Being Digital means Being More Human

Join us to learn how seamless integration of human experience, data analysis and technology comes together to enable the digital transformation journey.

When automation, analytics and artificial intelligence meets psychologists, anthropologists and designers the magic happens. What people do and how they work together to create value is clearly changing as work digitizes and “machines” infuse the work we do with data and meaning. To survive this new era means rethinking the concept of work, the job and what it takes today to build a career.

We have gathered the most innovative business thinkers in the intersection between humans and technology for this extraordinary meet-up in Oslo.

How Will You Survive the Future of Work?

How will you “work” to create value 10 years from now? Will the concept of a job even exist in twenty years’ time? Industry sectors are melting and reforming in startlingly creative ways, blending talents, disciplines, and technologies in a supercharged wave of innovation. What people do and how they work together to create value is clearly changing as work digitizes and “machines” infuse the work we do with data and meaning. To survive this new era means rethinking the concept of work, the job and what it takes today to build a career.

Applied AI: When Human Imitation Meets Human Nature

It's “human nature” to manipulate systems to our advantage and push the boundaries to bring about unexpected outcomes. As we eagerly anticipate the introduction of intelligent processes and equipment that think and act using AI, we should also anticipate how these complex systems might be manipulated by the human participants in unexpected ways. Building robust AI and anticipating intentional mis-use should be part of our design philosophy as we look to unleash AI’s power to assist and guide us while recognizing the positive – and negative – sides of human nature present in all of the participants.

Genetic algorithms for design automation of steel structures

The digital perspective of someone having tons of experience from the oil and gas industry.

Being More Human

To become more digital, businesses must first become more human. Businesses have dramatically changed their approach to how they serve customers and make money. Karina Hollekim thinks it’s more about the why than the how. She was one of the world’s best extreme sports athletes. In 2006 she miraculously cheated death in a near fatal accident and was predicted a life in wheelchair but came back a winner. Karina shares her story about raw willpower and passion that changed her live forever and what motivated her to make a difference in the long run. By raising awareness of our choices she challenges our willingness to change. She shows the importance of stretching your comfort zone to achieve your goals. Karina’s incredible journey, her gripping story about struggle and resilience together with her indomitable spirit makes a story to remember.
