On October 10th I went to my second event at “jayways” Stockholm office where I got the chance to learn all about future technology and also to try out the gadgets that will radically transform the way we think. First I want to give a brief description about jayway and then write a reflection with regard to new technologies.
Jayway helps their clients anticipate the future, evolve their business and play a meaningful role in their customer lives. Their local studios combine creativity and technology to transform ideas into realities on mobile, web and in the cloud. Every year they are hosting a event in Stockholm, Malmö, San Francisco, Copenhagen to talk about future technologies and how that the world is changing in many ways. They also discussed how to use them to improve businesses.
For me, it is still amazing to see what possibly will happen in the future. Expected changes due to machine learning, virtual reality and augmented reality, digital assistants and wearables can completely change our life. As you see an avalanche of new technology coming our way. Some of them makes sense but the world faces great challenges. It is considered that many jobs are at risk, critical data will result in a fierce battle for customers and market shares and finally the danger of producing an artificial intelligence. The responsible use of these new technologies are more important than ever. But they also offer a variety of possibilities. They showed how cities can change by autonomous driving. It can improve the flow of traffic as well as road safety. Moreover parking spaces, which are no longer needed, can be used to make the cities brighter and greener.
Other subjects covered at the meeting were digital assistants and home automation. In the session “digital assistants” they talked about the history of digital assistants, discussed if they really are useful and took a peek into the future with digital assistants. With regard to home automation they gave an overview of the options that are available today and then showed how we can write your own code to connect anything to our smart home.
At the end of the event I played with several gadgets and technologies. The event showed me the range of opportunities are broad to build a start-up. We are living and working in very exciting times, in which innovations are implemented from ideas into reality at increasingly faster speeds. That offers wide-ranging possibilities for entrepreneurs!!!
