IFA+ Summit
IFA+ Summit 2017

Digitale Technologien und Anwendungen verändern alle Ebenen des gesellschaftlichen Lebens: beruflich, privat, sozial und global.

Auf dem IFA+ Summit 2016 diskutierten mehr als 500 Denker und Macher aus 38 Ländern, welche Entwicklungen die Zeit nach der digitalen Transformation prägen werden.

Von jüngsten Forschungsergebnissen, bis hin zu Zukunftstrends der digitalen Gesellschaft zeigten 46 Sprecher von 5 Kontinenten ihre Projekte und Ideen mit Blick auf die Entwicklungen der nächsten 5 bis 10 Jahre.

IFA+ Summit is a great initiative that provides for both the sharing of new ground breaking insights as well as the opportunity to discuss and understand them.

Hannes Sjöblad, Speaker of session “Smart World“, Tech Activist & Bodyhacker, BioNyfiken (Sweden)

These types of meetings that bring together so many people, so many technologies, that are all forward looking, all digital, is absolutely crucial for understanding where the world is going today.

Andrew Hessel, Distinguished Research Specialist Bio/Nano Research Group, Audodesk (USA)

Bionics are really taking inspiration from art for the first time. Traditionally bionics are sterile and medical devices, they don't really have personality. But now bionics van have function, they can change people's lives, they can help in everyday ways, but they can also be really impressive, they can have a personality, so I find that very exciting.

Samantha Payne,Co-Founder & COO Open Bionics (UK)

(…) we really have to look: how can we protect data from our customers, how do we assure ownership of our, of the data of our customers, so I think it's really important to have these kind of discussions to better understand, to help organizations understand what they can do to ensure privacy and security.

Mark van Rijmenan, Big Data Strategist & Founder Datafloq (Australia)

IFA+ Summit is a great platform not only to think into the future but also to learn about what's already existing, what's happening, some of the things you might not necessarily find in other sessions, so I'm really having a good time and I'm learning a lot. It's a great place to network and also to connect to people who are doing wonderful things.

Seth Akumani, Director Business Development GenKey (Africa)

We actually heard from the CEO of Messe Berlin what's so unique about the IFA+ Summit: it's the fact that we don't just look at next year, we don't just look at products, we're really about a decade from now and more, into the future, we're doing it in an interdisciplinary way, going across all the different fields in which consumer electronics and smart appliances are available and really asking: what is going to change about people's lives, about the way people work and we get a lot of inspiring and really insightful answers.
