In its 12th edition, JIAM 2020 has set its exhibition theme as ‘JIAM 2020, the forefront of the Future technology and Master craftsmanship collaboration’. Many industries are transforming themselves in line with the digitalisation of society, by introducing the likes of IoT, big data, and artificial intelligence (A.I.).
