After the huge success of the first new.New Festival in 2016, CODE_n is back with the second edition. Once again, GFT is a major partner of the event.

This year the festival will take place in Stuttgart, Germany´s industrial stronghold. A perfect opportunity for GFT to show state of the art business and latest tech cases.

Explore the DNA of innovation

The new.New Festival celebrates innovation by bringing together everyone who is  passionate about tech and entrepreneurship -  and embraces digital transformation opportunities.

This year´s motto will be Intelligence X.0 – AI for industry and humans with the following sub-topics:

  • In Machine Intelligence we focus not only on robotics, but also look at technologies such as machine learning, deep learning, neural networks, and natural-language processing.
  • Beyond Reality is related to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality as well as digital twins.
  • Rounding out the field of digital trends, Cryptographic Trust is all about blockchain and its various areas of application, edge computing, and cybersecurity.

To fit in with the overarching CODE_n themes, GFT will promote the four currently most relevant technologies of artificial intelligence, blockchain, data analytics and cloud. Above all, we will further present new insight about industry 4.0, enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT) which places IT right at the centre.
