The 49th edition of the Farnborough International Airshow will host Global Intelligent Systems 2014 (GIS2014), a multi-sector conference and exhibition covering the growing use and demand for intelligent systems in all industries.

At FIA2014 (taking place from 14 -20 July 2014), GIS2014 will absorb the already successful Unmanned Systems Showcase and embrace all sectors where smart technologies has been developed to improve peoples lives.

In advance of FIA 2014, the Global Intelligent Systems brand will launched in July 2013 at the inaugural GIS2013 conference and exhibition.

Taking place in central London on 16-17 July 2013, the first GIS conference will bring together a high-profile list of speakers to discuss and debate emerging technologies, the market drivers and opportunities and adoption by society.

Created in conjunction with ADS, the premier trade organisation for UK Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space industries, GIS2013 will also feature a dedicated exhibition and networking drinks reception.

With Intelligent Systems still very much in its infancy, the decision to bring the event into the Airshow arena was seen as a real opportunity for cross-fertilisation of knowledge and collaboration.

Intelligent devices have already been developed in a number of sectors including healthcare, utilities, homes and building, automotive and aerospace.

From intelligent medical devices, smart meters in homes to improve energy management, applications to improve driver safety in cars to flexible cockpits and voice and gesture controls in aircraft, the convergence of device networking, machine-to-machine communication and the internet means we are moving nearer and nearer to a smart world.

Traditionally, the technology and knowledge has been fragmented across the various sectors, but as we move to a more connected society there is a growing need for value chains across sectors to come together. The GIS conference and exhibition are an opportunity to achieve this and unlock future commercial potential.

Amanda Stainer, Commercial Director for Farnborough International Limited said, The impact of intelligent and autonomous systems technology on our society promises to be far reaching and shape the future world in which we live. We are excited to bring together all expertise in this area in 2013 and subsequently at FIA in 2014 in what we hope to be the birth of a new economy what better location than at Farnborough, the birth place of British aviation, which has shaped the world we live in now.
