LONDON, March 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Industries are being flooded with data from millions of connected devices. Autonomous vehicles, real-time cities, connected supply chains, smart clothing, bio-embedded sensors and robotic home assistants are happening here and now. The next step will be the use of artificially intelligent systems to make real-time decisions. This will mark the advent of the Cognitive Era in business.

At Frost & Sullivan we believe that every single company, large and small, should be asking itself how the availability of real-time data and artificial intelligence will change its relationships with customers, partners, and competitors and, crucially, its ability to prosper and grow.

The Cognitive Era and its impact on businesses that will transform the future European economy will be the theme of Frost & Sullivan's Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) 2016: Europe. The GIL congress returns to London for its eighth consecutive year on Thursday, 30 June at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, in London. Over 200 industry leaders are expected to convene from all over Europe to explore how Artificial Intelligence will revolutionise business models; monetise data generated by the Internet of Things; drive operational efficiencies; and exploit the connectivity and convergence of once unrelated industries.

"The Cognitive Era will drive change in business models, products/services and industry ecosystems, stemming from the integration of new artificially intelligent products," explains Senior Partner Sarwant Singh. "Business leaders will need to be attentive to this new mindset to develop proactive and predictive business practices."

The summit will highlight top Mega Trends and new business models with specific industry developments, and will review their direct impact on the success of an enterprise.  It will also emphasize the importance of efficiently using a company's current portfolio of digital assets and integrating cognitive technologies to support critical client facing decisions and drive business outcome.
