Economy & Politics

The World of 2030 – the new economic environment and global political players. In a comprehensively digitalized world, tasks designed by humans can be completed in a matter of nanoseconds. But what if the machine takes over the ‘thinking’ and sets its own tasks? Self-driving cars may be on the tip of everyone’s tongue right now, but digitalized tools that can draw logical and independent conclusions using complex algorithms have already become everyday reality in many sectors. Search engines, online translation tools, data mining, stock market analyses and forecasting, Big Data information gathering for target marketing, machine learning, intelligent voice control on smartphones, humanoid robots and social bots are just a few common applications which are based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). It therefore comes as no surprise that our lifestyle and the economic environment are also changing at an equally bewildering pace. The demands on global industry and society leaders to keep track of this rapid transformation that constantly requires new thinking, new partners and above all change management are greater than ever before. Our speakers and experts focus on the positive and negative effects on the economy, new work experience, jobs and society. Premium Speakers presents influential international experts and thought leaders as well as entrepreneurs, start-up founders, CEOs, researchers and consultants from both digital and analogue worlds.
