CKIR Workshop 2018: The Future of the hyper-connected world

Welcome to our 14th annual CKIR workshop to vision what life in the hyper-connected world would look like when Finland turns 150 years in 2067.

In today’s hyper-connected world, the technological, economic and societal developments are un-reversible intertwined. Digitalization and advanced technologies disrupt prevailing industry structures, service delivery methods and economic models. Further to their business and human capital impacts, advanced technologies have a profound impact on societal models. They influence the way we interact with each other, shape our values and norms in terms of acceptable social behaviors, and set our expectations for the rights and responsibilities that we as individuals, professionals and citizens hold in society. Technology enabled transparency has even challenged our expectations toward government in terms of policy and regulatory processes and decision-making.

We invite you to our 14th annual CKIR workshop to vision what life in the hyper-connected world would look like when Finland turns 150 years in 2067. What will be the currencies of exchange in data-driven economies? How will blockchain and virtual services change the patterns of consumption and service provisioning? And how will artificial intelligence help us build sustainable societies? These questions will be addressed with esteemed keynote speakers from public sector, industry and academia.
