Examples include artificial intelligence in the industry; Internet of Things in agriculture, social area, and healthcare projects; cryptocurrencies; cloud services.
Join us in a trying to answer some of the main questions around the development and use of data-driven technologies. Are these new disruptive technologies:
- The basis for the reconstruction of the economy, and for opening new profitable markets?
- New challenges for the state when it comes to governance and legislative regulation?
- Do we need a higher level of understanding of these technologies by the society? Will the labour market need to reform?
- Will they help in creating a new generation of professionals? If so, how can we get there?
We will discuss new opportunities and limitations of data-driven technologies in SEE. Consider business cases from market participants, and also discuss legislative initiatives that support and/or restrict these processes.
