Notes to my technologist self

Wael Ghonim, Social Entrepreneur and Product Manager Quora

Technology has changed our lives dramatically over the past few decades. Computers gave us an unprecedented capacity to store our memories. Internet gave us access to a wealth of information previously not accessible. AI is help us making better decisions. The power of the people has become significantly greater than the people in power, and with great power comes great responsibility. Reflections on some of what Wael learnt about himself, humans, and their pursuit to unlock life's biggest mysteries.

Executive Talk

Executive Talk on Innovation

The world is moving faster and faster. How can companies tell which innovations and topics are relevant to them, and how can they be used productively and monetised? How can classic projects and agile innovation be combined? How can you foster a corporate culture that enables innovation and motivates staff? Four executives from different industries and companies of different sizes will explore these questions together with the audience of the Digital Festival.

The executive talk is being held in cooperation with digitalswitzerland.

About Sense and Nonsense of Innovation Labs

Raiffeisen Schweiz – RAI Lab

Lots of classic companies who want to digitize is often setting up an "innovation lab". Labs, hubs and incubators are currently being built in series. Using these vessels, companies of all sizes want to get to grips with digitisation and generate impulses for the future. The theoretical idea makes sense, but the reality is different in many cases. The RAI Lab, Raiffeisen's innovation incubator, has been in existence for 2.5 years. Based on this experience, we work together in an interactive way on how to build a lab and discuss why there is not a suitable form of lab for all companies. We also deal intensively with the questions on how to bring horse power to the ground and how to overcome obstacles and resistances. Together we outline ways to facilitate innovation in your own organization and exchange our experiences.

Autonomous Living Through Technology

Innovation for more self-determination and inclusion

How can we succeed in using technology for people who are physically or mentally impaired? How can digitization assist them to gain more autonomy in their daily lives? Is inclusion through technology a contradiction or a real chance?

Communication with the digital city of Zurich

Stadt Zürich

Submitting taxes, booking sports courses for children, obtaining a permit - how do you communicate with the administration today? And how do you want to communicate with your city in the future? Digital, yes - but how? What do you expect from a smart city like Zurich? What wishes do you personally have for a city like Zurich?

The eGovernment specialists from the Organization and Informatics (OIZ) of the City of Zurich describe in an input presentation the projects of the City of Zurich concerning the exchange between administration, population and companies. Based on this input, we will work together to develop ideas for how a city can make interaction with its inhabitants and their businesses easier and more comfortable.

IoT – Hype or Guarantee for Real Benefits

Swisscom

The Internet of Things (IoT) opens up unlimited numbers of new applications. What is useful, and how does a project succeed? There will never be a “one size fits all” solution. Let yourself be inspired by four specific customer applications. Together with our customers, we show how these IoT projects came into being and what we can learn from them. They convincingly show that IoT projects do not depend on the size of the company; that strong personal commitment plays a central role in success; and that finding out which partner ecosystems can be useful is just as important to the round table discussion as is a critical look behind the scenes.

Numbers. Lies. Truth.

Webrepublic

Politicians, executives, PR people and journalists share a love for numbers. Because if the numbers support your argument, you must be right. This is true if you know how to play with numbers to trick your audience. Comparability? Only if it helps my argument. Representability? That’s overrated. Correlation? That’s the same as Causality.

Tobias Zehnder has been working with numbers for years. They have been helping him to understand how well his clients’ campaigns actually perform – he’s also pretty savvy when it comes to breaking the spell on number wizards working their magic in marketing, politics and journalism. In this lab he will introduce you to the most common sleights and teach you how to recognize them in Marketing as well as in real life.en.

Simplification of Digital Customer Interfaces Through Idea-thinking

Basler Versicherungen

If a car accident occurs, it must be reported to the insurance company. As an affected person in such a situation, you are in a state of emotional emergency. Confusing questions and unnecessary mandatory information burden the user even more. Instead users should be lead quickly to their goal with a few, clear questions. How can such processes be radically simplified? What questions overwhelm users in such a situation? How can modern technology radically simplify the process?

After a short introduction we work in small groups on improvements, proceed iteratively and finally consolidate the solution. You combine your ideas with those of the other lab participants and work out a solution together, which brings a real added value for the user without burdening him further.

