Innovation Day USA: Driving innovation for the U.S. and the world

Every day, billions of connected devices and machines are bridging more of our real and virtual worlds and changing the way we live, travel, build and work. Join us virtually March 27th to learn how Siemens latest innovations are helping industries from manufacturing to transportation embrace the power of data and lead in a digital and connected world. Hear from global and U.S. technology experts via virtual and interactive demos and discussions on emerging trends and technologies like: Blockchain-Based Microgrids, Additive Manufacturing, Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Robots, Digital Infrastructure, MindSphere – The cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens. Innovation is in Siemens DNA, growing from one idea 170 years ago into a robust digitalization portfolio with a unique combination of software, digital services and MindSphere unmatched across its competitors. And the U.S. plays an integral role—in the last 15 years, Siemens has invested $35B in America, invests $1B annually in R&D, holds 15,000 U.S. patents and nearly 900 invention disclosures, and employs around 50,000 people with approximately 60 manufacturing sites.
