This keynote presents an updated view on the status of digital transformation/Industry 4.0 and how we are right now at the edge of profound changes to how work is done, money is made and even how it is deeply impacting our life. Our existence as humans has always been tied to our ability to adapt to the changes around us. Now, the velocity of this evolution has taken an exponential direction, where everything is becoming connected to everything else while global megatrends, politics, and public sentiment is in almost a constant flux. People, companies, and even countries are playing a catch-up game trying to grasp and position themselves to both exploit the vast opportunities that exist, while acknowledging that sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor. At the edge of 2020, the existing business foundations are just not adequate or constructed for the data-intensive, hyperconnected, and cross-collaborative world that is fueling the future of our businesses and our lives.
This will be both thought provoking and informative, while guiding and providing insight to how we are moving almost "on autopilot" towards a new digitized paradigm of AI, VR, machine learning, Industry 4.0 and the use of cognitive science that will force us to reframe our legacy thinking.
