This week we heard Sam Palmisano talk about educating people for future jobs, not past jobs. With unreal timing IBM Ireland is attending and taking an active part at the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition in Dublin (14 – 16 Jan).
Now in it’s 46th year, the exhibition is the culmination of a competition that encourages and recognises second level students from right across Ireland, with 500 student exhibitions around 40,000 student visitors.
In addition to the Smarter Planet stand, IBM is taking part in the “Learning Technology for the 21st century” and will be presenting a “Smarter Planet Award” for the project that best exemplifies making intelligent use of data collected from the real world – which is at the heart of making a smarter planet.
Do check out what the Ireland team are doing over on their blog where they are already posting videos and updates from the event as well as the winners of the special award. Or get along tomorrow if you are in the area.
