Technology. Human capacity. Awareness. - Tallinn
03. May 2018

In their new report McKinsey Global Institute  found that up to 800 million global workers will lose their jobs by 2030 and be replaced by robotic automation. The change will be huge as up to one-fifth of the global work force will be affected.  

Robots, machine learning (AI) and virtual reality (VR) are here to stay. With new technology becoming so much faster and rapidly advancing, the need for new perspectives on human capacity is paramount. We as humans often run on autopilot by default, not thinking or questioning our own automated internal processes. We need to become more aware of what, how and why we as humans do the things we do. To maintain our own competitive advantage, we  — as humans — need to upgrade our own skills. We need to switch from slow processes of thinking to awareness-based skills (like intuition, insight and creativity).

Estonians are driven, entrepreneurial and forward-thinking people. A lot of startup companies have grown out of our tiny country and are now very successful  Skype, TransferWise, Pipedrive, Click & Grow, GrabCAD, Erply etc. We live a society where technology has changed our lives. We have mobile-parking, we do e-banking, we declare our taxes online, we talk with distant friends and family over Skype and we vote via e-voting. ID-card and mobile ID has been with us longer than anywhere else in the world. This makes our Tallinn event the perfect place to ask questions like:

  1. How can we as humans and companies be winners from new technical solutions? 
  2. What are the new human challenges in this tech world? 
  3. What are the future success skills – why do awareness/consciousness and ethics matter now even more than ever?

why this matters?

  • Success is defined by your own understanding of your inner realm. 
    The next game changing innovation is not going to come from technology, it will concern our inner world if we as people want to stay competitive during the era of sped up technological development. Come and listen and participate in the unique discussions between self-awareness and tech experts. Human ethics vs programmed rules? What is the responsibility of the tech creator?


  • You as human being are special. 
    Get a glimpse why awareness is your access to insights, creativity and intuition. Learn why awareness based intra-personal skills become an absolute necessity to have for every top expert or entrepreneur. Even if machines will not be self-aware, they will still learn faster than us and influence our way of life. The responsibility of humans vs giving up our freedom for new comforts?


  • Automated factories are not always movie robots. 
    Learn why automation demands different kind of design and different kind of human skills. Learn why we cannot continue the old way. Learn why those who do not change will be on the loosing side. Get a glimpse of how leaders who manage this brave new tech world think, act and guide their team to action.


  • Awareness enables us to differentiate things. 
    Virtual reality is still in its infancy. Do you remember old computer and TV screens with visible dots? They are almost gone, so will be the first generation of VR devices. Get an initial insight into why your awareness is the only thing that will enable you to know if you are living in a high quality simulation or in the real world.
