Session description

Join Cisco CTO, Robert Barton for a tour of Cisco’s Innovation Lab.

The Internet is a powerful tool that provides benefits to individuals, communities, and countries alike. When combined with a dose of innovation and the right support, ‘’internet-like’’ technologies give us the ability to tackle and solve key challenges across many, if not all, industry sectors. In 2016, Cisco, the worldwide leader in technology that powers the internet, launched its Country Digital Acceleration program to accelerate countries’ digital transformation agendas. Since then, we have completed more than 1,200 projects in more than 44 countries. This short session will introduce you to this unique program and provide examples of how you can participate and help power an inclusive and sustainable future for Canadians!
