OSLO, Norway & AUSTIN, Texas - 4 May 2021 — Cognite, a leader in industrial innovation, will host its fourth annual global conference, Ignite Talks on September 21-23, 2021. The virtual hybrid event will feature global leaders and innovators dedicated to transforming industry now to meet the carbon net-zero 2050 deadline and create a more innovative, data-driven, sustainable future.
“Time is of the essence as the world races to meet sustainability goals,” said Dr. John Markus Lervik, co-founder and CEO of Cognite. “Getting a grasp on emissions, the environmental footprint, and other sustainability-related metrics is first and foremost a data problem. The purpose of Ignite Talks is to bring leading global voices together who are dedicated to innovative solutions through technology.”
The three-day industrial digitalization conference, co-located in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States, will focus on the innovative technologies that power industries like oil and gas, power and utilities, and manufacturing and enable renewable energy development. Attendees can expect conversations on Industrial DataOps and forward thinking technologies like robotics, artificial intelligence, and data analytics, as well as deep discussion on how to drive profitable sustainability.
“As the energy industry reinvents itself and deploys new technologies, we know that data will be the supercharger for lasting, sustainable transformation,” said Ahmed Hashmi, Senior Vice President of Digital at bp. “We look forward to participating in Ignite Talks again this year, to provide our insight and commitment to sustainable solutions through data and digitalization.”
