Our dynamic duo of Petr Mára and Alžběta Trojanová, who will guide you throughout the day, will bid you a warm welcome.
It’s hard to see the future, but we will try to predict the skills that will be needed in a fast-changing world. These abilities are constantly shifting, so we need to concentrate on those that enhance human uniqueness.
It all begins with the discovery and development of our own talents and then moves through the ability to communicate and collaborate with others. Inspiration is responsible for most scientific and technological discoveries, but the need to consume vast amount of data and information will also bolster the importance of critical thinking.
Some estimates say 90% of jobs in the future will require digital skills. Are you ready for that? This talk will discuss the major trends in digital media, consumer behavior, education, and the importance of online communication.
You’ve heard of chemicals or particles in the air, but how do they affect your everyday life? Did you know they can be measured? And do you want to see what happens when you marry IoT with AI to create Smart Buildings? Thanks to emerging technologies, the long-ignored topic of indoor air quality is about to be tackled, making our lives safer, healthier, and more productive.
Coming from Israel, a country with no race tracks or motorsport industry, Griiip can do things differently. They focus on implementing new technologies in their race cars to solve the biggest challenges facing the motorsports industry: The continuously increasing costs and the lack of fan engagement. Lets bring motorsport back to the people!
You mean the high-speed transportation system jump-started by Elon Musk ? Yup, we’re talking about the Hyperloop. This solution could cut the travel time between Krakow and Warsaw to only 18 minutes. The EUROLOOP story will be told by its founder himself.
NAVYA ARMA is a safe, reliable and comfortable 100% autonomous, driverless and electric public transport vehicle that can carry up to 15 people. It has been designed to ensure the specific functions of an autonomous vehicle while optimizing navigation and safety. The shuttle is equipped with a multitude of sensor technology to provide 3D vision which enables it to map out the environment, detect obstacles in its path and identify traffic and road signs. The NAVYA ARMA shuttle can reach speeds of 28miles/hr. However, taking into account the nature of the sites it often serves, this is often limited to 15 miles/hr. The vehicle aims to provide a complement to current public transport systems over distances that are too short to go by car or are too long on foot.
When it comes to nanofibers, one key feature never ceases to amaze the audience – their versatility! The structure of these tiny, ultra-fine fibers not only closely resembles a natural cellular environment, but it’s also capable of delivering active substances from an interface several times larger than any common carrier platform while consuming significantly less material. Nanofibers and the human body are simply meant to interact! From anti-aging medicine to drug delivery, implantology and cosmetics, the healthcare sector is just heating up.
Storytellers have always dreamed of completely immersing their audience. Technology is bringing this ideal closer to reality each day. The current developments in virtual, augmented and mixed reality are a harbinger for the future of storytelling. We can clearly see 360-degree video and volumetric film are just further steps towards an unavoidable future: total realistic virtual worlds that manage to involve and immerse us completely into fictional plots. Is this utopia, dystopia, or just part of human evolution?
Artist Neil Harbisson was born completely color blind. Today, however, he has device attached to his head that turns color into audible frequencies. Instead of seeing a world in grayscale, Neil can hear a symphony of color — and yes, even listen to faces and paintings.
A short talk from the Prague 7 City District Council.
Healthcare systems and care services are experiencing an exponential increase in data. That’s where artificial intelligence and big data can fundamentally change how health data is used while greatly improving outcomes. In addition to discussing trends and possibilities, a practical demonstration of the Watson Oncology clinical support system will be presented.
Though it’s a rather young sport, the drone racing fanbase has been growing rapidly around the world. Jan Mittner will talk about his journey from his start as a drone enthusiast to becoming one of the sport’s top racers.
Think that music cannot get along with technology? Matan Berzkowitz – a music technologist – will prove you wrong with his invention that translates physical signals, like brainwaves or heartbeats, into sounds. Take in the live demonstration.
What’s it like to have another sense? What if you could tell where North is as easily as you can distinguish the smell of a flower? Cyborg Nest has developed the first artificial sense, the North Sense, which is provided through a miniature piece of technology connecting the owner to the earth’s magnetic field. See a live demonstration by Liviu.
Today, more than 50% of people live in cities, create and traffic and pollution that put a major strain on the environment. BattSwap provides a solution that makes electric vehicles cheaper than traditional internal combustion-powered cars. Smart mobility as a service supported by BattSwap will save money, improve people’s health, and make our cities a better place to live.
Transportation, as we know it, is broken. A disruption of the status quo could come from a single big project. And that’s where the Hyperloop™ comes in. The improvement of every facet of the passenger experience provides opportunities for the development of numerous products that create a better environment for all travelers. The question is: Is the Hyperloop the future of human mobility?
This interview with the former lead design engineer for Tesla and Faraday Future will touch on where mobility is going and the coming trends that will shape how we get around. This talk will take a peek behind the curtain to reveal what we can expect.
Building a flying car was a dream for Henry Ford. The dream became a reality in 2010 when an aeromobile was designed and created in neighboring Slovakia. Juraj Vaculík will tell us how AeroMobil – a car that drives down the road and then takes off into the air when needed – will change our traditional forms of transportation.
In next 10 years, technology will play an unprecedented transformative role in society and exert an even stronger influence on the continuing process of globalization. People, organizations, and states will mainly compete through the ability to use technology to innovate, create, and design.
The paradox is that the more technology we will use, the more knowledge and talent will become the only long-term competitive advantage. This talk should encourage you to think about the implications of those trends not only in the economy, but also in broader society.
1/3 of the food we produce today is wasted. That’s around 1.3 billion tons annually. This level of waste is a tragedy that cannot continue if we are to sustainably meet our future food demands. Data has the potential to fundamentally change the way the food system operates by enabling informed decision-making throughout the supply chain. Rachael Gan, CFO-COO of ImpactVision, will discuss how hyperspectral imaging can provide this knowledge.
