With the advent of era of the Internet of things (IoT), innovations arise from the convergence of automobiles and daily necessities with the ICT technology. Not only that, the IoT is becoming actively involved in the areas of environmental management, residence, and energy management, and a new agricultural revolution is expected with the convergence with agricultural sector that was shunned by the traditional industry. The convergence of agriculture and new technologies, in terms of innovation initiatives, is considered an area that would excite interest in not only the developed countries but also developing countries. In particular, the ‘Smart Farm’ project, which is an example of convergence of ICT and agriculture, exemplifies that this new industrial field can contribute immensely in the coexisting development and the cooperation between the developed and developing countries. The ‘Smart Farm’ project is appreciated as an interesting case that demonstrated the possibility of pioneering a new industry through technology convergence of science technology and traditional industry.
This Session will be a platform for the introduction of the ‘Smart Farm’ project of SK Telecom Co. Ltd. as the successful case of the technology convergence, the discussion about the success of other countries, and exchange of the achievements and values of the technology convergence by developed and developing countries and various innovation collaborators.
