The Metaverse and the future of the media landscape 
Sofie Hvitved

Ten years from now, will we live a large part of our lives in the virtual world? What is the Metaverse exactly? How will web3 affect the media industry regarding the new virtual ownership with NFT’s and DAO’s that might be changing the relationship between the users and the producers? Is the new creator economy on the rise? What are the long-term perspectives? And not least: How should your company react? Join Sofie Hvitved, Senior Advisor and Head of Media at the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies, for a rundown on some of the newest trends affecting the future of how we live, work, interact, transact and consume media. 

 

Can disruption make us more creative?
Tim Harford

Using the latest research, and examples from music to commuting to innovation, Tim Harford explores the power of obstacles to produce creative solutions - and our instinctive resistance to what can be a painful process. 

 

Responsible AI: A product management essential
Agnes Stenbom

There has been much talk about the ethical risks of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in recent years, with tech companies and regulators alike assessing the downsides of the new technological opportunities. But what does it all mean in practice? In her talk at mcb tech, Schibsted's Agnes Stenbom will explain why "responsible AI" is not an end goal, but an essential part of creating AI-powered products and services that users trust, enjoy and find worth paying for – today and in the future. 

 

Green Code 2022
Anders Norås

Green computing is always about energy-efficient servers, hardware without hazardous materials, and other things that appeal to hardware buffs. Cloud computing is great, but what else can us programmers do to help the environment?
Back in 20109, Anders showed us how to be eco-friendly through writing better code and smarter business logic in his lightning talk Green Code. More than ten years late, in the decade where the world needs to deliver on the UN Sustainability Goals, Anders revisits his 2009 presentation to explore how we programmers can contribute to eco-friendliness by writing better code and designing better software.

 

Europe’s Big Tech crackdown:  A Revolution to Rein in the Kings of Big Tech
Angela Mills Wade, Petra Wikström, Gry Haugsbakken

Europes Digital Markets Act and Digital Services Act take a hammer at Big Tech as it targets the most powerful intermediating platform (aka gatekeepers) with an ex ante, pro-competition regime. Have BigTechs amplified disinformation and extremism with no accountability? Well, the EU believes so and is poised to do something about it with the DMA and DSA.

 

Cyber Wakeup Call: How Can We Prepare for the Future?
Torgeir Waterhouse, Per Thorsheim

Cyber adversaries plan their attacks with both a short and a long view. And while it is difficult to see the future with crystal ball precision or even predict it, we can at least prepare for the future and work to mitigate potential threats.
There are many steps organizations can take to avoid making news headlines for all the wrong reasons. So even though there are many challenges we face, but one thing is for sure: the importance of forward-thinking cybersecurity will be a priority for years to come.

 

Looking into the Crystal Ball
Tendayi Viki, Agnes Stenbom, Sofie Hvitved, Ben Evans, Tim Harford

A panel of future-focused speakers, experts on their turf, gives us insight into what they anticipate in the future of business.
