Hospitality professionals will soon gather for the annual Foodservice Technology Conference (FSTEC), where Mission Data is leading a breakout session on the newest tech coming to the industry. The conference takes place in Orlando, FL, from October 1-3, 2018.
I recently had the opportunity to attend a research conference focused on projects related to computer networking, the IEEE LANMAN conference hosted at George Washington University. Researchers travelled from all over the world to showcase their projects, resulting in a three-day experience comprised of six speaker sessions, a panel, and a demo/poster session. I was particularly drawn to speaker sessions that shared new research in the field of the Internet of Things (IoT), given how much work we do with IoT at Mission Data.
If you’re looking to check the collective pulse of the foodservice industry, the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago delivers. Mission Data attended to meet with industry friends new and old, gauge the landscape of technology products, and learn about the unique challenges and growth opportunities of the current market.
I recently attended the SpeechTEK conference for the first time in Washington, D.C., an event focused on deploying speech-based solutions for business applications. I went to the event with Stu Gavurin, Mission Data CEO, who had attended previously, but for me, SpeechTEK stood out from other conferences in several ways. I attended because I wanted to have a broader understanding of the voice world beyond building consumer-facing skills for Amazon’s Alexa. I do think I achieved my goal, but it took some work.
