Leaders in Tech Bilbao
9:00 - 13:00
Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, Blockchain and Cybersecurity: four technologies that are the basis of the digitisation and innovation processes that are transforming our economy and society. The technology industry is nowadays the main vehicle for the transmission of culture and knowledge, and the one that will trigger the most profound changes, laying the new foundations for digital demands and the scientific culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.
What are the latest breakthroughs in the development of these technologies? What possibilities of use do they offer in the short and long term? What projects are being implemented on in the public and private sectors? How should organisations adapt to the opportunities offered by technology? What are the profiles that will be in demand in the organisations of the future?
The LEADERS IN TECH conference aims to answer these questions, giving voice to people and organisations that are leading the development and applications in the following areas: Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, Blockchain and Cybersecurity.
Not to mention that technology and business must go hand in hand to make a real impact. To this end, we will highlight examples of leadership in organisations in our ecosystem that are changing the Basque technology and business landscape, and that will share their vision on the challenges and opportunities of technology as an engine of development and innovation.
The event aims to make visible the talent 4.0 that contributes to the demand for digital, scientific and technological profiles that are key to Industry 4.0 and the digital transformation of the Basque economy.
Maitane Hernández, CEO of Weroi, will participate in the round table on digital transformation.
