The schedule of WinDays20 powered by Microsoft conference is published. The conference will take place in an online format from 7th till 9th December 2020. The participants will be able to watch more than 60 business, business/technology, and technology sessions via live stream. All that they miss, they could watch after via video. WinDays20 keynote will bring a duel of Rafal Lukawiecki and Steven Van Belleghem. They will discuss the most controversial technological topics and share their thoughts on how technology will shape the world in the future and how to cope with it.
If the WinDays20 keynote were a movie, it would probably be called Clash of the Titans. If there would be a bet offered, it would surely have been the „best tip“ event as both participants are well-known names from the world of business and technology with a completely different background, and their duel is scheduled for Wednesday, 9th December at 11:45 AM. In the left corner Steven Van Belleghem. The team he plays for: business. Author of several bestsellers and keynote speaker with over 1000 presentations. An expert on the future of the user experience. In the right corner Rafal Lukawiecki. The team he plays for: technology. He has a lot of fans within the ICT community. Lecturer at major IT conferences, where he shared the stage with Bill Gates and Neil Armstrong. Data scientist and expert in artificial intelligence and advanced analysis.
They both agree that business without technology is impossible, but what do they think about controversial technology topics? What will happen to the stores – will we shop “live” or will artificial intelligence do all our shopping? Will robots take over human jobs? How far can the manipulation of our ideas go when artificial intelligence becomes a more mature technology? How far does personalization go, and do we want to have personalized food based on DNA analysis? Technology largely dictates the direction in which we are moving as a society, and how we will deal with this is a question for WinDays20 keynote speakers.
We will also talk about this year’s key conference topic – artificial intelligence. The speakers will deal with artificial intelligence from various aspects, so participants will be able to learn more about smart AI services, challenges in developing products based on artificial intelligence, and whether AI can help turn a lot of data into information. The “I’ll be back” panel will investigate what Croatian companies are doing in the field of artificial intelligence and whether we are late or whether artificial technology can position Croatia on the global map as a country that creates innovations in this field.
The speakers will also present the news from Microsoft technologies, tools for collaboration and remote work, solutions that optimize and automatize business processes, and increase productivity. During all three days, the program will be led by moderators Domagoj Pavlešić and Igor Pavleković (technological track), Dinko Tipurić (business – technological track) and Željko Krizmanić (business track). They will be participants’ spokespersons, talk to the speakers, and pass on participants’ questions and comments.
In addition to the online conference program, a limited number of participants can also join WinDays Hands-On live workshops at the Mozaik Event Center in Zagreb. There are two workshops available: Transformation of the organization through learning and implementation of the developmental mental structure led by Mladen Milavić (Nutriteh) and Machine learning with the help of Azure Cognitive Service led by Zlatan Morić (Algebra).
WinDays participants won’t have a chance to hang out at coffees and WinDays parties, but they can connect through the WinDays Business Network. The upgraded version of the Business Network allows them (if they join) to contact other Network members directly, arrange a business meeting or coffee, and chat with Network members who find themselves at the same session. WinCoin’s most persistent collectors (virtual conference currency) will win valuable prizes: an electric bike, a weekend for two at the Maistra Hotel, and an electric scooter.
