This year’s Digital Tech Conference once again brought together over 600 people on November 30th at the Rennes Opera (France). Amazon, Google, Meetic and Mozilla were among the speakers present at this edition dedicated to voice assistants, food and love tech. For the first time, all of the conferences were bilingual.
The success of voice search and voice assistants is now well-established. The trend is growing steadily, with users choosing en masse to make their daily lives easier by using devices such as Alexa, Siri or Google. But this popularity also makes it necessary to consider the security of the personal data – and voiceprints – collected by these devices. Yann Lechelle is the operations director of the company Snips, which offers a voice assistant solution that respects personal data. We asked him a few questions on the occasion of his presentation on November 30th at the Digital Tech Conference in Rennes.
The 4th La Digital Tech Conference is taking inspiration from common practices to devise the future of agriculture and food in particular. On the menu, expert speakers on safety processes, food, waste reduction, etc. linked to digital technology.
The fourth edition of the Digital Tech Conference includes contributions from the leaders of today’s tech scene, examining topics that include the future of Digital Assistance. A major trend at the moment, these voice assistants equipped with AI are already winning users over. Experts from Amazon, Google, Meetic, Mozilla, and the challengers Snips and Adventiel are coming to Rennes to present an analysis of the current situation and the future of these bots, which can be used at the office, in the living room or even on farms.
An unusual profile such as that of Yael Rozencwajg is born out of years of wandering, or out of serendipity – the art of discovering something without really seeking it out, but without leaving everything to chance, by seizing opportunities when they present themselves.
That is how Yael Rozencwajg has operated. After 15 years of assisting major accounts with digitization, she turned her attention to blockchain, artificial intelligence and her first love: connected objects. She chose to focus on digital food, one of the three key topics of the 2018 Digital Tech Conference.
Matching algorithms, singles’ marketplaces, long-distance relationships, virtual sexuality… For the fourth edition of the Digital Tech Conference, we have decided to ponder the technological mysteries of love, a universal topic that concerns us all, as well as a market that is expected to grow to 22 billion euros by 2020. “Love” and “Market”? These two words are strange bedfellows… but are sure to generate interesting discussions on November 30th in Rennes, France!

Blithely discussing robotics and food in the same breath in Bocuse country where lunch-breaks exceeding 45 minutes are the norm, may well raise eyebrows. Nonetheless, we’re salivating at the thought of hearing Philippe Goldman, CEO of Ekim, talk about robots and pizza dough!
