The allotted space will provide experience with IoT technologies. The laboratory will identify participants and their journeys, generating interactions and insights through a virtual assistant. This will be possible through the integration of IBM's Watson IoT platform with Synergy systems.

According to Maurício Strasburg, Synergy's CEO, the initiative seeks to prepare executives for the concepts of Industry 4.0 and Hospital 4.0, for example, which represent a conceptual evolution in the use of advanced technologies in business. "We are partners in this initiative," he explains, "and will donate equipment from Impinj so the Dom Cabral Foundation can offer education on what RFID and the IoT are."

The new lab will be the first step for fully connected environments in which participants can undergo experiences throughout the FDC campus. The concept of gamification will be introduced to participants, who will receive "points" for taking part and interacting in space activities. This experience will be based on IBM's blockchain platform.

Among the technologies available at the Tree Lab is Watson, IBM's cognitive computing platform for business. Via a virtual assistant that will use voice interaction with natural human language, FDC's participants will be able to ask questions and then study information about specific activities and topics during their courses.

Watson will be continuously trained, and will bring constant technological updates to the topics covered by participants in their classes. "IBM understands that the leader of the future must be a transformation agent, and that technology is the driving force behind this innovation," says Luigi Liguori, IBM Brazil's chief technology officer. "In this partnership, we will present the most advanced methodologies and technologies to prepare these future leaders."
