22nd century already available in the Polish Pavilion
The Polish ICT Week is on its way in the Polish Pavilion at EXPO 2015 in Milan. It is organized by the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development in cooperation with the Ministry of Administration and Digitization as well as the Ministry of Economy. Each visitor to the exposition held in the Polish Pavilion has a chance to touch, test, and experience the most interesting, intelligent technologies which are presented by eight Polish companies including Digital Core Design, Game Technologies, Ifinity, InPhoTech, MGGP Aero, Sportovia, OMNI3D and OORT. On October 13 the exposition was accompanied by an unusual conference titled “Towards the 22nd century with Polish new technologies” participated by Italian capital investors interested in establishing cooperation with Polish suppliers of modern teleinformation technologies as well as Italian and Polish journalists.
The conference including Polish start-up entrepreneurs commenced with Marcin Marjański, director of the Polish EXPO Pavilion 2015, and Ewa Graniewska, director of the Department of European Funds Coordination in the Ministry of Administration and Digitalization. Afterwards, Ewa Szulc, project manager of Web.gov.pl in the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development, concentrated on bringing closer the topic of Polish start-up ecosystems and the ways the Polish government supports young companies. She also announced the second edition of the ICT Summit conference, which is going to take place as the Startup Summit on December 3-4 at the PGE National Stadium in Warsaw.
The presentations given by the ICT representatives of the enterprises which present themselves during the Polish ICT Week provided a better insight into the specifics of the technological solutions offered, their usefulness for enterprises, corporations and governmental institutions as well as their usefulness for everyday life of their users.
Piotr Kosmala, Owner of SPORTOVIA, elaborated on mobile health care technologies, which have been created by a team of programmers, professional sportsmen, coaches, and nutrition experts. The technologies make it possible to manage your trainings, analyze your progress and apply a proper diet.
3D printing has been one of the fastest-developing technologies recently. Konrad Sierzputowski, Member of the Board and Chief Technology Officer at Omni3D, talked about how it changed the industrial sector on the basis of the 3D Factory 2.0 – Production printer. It is distinguishable by its outstanding printing precision which is so required in the case of industrial applications. He also emphasized the fact that the 3D printing technologies become highly specialized depending on the industry they are used in. Moreover, he added that industrial applications of the 3D print are considered to have the greatest potential, which is contrary to what has been thought so far, meaning household applications.
MGGP Aero presented an interesting solution. Based on oblique aerial imagery, the technology creates a dynamic map which allows assessing the incline of roofs in terms of their photovoltaic installations and the assets of investment grounds. In this case, the technology is mostly taken advantage of by local governments. Nevertheless, it may also be useful for architects and engineers dealing with land use planning. The advantages of such a mapping project were presented during the conference by Witold Kuźnicki, Key Account Director at MGGP Aero. The future of ICT technologies belongs to advanced optical fibre photonic structures which are taken advantage of in innovative telecommunication networks.
Barbara Wajnchold, Project Manager at InPhoTech, talked about new materials as well as the development and optimization of special optical fibre production technology. The future also belongs to intelligent items, which are designed for everyday use and online communication between the user and the item as well as between the items themselves, without the interference of men.
Krystian Cieślak, Chief Marketing Officer of Ifinity, talked about the development of the Internet of Things and the influence the processes have onto our surroundings. The company is famous for their Virtualna Warszawa project; however, it presents the Geos at Milan EXPO. It is an operating system for business and governmental institutions used for creating indoor navigation and managing smart sensors. Such sensors have been used in the Polish Pavilion at EXPO 2015, for instance.
Tomasz Ćwienk, PR Manager at Digital Core Design which is considered to be an expert company in terms of developing the architecture of IP Core processors, invited you to explore the virtual world as well. The company can boast their DQ80251, which is world’s fastest processor. In Milan, however, the company presents Poland’s first 32-bit processor D32PRO which is provided in the form of a source code.
We wish to invite you to explore the Polish innovation at EXPO 2015. The exposition of the Polish ICT enterprises presenting the latest technological achievements in a way that is accessible to an average user will be available until October 18.
