Yosef Harb
14:40 – 15:00

Normally medical applications are developed in a hospital. One of the challenges in a hospital is that things move at a completely different slower pace. As a tech company you are used to moving in a fast pace and having access to a lot of data in order to develop algorithms. How do we move as fast as we can without “breaking” anything? We have to be very careful and take considerate steps. I will also share our journey and our learnings for developing a medical application technology using some of the principles of tech companies.

With autonomous cars, humanoid robots, and Alexa-everywhere, we are entering a new era of human-machine interaction. As smart devices are opening their eyes, enabled by embedded cameras, they start to see, observe, and learn from the people around them. What will our car say when it sees us angry and distracted? How can we trust the the robot that cares for our children? We will be exploring how the future might look like when machines can understand and respond to our feelings and behaviors... and maybe even develop their own feelings.

Self-Sovereign Identity: Take control of your ID
Ted Oorbals
15:50 – 16:10
icon

Self-Sovereign Identity empowers people to have control of their identity and enables the user to easily share and revoke access to their information at any time.
Identity is now entering the next stage of its evolution. However, Self-Sovereign Identity is in its infancy. This is why all current trends in data privacy regulation, technology and public opinion are in favour of restoring the control of information to individuals. Self-Sovereign Identity platforms are poised to provide people with that opportunity and will eliminate identity fraud.
In this session, Ted Oorbals will describe why national governments and big online parties like Google, Amazon and Facebook are unable to create this Self-Sovereign Identity platform on their own and how the “system” currently works without us being aware of it. It will be discussed how a new industry standard could be created with all these parties and other stakeholders together, and how it could truly guarantee the interest of the individual. A new technological standard that gives back full privacy and control to the individuals regarding their information, and how they can even commercialise it through one single mobile app that provides them with control and access to any online location.

Have you every asked yourself the question 'What if it's true? What if we now have all solutions at hand today to reverse the environmental crisis?'. Conscious business has never been as accessible as it is now - technology and innovative business models give us all opportunities not only to have a positive impact on nature and people, but to build thriving business. We don't have to choose between business and sustainability anymore - Circular Economy makes it possible and the earlier organisations embed it, the bigger advantage they can build.

In a time of disrupting changes, increasing complexity and interconnections, understanding how to navigate potential future developments and how to influence them responsibly is one of the most important skills to master. - How do we exercise this skill? How do we educate the youth, institutions, companies, and citizens about the future and the role of emerging technologies? - Thinking critically about the future is, in fact, crucial and we can do it every day. But how does it work and which are the fundamental ingredients we can use? - Finally, learning to master a sense of the future is the best way to participate in making the future accessible to everyone, in making it open source.

Education is a theme that we all come across, almost on a daily basis, throughout our lives. From an early age, individuals educate themselves both from an academic perspective but also from a skills perspective using formal, such as a school curriculum, and non-formal methods, such as specialised courses. Even though desire to learn something new may be running high the target-level of knowledge is not always achieved for various reasons. In this talk, we show some insight into the possible reasons and how we can tackle today’s problems using today's and tomorrow's disruptive technology in the Artificial Intelligence space.

My presentation will focus on the collections industry which is anything but sexy. Unfortunately, it is also an industry with a really bad image yet technology can help to add transparency as well as a human side to the business. As much as people may think everything will become digital and we’ll soon be using digital currencies such as Bitcoin, the reality is a bit different. People will continue making purchases using credit cards and purchasing houses using debt for quite some time to come. Splash in some machine learning and artificial intelligence and you can make collections sexy again.

How we can redesign human and economic systems so that social impact and financial returns are aligned?
How new types of public private partnerships can solve seemingly intracable problems?
The six sins of social impact
The seven symbols of successful entrepreneurship
The three secret hacks for how to be innovative

In this keynote, Dr. Nat Ware will make the case, based on his entrepreneurial journey founding two successful companies, his Oxford PhD academic research, and his personal experiences, that we can, should and must progress as a society from a binary model of capitalism and charity (Capitalism 1.0), beyond social entrepreneurship (Capitalism 2.0), to systems entrepreneurship (Capitalism 3.0). As Nat will explain, too often people view capitalism as good or bad, without realizing that capitalism is what we make of it and how we design it. We can make it so that the profitable thing to do is also what achieves desirable outcomes when it comes to health, education, and the environment. In other words, we can innovative at a systems level and create a pragmatic utopia. In this talk, Nat will reveal what he has discovered are "the six sins of social impact," "the seven symbols of successful entrepreneurship," and "the three secret hacks for how to be innovative." Knowing this is important because the fourth industrial revolution is upon us. If we don't prioritize collaboration over competition, innovation over intellect, and resourcefulness over resources, AI and robotics will soon make humans substitutes not complements. Prepare to be entertained, and challenged, and inspired.

The Magic of the Here and Now - The Good Life in Exponential Times
Christian Schmickler
14:50 - 15:10

Philosophy and an extensive body of research in Positive Psychology point to several factors that determine “The Good Life”, i.e., a life that most people perceive as yielding persistent happiness and contentment. Those factors include the perception of meaning, autonomy, relatedness, competence, as well as the ability to explore the magic of the very moment.
Technology has the potential to make a significant contribution to the fulfillment of many of those factors. However, some digital trends and the taste of exponential development (alias VUCA) also seem to counteract the actualization of these aspects.
In this talk, we will shed some light on current trends from the perspective of Positive Psychology and determine what aspects need our close attention and re-adjustment in the pursuit of societal eudemonia.

Most people in life are, by nature, risk averse. Starting the journey of entrepreneurship therefore goes against our natural instincts. As brave as it may sound, the truth is that it is often not as fun as most books might suggest, leaving entrepreneurs feeling exposed and vulnerable.
1) What is impostor syndrome and how does it translate into entrepreneurship?
2) What is your risk level (to imposter syndrome) and how can it affect your success?
3) How can you tip the balance towards productive development?

Entrepreneurship has always had the potential to revolutionise society for the better – but not until society revolutionises itself. Understanding your own psychological behaviours - both positive and negative - and harnessing them to achieve a greater level of psychological flexibility is one of the many steps towards this revolution.