In this lab we show how a process can be radically simplified (abstractable to other processes). With the Design Charrette you learn an efficient, versatile and inexpensive method in which you are inspired by other people and every person has the feeling of being treated and listened to equally.

What the Fuck ist Heimat?

vitra

The only constant of our time is change. This change and its speed pose great challenges for companies, brands, employees and their customers. Requirements are becoming more global, markets more digital. Product cycles faster. At the same time, however, the longing for an analog home is growing. After a constant, an anchor in change.
Studio Riebenbauer and Vitra use examples to show solutions and ways in which companies can create a "home" and identity in a digitized world. And thus to take account of a future trend and to survive in global competition.

Developing new models of logistics and cooperation together

Schweizerische Post

The world is in a state of transition, and our society and needs are changing more and more rapidly. This also applies to us at Swiss Post, as well as to our products and services. It pushes us to analyse the status quo, to make the necessary modifications and to continue developing our existing range with new ideas. At the center of our vision is the idea of connecting people through a new platform, wherever they may be.

In our lab, we show you how we are rethinking delivery and logistics, which projects we have already implemented with our partners and how these collaborations came about. And, of course, we want to use the opportunity to start a discussion with you, to find out which ideas you envisage and would like to help us implement in future.

Hidden usability dimensions

Geek Girls Carrots Switzerland

Applications should be “user-friendly” and “easy to use”. Almost every brief includes this requirement. The details of the definition will often be discussed by the project team. It soon becomes clear that “user-friendly” covers several different aspects. These aspects are always individually tailored to the application and its users. How can your team reach a quick decision on a solid definition? Our lab presents Whitney Quesenbery’s “5Es” method. The 5Es (effective, efficient, engaging, error tolerant, easy to learn) describe various dimensions of usability, which will apply differently for each application. This method quickly creates a common ground for both the client and the development team. In the lab, participants will work out weightings for different applications and discuss them as a group.

Special Case Swiss German – Insights into Speech Recognition

Swisscom

Speech recognition is one of the most important technologies of the future. As a Swiss company, we have set ourselves the task of designing a language system for Swiss-German, so that the 4.9 million Swiss people can also interact naturally with their devices in the future. In our lab you can expect a "Schwiizerdütsch" speech recognizer directly from development, as well as a water sample from the Swisscom Data Lake (i.e. an insight into our voice data). We explain why the recognition of Swiss German sometimes still makes "Lämpe", where speech recognition will be used in the future, and on which topics the researchers "sich d'Zäh usbysset". In our lab you will also have the opportunity to experience our system interactively, challenge it with your dialect, and use the opportunity to converse more on the topic with Philipp and David, our lab speakers.

Telling Big Stories - On Small Screens

Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen SRF

It's real: For some years now, we reach the vast majority of our audience via smartphone. If you tell stories that shine on large screens only, you're in big trouble. Six years have passed since the famous New York Times multimedia report "Snowfall", but only very few have succeeded in reproducing big stories perfectly on small screens. At the same time, classic websites have been superseded by Snapchat Discover and Instagram Stories, which are setting the pace today. After a short hype about 360° videos, the first interesting applications in the field of Augmented Reality are now coming up. Together we take a look at the different technologies, analyze strengths and weaknesses and look for an answer to the question of how media can continue to tell big stories – on small screens.

Value Exchange in Ecosystems

Raiffeisen Schweiz – RAI Lab

The digital transformation is leading to the redefinition or even dissolution of industry boundaries. Companies are faced with the challenge of constantly adapting their business model to the changing context. Who is adaptable wins. It makes sense to look at nature and its complex systems. Which actors are part of the same ecosystem? How can business models benefit each other? How can one's waste product become another's resource? In an interactive lab, we try out methods to make ecosystems tangible, visible and tangible.
This interactive workshop with emerging design elements not only helps to better understand the economics, opportunities and risks of platforms, but also provides exciting approaches and methods for business model generation.

Man and machine - a symbiotic relationship: people design machines and take care of them, conversely they make our lives easier. So far so good. But for how much longer? Machines are becoming ever more efficient and are increasingly taking on tasks that were previously reserved for humans. Artificial intelligence raises the question of whether we will one day construct "intelligent" machines that are on a par or even superior to us. Can machines develop consciousness? How do human brains and artificial neural networks differ? What would be the social, political and economic consequences if one day machines outperform us? Look forward to an exciting evening in which we approach these big questions from different perspectives.

