ELIN HAUGE

Are you tired of hearing about a distant future where robots rule the world, humans are mere servants, and we are all subject to the whims of a ubiquitous artificial intelligence?

 

Let’s put those nasty fairy tales aside for now and discuss what is possible here and now. Let’s talk about how mathematics applied to large amounts of data can automate processes, completely change how you do business, and fuel innovation of new products and services. As a business leader and decision-maker, having a basic understanding of artificial intelligence should be as compulsory as having access to a computer.

 

Audience takeaways:

  • Concrete understanding of what artificial intelligence actually entails, including references to and explanations of recent developments.

  • Real-life examples that are relevant for your industry.

  • Recommendations for what you as a leader and decision-maker should focus on to realize value from AI applications, ensure responsible application, and make AI an integral part of your business

Artificial intelligence is probably the most disruptive technological development in human history, and it is ubiquitous; from the face recognition on your smartphone to advanced public surveillance, from food production to medical research, from online shopping to human-like image and text generators. In addition, other emerging technologies such as the internet of things, blockchain, and virtual reality complement and interact with artificial intelligence to create even more immersive, complex, and disruptive products and services.

 

Most business professionals think that AI is really exciting and cool. However, when confronted with our willingness to trust algorithms to make decisions about ourselves and on our behalf, we become much more reluctant and sceptical. How can companies approach the collection and algorithmic use of data in a way that builds and maintains trust? How can compliance with new AI regulations be ensured? And how can we navigate in a digital world where the borders between real and fake are continuously challenged?

 

Audience takeaways:

  • Concrete understanding of what artificial intelligence and other new technologies actually entail, including references to and explanations of recent developments.

  • Pragmatic overview of the new AI Act from the EU Commission (still on proposal stage per Jan’23)

  • Recommendations for how to close the trust gap between humans and algorithms

As the physical world in 2021 was occupied with the covid pandemic, the Metaverse became the new kid on the block in the digital world. Although Zuckerberg was given the dubious honor of coing the term 'Metaverse', this new digital paradigm is, the Metaverse is way more than Facebook on speed and steroids. It is often referred to as the next generation internet, where gaming, virtual realities, and social media meet blockchain and decentralized economies. But why should you as a business leader care? And should you be excited or scared? Should you start creating your avatar or turn the computer off and take a walk in the forest?

In this talk, Elin will demystify some of the jargon, and give an overview of what the Metaverse is (and is not). She will share her perspectives on exciting opportunities and challenging concerns, and why you as a business leader and citizen should care. And what, if any, action you may need to take.

 

Audience takeaways:

  • Understanding of the main technologies and players involved

  • Realistic perspective on opportunities and what may lie ahead

  • Tangible reasons for why and how business leaders should care

We tend to think that everything digital is sustainable, because data flying around on the wireless internet don't leave any footprints. Or do they…? In this talk, Elin will blow your mind with some heart-breaking and stunning facts and anecdotes about the clash between digitalization and sustainability. At the same time, digital technologies such as cloud platforms, artificial intelligence, internet of things, and blockchain are indeed important for the sustainable future of businesses and societies.

 

How can you as a leader and decision-maker navigate in this overwhelming and complex landscape of digital technologies and sustainability issues? What do you need to understand, what are your options, and how much impact can you really make?

 

In this talk, Elin will give three actionable recommendations for how you as a leader can contribute to a smarter and more sustainable digital future.
