Redefining the future responsibly 

Technology as a tool is neutral and how it is used is up to people. Hence, it is important that it is developed and used with responsibility and an understanding of its impact on our lives and society. Therefore, we ask, what really matters? How do we assess and choose priorities?

– It is not technology that is the challenge today, but a selective and intelligent approach to it. Exploring the latest trends in areas such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, the Internet of Things, biotechnology and other innovations that are shaping the world is extremely interesting, but requires us to be attentive and responsible. This year, we are opening up even more to the business world, addressing the topic of innovation and the changes that affect it. We will explore the importance of adapting to new trends and technologies in order to remain competitive in a dynamic market, while simultaneously changing the business, consumer and cultural landscape,” says Jowita Michalska, president of Digital University.

Human is what matters

Supporting and promoting technological solutions that care about the well-being of people and the planet is an important aspect of a selective approach to technology. Supporting ethical companies and projects can contribute to positive changes in society. Technology can encounter difficult ethical choices, for example related to artificial intelligence or biometrics. It is important to make informed decisions that respect people’s rights and dignity.
