotyping system. Today, Transnetyx has genotyped more than 30 million samples in 24 or 72 hours with 99.97% accuracy, and introduced a full suite of complementary services, including Genetic Monitoring, Microbiome Analysis, Transnetyx Tissue, and the Colony + AMI software.
But that’s not all. Also planned is a dynamic and interactive table discussion focusing on the Ethics of Technology: Topics include -
  • Autonomous driving cars – AI decision making in catastrophic accident events. Do we want decisions to be made for us during critical life and death situations? 
  • Drones with AI technology and weapons – Outfitted with tasers or more deadly weapons so that police do not need to be in danger. This is actually being reviewed in Congress. Should technology make decisions about deadly situations?
  • Robotics to replace lower wage jobs – We’re already seeing examples of this in retail, service and warehouse jobs. The question is what about the people that technology is displacing and what is society’s obligation to them?
