DeepSense Discovery Session – Port of Halifax
April 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ADT
The Port of Halifax is a regional economic engine, generating 15,000 jobs and contributing over $1.97 billion in economic impact.
While data and collaboration are required for everything from day-to-day operations and long-term planning, data within industry partners has remained siloed and lacking in globally adopted standards, hurting productivity and stunting innovation. That said, the shipping world is going through a period of digital transformation.
Join us to hear from Andrew Black, Director Strategic Technology at the Port of Halifax. Andrew will speak to port’s commitment to data transparency through the Port Operations Centre. He will also speak to the digital transformation of the port community, the challenges of working with a wide range of partners, and how the port prepared for a world where blockchain, IoT and AI are increasingly common.
