How are new and innovative technologies changing the way we work, live and do business?

From artificial intelligence and virtual and augmented reality, to emerging health technologies and fibre optic networks, the future is happening now—right here in Edmonton—and it is local businesses who are leading the way. 

The research and development happening in our capital city is not only enabling us to revolutionize and diversify our economy, but also allows us to evolve how we connect with others to exchange thoughts and ideas, identify and provide cutting edge healthcare solutions and modernize the way we do business transactions and reach new markets—doing so more efficiently and effectively than ever before.

We invite you to hear from a panel of local innovators as they discuss the research and technological advancements that are happening in our own backyard. Hear from these leaders on how their organizations are spearheading innovation in Edmonton and how Edmonton businesses can benefit from these technologies and become innovators in their own industries.

Meet Our Panellists

John Antonio, Chief Strategy Officer, IDX Labs
IDX is continually evolving with changes in technology. What the company did five years ago, it no longer does today; what IDX does today, they will no longer do five years from now. IDX Labs will talk about the ground-breaking work they are doing with the University of Alberta to inspire the next generation with Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Augmented Reality.

Jason Pincock, President and CEO, DynaLIFE Medical Labs
For DynaLIFE, innovation is survival. The healthcare industry continues to inevitably face aging populations, increased demands and scarcity of resources both on people and the government’s ability to fund. DynaLIFE is developing new technologies, new innovation, new processes and new products that allow them to deliver higher value health outcomes for the same or fewer resources. DynaLIFE will discuss the work they are doing with their Health City initiative, their research in microbiology to treat illness and how innovation in health technologies has changed and will continue to revolutionize DynaLIFE’s business and how we receive healthcare. Read about Jason Pincock...
