One small step for a man, one giant leap for Prague. As gold partners, we helped to bring the top visionaries from Silicon Valley to the unique SingularityU Czech Summit that took place in Žofín Palace on 5-6 March Over the course of two days, 20 speakers and over 700 attendees debated modern technologies and their impact on human life, guided by an experienced moderator Daniel Stach.
For the first time in the history of the human race, technologies are developing at such a pace that many of us are losing touch. At the same time, technological advances in the field of artificial intelligence and robotics, as well as medicine, the job market and even criminal investigation, are providing answers to many of the 21st century problems. The SingularityU Czech Summit decided to seek them out.
The speakers included the hacker and innovator Pablos Holman, who works closely with the founder of Amazon Jeff Bezos, the Stanford professor of neuroscience Divya Chander, and Ramez Naam, one of the world’s leading IT experts, owner of 19 patents and former head of development of Outlook and Internet Explorer. On top of that, Direct People was able to host a unique workshop with Ramez for representatives of top Czech businesses.
Among other partners of the event were Deloitte, Google and Penta.
