Up to date with digitization

The panel, made up of experts in new technologies, talked about how technology is revolutionizing; the whole world more and more every day; participants in this summit stressed that Europe needed to catch up with digitization.

We’ve lost the battle over the smartphone, said Berger Bouée’s boss.

These speculations make Europe claim to obtain a good starting position in artificial intelligence competition.

Markus Haas, Managing Director of Telephonic Germany, was present with other top executives from the economic summit of the Süddeutsche Zeitung, where the Telefónica BASE CAMPO was once again travelling. He advocated greater investment in digital infrastructure.

It is up to us to shape the future. Europe’s digital infrastructure needs strong networks and a framework that enhances investment for future competitiveness, Haas told some 400 representatives from business, politics and the media.

AXA boss Thomas Buberl gave his opinion on the solution of future technology; such as Artificial Intelligence or robotics: “We have to make yesterday’s competitors tomorrow’s” partners. This could range from the cooperation of European companies; to the common use of customer data. Because “there’s no point just copying Amazon and Alibaba in Europe,” Buberl said.

Europe at the forefront of future technologies

Gillians Tans CEO of Booking observed a problem in the configuration. For many people in Europe, there are reservations about large digital companies. “But big isn’t always bad,” Tans said.

He also added that the digital tax currently used for Internet companies is not a good solution. Such a tax is discriminatory because it only affects digital platforms. It would also make Europe less attractive to innovative companies. “We don’t need more rules, we need less,” says Tans.

European values must play an important role in the digital transformation. The panel of technology experts gave their opinions; “It’s not just about technology,” argued Buberl, but also about the values of Europe and the social market economy.

A clear value for the use of artificial intelligence can be a competitive advantage for Europe over the US or Asia, said Markus Haas.

Companies with a good profile to use new technologies

The innovative companies selected to be present at this summit this year were:

  • Blue go
  • Blickfed
  • Hawa Dawa
  • ProGlove
  • Tandemploy
  • Userlane

Germany does not want to be left behind with the development of new technologies, I make it clear that it wants to be interested in all the applications that have Foundation IOTA and Blockchain and all the technological innovations.