Reddit Then, Now and Tomorrow

Chris Slowe, Co-Founder & CTO Reddit

Reddit is home to the most authentic conversations on the internet. As of 2018, its popularity has surged to 330 million monthly active users in spite of a UX largely unchanged for a decade. This year, Reddit tripled its size, scaled its engineering and launched its first major redesign to ultimately make Reddit more welcoming to more people.

In his keynote, Chris Slowe, CTO and Founding Engineer of Reddit, will tell the story of how Reddit evolved from its founding days into the company it is today. He will show how the company was built – and rebuilt – to enable its teams to scale rapidly and successfully unveil its highly-anticipated redesign. Lastly, he’ll give attendees a glimpse into what comes next for the front page of the internet.

Vision in an AI World

Challenge the way you perceive the world

Computer scientists and entrepreneurs working with artificial intelligence reveal how they adapt visual perception to enable robots and intelligent systems to see and interpret the environment.

Much of how we perceive our daily lives stems from the visual input we receive ­ paintings, photographs, and videos reveal how we think, feel and perceive light. Creating sensors for robots, intelligent machines, and augmented reality, researchers enable machines to perceive information related to the task­at­hand, without having to produce visual images. Tasks such as search and rescue, industrial inspection, crop monitoring or archeological surveying require an unconventional approach that delivers visual information in differing formats. Speakers will reveal how sensory perception allows robotic devices to operate at high speeds and with a fraction of the power consumption of a conventional camera. They will also demonstrate multiple scene perception algorithms based in Computer Vision techniques and their applications.

As a participant, you will have the opportunity to challenge your own perception with interactive visual illusions and convince yourself that what your brain perceives is not what your eyes see.

Special Case Swiss German – Insights into Speech Recognition

Swisscom

Speech recognition is one of the most important technologies of the future. As a Swiss company, we have set ourselves the task of designing a language system for Swiss-German, so that the 4.9 million Swiss people can also interact naturally with their devices in the future. In our lab you can expect a "Schwiizerdütsch" speech recognizer directly from development, as well as a water sample from the Swisscom Data Lake (i.e. an insight into our voice data). We explain why the recognition of Swiss German sometimes still makes "Lämpe", where speech recognition will be used in the future, and on which topics the researchers "sich d'Zäh usbysset". In our lab you will also have the opportunity to experience our system interactively, challenge it with your dialect, and use the opportunity to converse more on the topic with Philipp and David, our lab speakers.

The Why and How of Corporate Venture Capital

Redstone & Swiss Post

In search for innovation more and more corporates engage with startups, including investments therein. Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) is on the rise globally. 186 new CVC units were formed in 2017 alone. Yet, launching successful CVC activities is not easy and includes many pitfalls.

In this interactive lab we elaborate on the Why and How of Corporate Venture Capital: Why do corporates invest in startups? What are the benefits for corporates and startups? And how to best structure CVC activities?

We will use examples from our experience at Swiss Post and other CVC units to discuss different approaches. Together we will list key success factors as well as typical pitfalls and work on a blue print for successful Corporate Venture Capital activities.

Hidden usability dimensions

Geek Girls Carrots Switzerland

Applications should be “user-friendly” and “easy to use”. Almost every brief includes this requirement. The details of the definition will often be discussed by the project team. It soon becomes clear that “user-friendly” covers several different aspects. These aspects are always individually tailored to the application and its users. How can your team reach a quick decision on a solid definition? Our lab presents Whitney Quesenbery’s “5Es” method. The 5Es (effective, efficient, engaging, error tolerant, easy to learn) describe various dimensions of usability, which will apply differently for each application. This method quickly creates a common ground for both the client and the development team. In the lab, participants will work out weightings for different applications and discuss them as a group.

Numbers. Lies. Truth.

Webrepublic

Politiker, Geschäftsführer, Pressesprecher und Journalisten lieben Zahlen. Denn wer Zahlen auf seiner Seite weiss, ist im recht. Immer. Ganz besonders, wenn er ein paar Taschenspielertricks drauf hat, um sein Publikum zu bezaubern. Vergleichbarkeit? Nur wenn sie meinem Argument hilft. Repräsentativität? Wird überbewertet! Korrelation? Ist doch dasselbe wie Kausalität.

