Digitalize in Stockholm 2020 – Together we will shape the future!
We talked to Anna Kiefer, Chief Operations Officer at Digital Futures, and project manager for Digitalize in Stockholm 2020.
What do the two days offer me?
– You will be able to listen to international keynote speakers sharing their perspectives on topics ranging from Robots for disasters to Digital twins. There will be demos of new technology and ongoing research projects, as well as in-depth discussions addressing questions like How can digital futures be sustainable futures?
Several hundred people will participate and interact online. How have you done? I mean, it can be difficult even to get a Zoom meeting to work properly.
– This will be an entirely digital event, where everyone meets on an online platform suited for events like this. The theme of the conference is how digitalization can reduce impact of crises and the conference format itself is an example of that. Join us and explore new ways for conference participation!
Last year the event was for a selected audience and this year’s event is open and free of charge, how come?
– Last year’s event was highly appreciated and we wish to reach a broader audience this year, enabling interaction between a multitude of current and future thought leaders globally. A mix of pre-recorded and live material on an interactive platform will allow for extensive knowledge sharing.
Finally, tell us a litle about yourself!
– I am really excited to embark on this new mission! With my international background in futures research and strategy development, I look forward to promoting cross-disciplinary research and development, focusing on digital technologies to solve challenges facing society in Sweden and globally. Together we will shape the future!
