From August 16 to September 1, 2017, several hundreds of experts from science, politics, business, culture and civil society will explore the tensions between “Conflict & Cooperation”.
Focus: Artificial intelligence and revolutionary technologies
More and more tasks previously reserved for humans can now be carried out by robots, algorithms and autonomously learning codes. They can handle enormous amounts of data, understand language, recognise individual people and immediately react to their environment. The advance of new technologies and the inescapable digitisation of society are creating unprecedented possibilities while also raising entirely new questions of ethics, business and security technology. At Alpbach, these topics will be examined by international experts. Be a part of it and join the discussion!
Fabasoft at the Economic Symposium “Conflict and Cooperation”
On August 30, various discussions and working groups will be held at Hauptschule Alpbach. At 3 p.m. Helmut Fallmann(link is external), member of the Managing Board of Fabasoft AG, is inviting you to a breakout session on digitisation, business and security:
How the lack of IT and network security threatens the European digital economy
Digitisation is a controversial phenomenon in which network and IT security play an important role. What types of cooperation are required at the European level to ensure IT and network security for the European Union’s digital single market in order to handle digital conflicts?
The panel of renowned international speakers:
Don’t confuse trying with doing!
On the evening of August 30, a special treat will conclude Fabasoft’s contribution to the Economic Symposium 2017:
From 6:00 to 7:30 PM, Stanford’s leading design thinker Bernhard Roth will explore notions of radical collaboration and user-centred design as a basis for corporate-wide organisational principles in his key note at Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal. Chaired by Sandra Baierl (Careers and Business Editor, Kurier), he will then discuss with Andreas Bierwirth (Chief Executive Officer T-Mobile Austria), Kay Kratky (President and Chief Executive Officer, Austrian Airlines AG), Robert Zadrazil (Chief Executive Officer, UniCredit Bank Austria AG) and Helmut Fallmann which challenges are keeping top executives awake at night and how a change of beliefs helps tackle organisational challenges.
We are looking forward to interesting, inspiring and conflict-solving days at the European Forum Alpbach 2017!
