At the upcoming high-level digital summit (Tallinn Digital Summit 2019) ministers and speakers from the field from 20 countries will discuss the impact of artificial intelligence on our future. The Estonian modular silent space manufacturer Silen will also contribute to the success of the event.
“The digital summit is very crowded and quite loud, so I am pleased that we can contribute to the success of the event with wheeled modular spaces that can be comfortably relocated exactly when the need arises,” said Endrus Arge, CEO of Silen. This will allow all participants to have private conversations, give interviews, or summarise the impressions of the day in open spaces. According to Arge, Silen itself intends to engage artificial intelligence in future developments, and news about that can be expected soon.
Until then, the IT and digital ministers leading the delegations, as well as many prominent speakers such as Michel van der Bel, president of Microsoft EMEA; Ulrik Vestergaard Knudsen, Deputy Secretary-General of the OECD; Hans-Christian Boos, the CEO and founder of one of the leading AI enterprises, Arago; Nanjira Sambuli, Kenyan scientist and the Digital Equality Advocacy Manager at the World Wide Web Foundation; and Stephen Hsu, professor of theoretical physics and scientist at the University of Michigan, will share their thoughts on artificial intelligence.
‘The presentations of the summit tackle issues such as increasing efficiency in the public sector by using artificial intelligence, developing the relevant skills in the job market, and the possible influence of artificial intelligence in providing healthcare and developing the justice system,’ said Liina Areng, Head of Tallinn Digital Summit.
The conference (Tallinn Digital Summit 2019) is organised by the Government Office in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications. The content partners of Tallinn Digital Summit 2019 are the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), The International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), The Future Society, and the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI). In addition to Silen, the official car partner BMW will contribute to the Digital Summit.
