MTL connect 2020: 5 Pavilions

MTL connect aims to look across the board at the main questions related to digital development, focusing on its economic, social, cultural and environmental impacts in various sectors of activity.

<MTL> Cybersecurity & Digital Identity

MAY 19, 2020

The Cybersecurity and Digital Identity sector has been making headlines regularly in recent times. The sector is evolving at breakneck speed to continually adapt to new threats.


<MTL> A.I., IoT & 4.0

MAY 20, 2020

Rapid advances in artificial intelligence are impacting our daily lives and all sectors of activity. Its ability to manage and process a huge amount of data drives companies to invest heavily in A.I. and IoT to gain or maintain a competitive edge in the new industry 4.0.


<MTL> FinTech

MAY 21, 2020

The financial sector is experiencing unprecedented disruption. At the same time, the global financial technology industry is growing rapidly, supported by both innovative start-ups and major technology players.


<MTL> City of the Future

MAY 22, 2020

The city of the future is upon us. Two out of three people will probably live in cities or other urban centers by 2050, according to United Nations data. This trend creates new challenges regarding population displacement, conflict, environmental impact, aging population, mobility, housing, new forms of governance, and so on.


<MTL> Creativity | ISEA2020

FROM MAY 19 TO 24, 2020

Founded in the Netherlands in 1990, ISEA is an international non-profit organization fostering interdisciplinary academic discourse and exchange among culturally diverse organizations and individuals working with art, science and technology.

For ISEA2020 we ask: Why sentience? Why and how does sentience matter?
