This forum highlights the latest innovations and developments in the fields of academic research, focuses on the exchange of experiences among experts and researchers regarding the opportunities and challenges of the Internet of Things and discusses ways to consolidate it in service of communities and humanity at large.
Regarding the second forum, Dr. Adel Smeda, Expert, represented his Sector and gave a presentation where he stressed the importance of adopting policies that support the ethics of scientific research, innovation and artificial intelligence.