Als Marketer sind für Tobias Zehnder Zahlen zentraler Bestandteil seines Alltags. Sie helfen ihm zu verstehen, ob ein Kunde seine Ziele im Onlinemarketing tatsächlich erreicht hat – und er ist ein knallharter Profi, wenn es darum geht, Zahlenscharlatane in Marketing, Politik und Journalismus zu entlarven.

Telling Big Stories - On Small Screens

Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen SRF

It's real: For some years now, we reach the vast majority of our audience via smartphone. If you tell stories that shine on large screens only, you're in big trouble. Six years have passed since the famous New York Times multimedia report "Snowfall", but only very few have succeeded in reproducing big stories perfectly on small screens. At the same time, classic websites have been superseded by Snapchat Discover and Instagram Stories, which are setting the pace today. After a short hype about 360° videos, the first interesting applications in the field of Augmented Reality are now coming up. Together we take a look at the different technologies, analyze strengths and weaknesses and look for an answer to the question of how media can continue to tell big stories – on small screens.

Welcome to our Lab!

On an average workday, we spend 25% of our time searching for information and get interrupted about every 5 minutes. No wonder we stay trapped in the hamster wheel.

To succeed in today’s digitalized world with countless apps designed to grab our attention, a whole new set of skills and approaches is needed. In our Lab, we will educate you on the three biggest challenges that affect your and your team’s productivity. We will equip you with simple productivity strategies that really have an impact and guide you from hamster to creator of your life.

The internet of need and a call for open innovation in heavy industries

Philipp Leutiger, Chief Digital Officer at LafargeHolcim

When we speak of digital innovation, we often think of the high-end products and platforms of Silicon Valley. Philipp Leutiger, Chief Digital Officer at LafargeHolcim, offers a change of perception and addresses a second view point on digital: the internet of need. This is about providing some of the most basic requirements for people with new and innovative ideas. In this space you will find other types of user groups with new kinds of challenges - rugged environments, frugal infrastructures, low price points. While the internet of need has been growing significantly already, it is time for the European open innovation community and some of the largest European players active in these areas to enter center stage.

Having opened early 2016, the Museum of Digital Art (MuDA) is Europe’s first physical and virtual museum dedicated to digital arts and successfully hosts exhibitions featuring exceptional artists from across all continents using code to create mind-blowing art at the intersection of science and creativity. In September, the MuDA will host an exhibition with Swiss artist Pe Lang who exploits the intrinsic properties of the materials, shapes and surfaces he uses. Through their experimental combination, he achieves to mechanically program their behaviours by exploring the oscillations between order and disarray, patterns and dissonance, flow and friction. Take the chance to broaden your mind and go play where 0s and 1s run free! People with a Digital Festival Pass are invited to join the exhibition for free.

An der Gaming und eSports Family Session erkunden Kinder und Eltern gemeinsam auf spielerische Weise die faszinierende Welt des Gaming, können professionelle eSports Athleten und Let's Play YouTuber persönlich kennenlernen und an der Live Gaming Challenge als Kind-Eltern-Team coole Preise abstauben. In Zusammenarbeit mit der Plattform Medienstark der Swisscom erhalten Kinder und Eltern einen umfassenden Einblick ins Gaming und erhalten die Möglichkeit mit Expertinnen und Experten offen über Chancen und Gefahren zu sprechen und Fragen zu stellen:

  • Welche Games eignen sich für schulpflichtige Kinder?
  • Welche Gaming-Typen gibt es?
  • Ist das angeschlagene Image von Games berechtigt?
  • Wie viel Gaming ist zu viel und wann besteht Suchtpotential?
  • Wie unterscheiden sich eSports von normalen Games?
  • Was liegen die Vor- und Nachteile von Gaming und eSports?
  • Wie genau sollten Eltern über das Spielverhalten ihrer Kinder Bescheid wissen?

Doch nur über Gaming zu sprechen wäre langweilig. Jung und Alt können an verschiedenen Gamestationen unterschiedliche Games selbst ausprobieren und beurteilen und sich an der Live Gaming Challenge messen.

Die Session richtet sich an Kinder im schulpflichtigen Alter (Primar- und Sekundarschule) in Begleitung eines Erwachsenen mit einem Digital Festival Pass oder Samstags-Tagespass. Die Teilnahme für das zweite Elternteil an dieser Session ist gratis.
