MathWorks, the leading developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists, successfully concluded the 8th edition of its annual conference, MATLAB EXPO. The EXPO, one of India’s premier events for research and engineering communities, was hosted in Bangalore, Pune and Hyderabad on the 19th, 24th and 26th of April 2018 respectively.
The EXPO featured presentations and workshops by MathWorks technical professionals and customers on a broad range of topics and applications of MATLAB and Simulink. Engineers from Honda, NXP, L&T Technology Services and Tata Steel presented their success stories about how MATLAB and Simulink are helping them innovate and address today’s most difficult engineering challenges. Michelle Hirsch from MathWorks presented the keynote address entitled ‘Are You Ready for AI? Is AI Ready for You?’ The EXPO brought together engineers, scientists, and researchers to learn more about MATLAB and Simulink. The exhibition area showcased solutions from MathWorks partners.
Commenting on the event, Sunil Motwani, industry manager at MathWorks, said, “We see MATLAB EXPO as a platform where engineers get a glimpse into how leading companies are using MATLAB and Simulink to constantly improve and innovate their services. In this year’s Expo, participants showed more interest in ‘Data Analytics’ and ‘Robotics and Autonomous Systems’ tracks. Customer presentations demonstrated pioneering usage of MATLAB and Simulink to develop complex systems for a range of commercial and defense applications. Through our solutions, we look forward to enabling more customers to showcase their success stories in the coming years.”
Added Hirsch, “We are happy about the success of MATLAB EXPO 2018 in all three cities. Today, when enterprises are gearing themselves up for Industry 4.0, events like our EXPO serve as a venue for innovators, scientists and industry experts to come together and explore the latest in technology solutions. This year, more than 2,500 MATLAB and Simulink users gathered at the EXPO which signifies the growing customer base in India. This is the third year we are hosting the EXPO in three cities across the country and we are very pleased by the response from our users.”
