Green Economy:
- How new technology can accelerate the global goals


‍The Norway Summit 2020 thematic focus will be on hownew technology can be used to speed up the progress to reach theUnited Nations sustainable development goals agenda 2030 (SDGs) and how tocreate economic growth with the use of new technology without harmingenvironment.  

Artificial intelligence provides an opportunity to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges, including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We need full power of new and forceful technology to speed up the progress to reach the goals.

With the fourth industrial revolution you need to be updated on new technology to succeed as a leader, independent on the sector you are based in. Keeping up with rapidly evolving technologies can be difficult. You have to be able to plan for the unexpected as disruption is the new norm. However, you do not have to be an expert in technology to achieve success and you cannot do it alone. Public and private businesses need to work together tomake sure that technology is actively managed to align with societal needs, and address its most urgent goals.

Solving today’s biggest challenges requires allof us to act, no matter if in the economic, technological, societal, or educational field because all our actions are interdependent.

“You can’t predict the future, but you can prepare for it.”

Radical technologies' impact on business and society

The adaption of new technology will massively change the world economy and bring new opportunities, although negative side effects such as cyber security, need to be addressed in a much more serious way. As a leader you need to understand this world changing technology that is shaping the new digital economy.

Kunstig intelligens – ekte muligheter
Når en selvlært datamaskin trenger 24 timer på å nå verdenstoppen i sjakk, vet du at framtiden for alvor banker på. Ulrich Paquet, forsker i DeepMind, kommer til oss for å fortelle om det grensesprengende dataprogrammet AlphaZero og hvilke muligheter det kan gi oss.
Nytt samarbeid med Universitet i Stavanger
Norway Summit, ”the Summit of the Minds”, tiltrekker folk som aldri har vært her før. Rockestjernene innen økonomi og ny teknologi som kunstig intelligens. Som et ledd i å styrke regionen har Universitetet i Stavanger (UiS) inngått partnerskap med Norway Summit, med konferansen som flaggskip og utgangspunkt for utvikling.
Med hjartet på rette staden
Det begynner å bli noen år siden Siri Lill Mannes var å se i nyhetssendingene til TV 2. Kanalen som kom med et friskt pust tidlig på 90-tallet, som flere av oss assosierer med å ha en litt løsere kommunikasjon rundt tunge nyhetssaker, men ikke en mindre seriøs aktør av den grunn. Det å formidle gjøres best når det blir litt emosjonelt, når vi kan koble på følelser og formidlingen beveger, som regel gjennom god historiefortelling.
