Themes

At TBX 2022 you will encounter technologies in the form of the hottest topics of the moment.

TECH MEANS BUSINESS

During TBX we will inspire you with interesting cases and behind the scenes sneak peeks of tech innovations. In 45-minute sessions, international tech & business experts will take you through best practices and share valuable learnings in the field of digital transformation. These are the main topics TBX will cover.

Smart World

The world around us gets smarter and smarter every day. 5G and any next-gen networking technology enable myriad IOT sensors to be connected with the Internet. All sectors and verticals are affected. Concepts like Smart Cars, Smart Cities, Smart Factories, Industry 4.0., Smart Health, Smart Homes, Smart Logistics and Transport are improving productivity and quality of life. Smart Devices like Smart Assistants, Smartphones, Implantables and Wearables surround us and are our smart companions. Autonomous Driving, robots, drones and any other unmanned vehicles taking over.

Data Factory

Data is the new oil and algorithms feed AI and ML based systems. To be aware of the valuable data lake and to turn this into smart data and with that into smarter products and services is key. Data mining is at the core of each data strategy. Data science including data analytics and data management are the new master disciplines. A data factory concept ensures processing the right data, extracting the right conclusions and delivering on the right actions

New Work

New Work is the epitome of structural change in the world of work. It is assumed that the previous work system is outdated. The new keyword is freedom. It is a collective term for meaningful and forward-looking work, a concept for a new way of working in the global and digital age. The demands on the employer, the workplace and the image of the employee are completely new. In addition, the post-pandemic workplace continues to shift and requires collaboration between remote workers and office workers.

Green Tech

Decarbonization is the duty of mankind in the 21st century. Cloud infrastructure, the crypto space and the looming metaverse are heavy consumers of energy. The IT industry needs to think about a sustainable delivery of infrastructure and services. Green tech–or green technology–is an umbrella term that describes the use of technology and science to reduce human impacts on the natural environment. Many green technologies aim to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in order to prevent climate change.

Web 3.0

Unlike Web 1.0 where users simply acting as consumers of content, Web 2.0 enabled masses of users to participate in content creation on social networks, blogs, sharing sites and more. With the 3rd generation of the internet aka Web 3.0, the rise of technologies such as distributed ledgers and storage on blockchain will allow for data decentralization and create a transparent and secure environment, overtaking Web 2.0’s centralization, surveillance and exploitative advertising. Decentralized infrastructure and application platforms will displace centralized tech giants, and individuals will be able to own their data. Smart Contracts enable a whole new NFT economy, the tokenization of both the virtual as well as the real world, and finally buold the foundation for concepts like DAO and the metaverse.

Deep Tech

Deep tech summarizes technologies not focused on end-user services that includes artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, advanced material science, photonics and electronics, biotech and quantum computing. With that, it is technology that is based on tangible engineering innovation or scientific advances and discoveries. Its fundamental focus is to pioneer new solutions that solve society’s biggest issues; including chronic disease, climate change, clean energy and food production. Deep tech firms differ from traditional tech companies since technologists and scientists typically collaborate toward a common goal.

IT Ethics

IT ethics is the application of ethical thinking to the practical concerns of technology. The reason technology ethics is growing in prominence is that new technologies give us more power to act, which means that we have to make choices we didn’t have to make before. As an example, artificial intelligence is a field of technological endeavour that people are exploring in order to make better sense of the world. Because we want to make sense out of the world in order to make better choices, in a way, AI has a fundamentally ethical aspect. As long as there is technological progress, technology ethics is not going to go away; in fact, questions surrounding technology and ethics will only grow in importance

Cyber Resilience

Cyber resilience refers to the ability to protect electronic data and systems from cyberattacks, as well as to resume business operations quickly in case of a successful attack. Cyberattacks are a serious threat to each business. Attackers could try to hack into an organisation for economic gain or simply for demonstrative purposes, or they could be driven by the aim of causing damage and disruption. A cyber-resilient organization can adapt to known and unknown crises, threats, adversities, and challenges. Cyber resilience is a concept that brings business continuity, information systems security and organizational resilience together
