Seven international keynotes on digitalisation will be held under the theme “The Next 20 Years” at Hamburg@work’s 20th anniversary summit on September 7, 2017 in the Kulturzentrum Kampnagel. Three main blocks called “Future Digitalisation”, “Innovation and the Working Work” as well as “Society and Politics” will highlight possible changes as well as the opportunities and risks of face recognition, mobile payment, wearable technology and artificial intelligence on commerce and our everyday lives.
Digital disruption = social disruption?
