Our founders Boris & Stefan went with high exactions to Bern. An event with the range from workshop to gala dinner, that is not everyday.
Stefan was assigned to the workshop “Data Engineering, Data Science, Data Analytic“, where specialists from Dr. Pascal Sieber & Partners AG took time to go through the FiPME use case and work out: where, which data can be processed how and what FiPME can do better to increase the user experience. The groups were small, which increased the quality of the workshops.
Boris was on “UX is Business – Creating Value in a Human-Centered Way”.
After the workshops both went back to the beautiful Casino of Bern with new ideas and knowledge in their head.
The evening promised exciting topics and after the Vieri tasted delicious, the evening could start.
The Key Note started with Prof. Venkat Venkatraman, who inspired us with thoughts and methods for strategies in the digital age.
The Internet offers more and more people an infinite amount of information of all kinds. Artificial intelligence processes an inconceivably large flood of information in a very short time. Innovative and useful ideas spread across the globe in a matter of seconds. Software-driven business ideas penetrate existing markets and conquer new terrain within a few years. At the same time, we are experiencing an enormous shortage of skilled workers.
For more information about Prof. Venkat Venkatraman ideas please have a look at the Harvard Business Review here.
And the data of the situation was then the topic of the call between Mr. Schuller (an old grandpa who was worrrying about his grandson taking the right job role) and Mr. Serge Frech (CEO of ICT Berufsbildung Switzerland). If you want to know about the speech you can read it here.
Next was a panel discussion with Doris Leuthard, Judith Bellaiche and Bettina Hirsig who talked on the one hand about this shortage of skilled workers, which will accompany almost all industries for the foreseeable future, and on the other hand about how skilled workers are increasingly supported by intelligent machines, i.e. artificial intelligence.
The whole event was rounded off by a fantastic dinner, a fundraiser by the artist Vierwind for the benefit of SOS Children’s Villages and a great audience for networking.
We say thank you very much and have to admit – our expectations were exceeded.
