Keynote 4: An Intelligent Future for All

Industry 4.0

Date & Time

Monday, 25 Feb

17:00 - 18:30


Hall 4 - Auditorium 1


The confluence of a number of significant technologies, including AI, hyper-connectivity, cloud and big data, has created a disruptive and dynamic industrial, economic and social environment, namely the fourth industrial revolution. No industry, and therefore company, will be unaffected by this new paradigm. The first part of this keynote will see two of the world’s largest companies and biggest brands Daimler & Mercedes Benz and Microsoft discuss how they are managing and leading this global digital transformation. Industrial disruption on this scale, is obviously not in isolation, economies, societies, countries and regions are effected. The second part of this keynote will exam how technology can be both a democratising force by providing economic and social access to billions, as well as crucial in preventing and managing humanitarian disasters, but conversely has the potential to increase the digital divide and further centralise economic and political power. The second part of this keynote will look out how private companies and governments need to work together to ensure that technology is the inclusive force for good it has the potential to be. Ensuring an intelligent future for all.
