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

Robots and Virtual Reality are here to stay. Why technology and human capacity need new look is clear — new technology is faster and more advanced, so we need to become more aware of what, how and why we do.

Estonians are driven, forward-thinking and entrepreneurial, and a lot of startups that have grown out of our country are now successful companies, such as Skype, TransferWise, Pipedrive, Click & Grow, GrabCAD, Erply, Fortumo, Mooncascade, Lingvist etc. We have been living on the cutting edge of IT solution longer then others — mobile-parking, e-banking, declaring taxes online, digitally signing and verifying contracts and documents, talking with friends over Skype and e-voting, ID-card and mobile ID have been with us longer then anywhere else in the world. This makes our Tallinn event perfect place to ask questions like:

  1. Can we as humans change ourselves? Can be winners from new technical solutions?
  2. Are we willing to change our way of acting and communication?
  3. What is the role of AI and virtual reality in our lives? What are the benefits from it? What are the downsides/risks?
  4. Can we change as society? What it means to our way of life and working?
  5. Are we ready to re-look our ways of running companies and doing business?
  6. What are the intra-personal skills needed to succeed in this new world of work and entrepreneurship?

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 people want to stay on top of the game during the era of speeding up tech development. Come and listen and participate in the unique discussions between self-awareness and tech experts. Human ethics vs programmed rules? The responsibility of 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 the 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 — a lot. 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 or 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 action.


  • Awareness enables us to differentiate things. 
    Virtual reality is still in baby shoes. 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 why your awareness is the only thing that enables you know if you in the high quality sim or in real world.
