Natasha Friis Saxberg, CEO of IT-Branchen
Society calls for ethics and sustainable human centered AI
Much as feeling enthusiastic about the awesome possibilities offered by artificial intelligence is natural, developers need to stay alert to potential downsides. For example, we have seen AI used for mass surveillance by totalitarian regimes, for promotion of fake news, and for privacy intrusions. Developing ethical and sustainable AI is an obvious Danish/Nordic window of opportunity.
Business Inside Technology – new business models and the cloud revolution
While novel potent technology is the very visible side of the fourth industrial revolution, real gain for society and companies will most often depend on development of new business models. Among the key concepts discussed will be decentralized ERP systems, do-it-yourself appsData, and not least the cloud revolution: outsourcing, subscribing to Cloud, AI, robotics etc. as a service.
Connecting people with faster network and edge computing
Last year became a turning point for services that support remote work. It suddenly transpired that connectivity is absolutely critical for business continuity in all sectors of society. Keywords here are working at home for real, social media, influencers and communities, faster networks, connectivity and 5G, computing continuum, IoT, edge/fog/cloud computing, HPC, virtual meeting places.
Tomorrow’s Security Threats
In response to COVID-19 lockdowns, many have taken to the home-office. How will this affect cyber-security? Furthermore, professional hackers become still more sophisticated, and both public and private organizations are faced with strict demands for safeguarding sensitive data. Hot issues are IoT/connected devices, edge computing-based supply chains, blockchain technology, how to create a culture of awareness.
Extended reality – new virtual interfaces
Both Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality continue to find new applications in health-tech, learning, psychology, recruitment, and other environments. The entertainment industry has already adapted extended reality in full scale, and VR meetings are likely to become the next step. Let’s look at virtual interfaces for AR, VR, XR, Mixed Reality. And at smart-suits, exo-skeletons, brain-sourcing, shape-changing interfaces.
Future mobility, Robotics and Autonomous Systems
Autonomous systems are present in our work places, urban environments, private dwellings and society. Examples are smart city solutions for better traffic control, biomarkers, and face recognition. Drones have proven valuable for monitoring purposes and imagery, but can also be dangerous if in the wrong hands. Catch up on the latest developments in robotics, automation, and remote control.
Optimize your business with next generation technologies
Practically all organizations and businesses may benefit from application of new digital services, more powerful computers and intelligent data solutions. Data sharing and analytics has become a new recipe for collective progress. Also, an upcoming trend is the use of data streams to support circular economy. Keywords here are blockchain, quantum computing, crowdfunding, and data-sharing.
Open entrepreneurship – turning Science into Business
Often the most radical innovations of the fourth industrial revolution are best suited for new companies dedicated to the task. Danish universities encourage their students and researchers to engage in entrepreneurship and to tech start-up-corporate collaboration, thereby contributing to both social welfare and technological progress.
Digital talents – a window to the future
Danish and international tech companies depend upon human talent to stay competitive. Currently, demand is higher than supply. How can the next generation of digital talents be attracted to the sector? How can we strengthen long life learning? And specifically, given that only 25 % of the tech sector work force is women, how can a better diversity be accomplished?
