The indomitable Howard Tullman gave a keynote at the inaugural FUND conference in Chicago recently highlighting the future trends to watch in tech. The lessons were insightful for both new start-ups and companies looking to scale in the fast and crowded tech marketplace. One particularly interesting takeaway relevant to all attending and participating in the upcoming Dublin Web Summit was that "Attention is the new currency". With more than 30,000 investors, companies, entrepreneurs and influencers at this year’s summit – what could be truer?
It is no wonder that Data analytics and IoT is set to have its own stage at this year’s #WebSummit 2015. The buzz terms such as data analytics, data science, big data, fast analytics and real time analytics have become hot topics in which all companies are in a race to the starting point. The journey for data science is only beginning and big data is evolving at such a rate that it is hard to see where it will have evolved to in ten years from now.

Ireland has a long and strong tradition in the fashion and craft industry. Household names such as John Rocha, Philip Tracey, Paul Costelloe and Orla Kiely have helped make Ireland shine on a global stage as a centre of fashion & design. More recently, designers like Simone Rocha, JW Anderson, Sorcha O Raghallaigh and Una Burke have been making headlines worldwide as they dress everyone from Lady Gaga to Alexa Chung to Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movies!
