Factory Of The Future
It was never the role of robots to fully replace human workers. Smart technologies minimize the risk of injury at workplaces, facilitate and speed up communication between technicians and headquarters, enable simulations through digital twins, and indicate the threat of potential failure of machines or instruments. In our demo you can look at how technologies, such as HoloLens, make up this kind of a factory and transform the future of production.
Store Of The Future
Our behaviour is changing under the influence of technologies and with it changes also our public space. Imagine a store. How could it utilize information technologies? At a reasonable cost, of course. Thanks to artificial intelligence and data analysis we know much more now. For instance, who wouldn’t like coming to a store where everything was brand new but at the same time perfectly familiar? How could anything like that be possible? Easily. Filip Horký will show you that personalization of shopping is not just an issue of virtual space anymore, and that it is making its way to our everyday reality.
Intelligent Financial Services
With modern technologies, financial services too can be simple, safe, and efficient. Thanks to integrated environment, personalization, and data analysis they can offer maximum customer experience without tedious series of administrative actions. In our demonstration of intelligent financial services, Brett King, a visionary and fintech guru, will guide you through different scenarios to show you how innovation changes the future of financial services and the customer experiences of their clients.
The sphere of public services needs to move forward too. Through e-government, digital transformation can improve the experience of citizens and companies, and at the same time simplify the work of civil servants. To find out what such a digital government and authority of the future could look like, Filip Horký talked to Václav Koudele from Microsoft, government agent for digitization Vladimír Dzurilla, and Roman Vrba, director of eGovernment department of the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic, and Ivan Bartoš, chairman of Czech Pirate Party.
