Rethink IT ThinkTank
June 6-7, 2018
Exponential development in information and communications technologies means that the provision and analysis of data will become a free basic service in the future. Consumers will expect to enjoy fast data connections and receive accurate real-life recommendations everywhere at all times. Within the foreseeable future, simple data transfer or information services will cease to be profitable.
So where will all of this take us? Speech-, gesture-, and though-control systems will replace our keyboards. Our smartphones will disappear. "Machine to machine" communication, smart homes, and smart cities will open up new opportunities. But: What will this future of AI interaction mean for our culture, our society, for our everyday lives?
Changes happening outside the world of IT will decisively shape future business models for providers in the industry. The mass use of artificial intelligence will become the greatest challenge of the near future. Even today Google, Facebook, and Amazon view themselves as "AI companies." Deep learning and machine learning are securing the foundation for the successful revenue models of tomorrow. Blockchain data transfer will become a normality. Cryptocurrencies will replace money as we know it today.
We are extremely excited about answering these questions together with you and other participants. Together, we want to develop visions for the future world of IT technologies in the setting of a dedicated think tank. This think tank will be a neutral platform for companies in the DACH region where future trends and strategies can be discussed and developed into joint projects. As a member of our think tank, we invite you join us twice per year for a one-and-a-half-day think tank session. The result of these meetings will be concrete projects that are then realized by think tank members.
