Day 1: The rise of AI and robotics: How will it change the way we live and work
Speaker: Charlotte Han
While the rise of robotics and AI have a huge potential to lift productivity and economic growth, it’s no secret that many jobs, not limiting to the low-skilled positions, will be automated in the near future. It surely means many of us will need to adapt to the life-long learning culture, constantly upgrading our skills, but is it still a good bet to “find a good job” when the modern-day corporations are hiring fewer full-time employees, favoring the more flexible temporary workforce? In this talk, we will examine how job titles may no longer shape our full identity, what skills we will need to acquire in this new world, and why it’s ever more important to build, contribute to and thrive in communities - of humans.
Day 2: AI and the Future of Home Living: trends and opportunities in the times of a pandemic
Speaker: Johann Romefort
With billions of people quarantined at home, the world discovers that while automation has taken over the workplace, the most mundane tasks at home are still bound to our two hands and some elbow grease. Smart Home promised us intelligent living, but all we got was voice assistants listening to our family lives - what went wrong? Having worked with BSH - the leader in home appliances in Europe - and invested in 20 companies over the last 2 years in the Smart Home category, Johann will explore how AI can indeed simplify our daily lives and what the future holds.
