DIGITALIZATION SESSION

Data sharing and the need to both cooperate and compete
  • A look at the role of Artificial Intelligence as a dominant area of the term “digitalization” in the future in all disciplines and work processes.
  • How the need for data is radical compared to present and drive the need to share more data between companies.
  • High value potential vs numerous but achievable obstacles
  • Key to success: the belief in the participants that their ability to create value out of a dataset greater than their own is larger than the downside by giving some of their data away
