Global Female Leaders 2017:
Will robots change our future for the better?

Meet innovative individuals who are changing the world today and tomorrow – be inspired to lead your company towards the next step!

The Global Female Leaders Summit brings together high-achieving leaders from all over the world. It gives focus to new ways of thinking and presents aspects we think we already understand from a new and unfamiliar perspective.

This summit enables women to start a dialogue; women who shape their societies and their organisations – women who make their mark.

The Global Female Leaders Summit covers a wide range of aspects, from the vital questions of the world economy to initiatives which demonstrate exemplary actions in times of crisis.

It directs attention to new markets and fields of action for companies and regions, enables the joint exploration of visions and strategies, and extends the boundaries of previous knowledge.

Shaping tomorrow’s business realities

An organisation becomes fit for the future through its richness of ideas, approaches and perspectives. More and more women are taking up positions of responsibility on executive and supervisory boards across the world, thereby entering top management.

The growing dynamics of this trend cannot be ignored. And one thing is clear: wherever this happens, old patterns of thought are being disbanded. We profit from this increased variety of thoughts, perspectives and solutions.

The participants will work out their roadmap for shaping the future: what are the issues which we as business leaders have to change fundamentally in order to create the world that future generations want to live in? How has leadership developed in recent years? What kind of leaders do we need for the challenges of tomorrow? Which skills, missions and values do female leaders and male leaders offer and how can we benefit from this diversity? But first and foremost, how do we make sure that women and men can develop their leadership skills and make their talents available for business and society?

Today’s Challenge: Big Data & Artificial Intelligence

As the attentive reader may notice, the not-so-small term of Cyber Security is missing from this headline, although they find it in the graphic above. This is not a mishap on our part, but a conscious decision in order to present you with a concise write-up. So, with this short remark out of the way, let’s focus on the matter at hand: Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.

Big Data is Not a Cliché!

A term like Big Data is almost at the risk of sounding banal during a time when everybody uses it. But it’s not. Big Data means information on everything that happens on this planet.

Companies need to discern this data in order to discover their inner workings, their potential for growth, and the needs and wants of their employees. They can use this data for predictive analytics, in order to develop new business models, to become better employers, and to stay ahead of the curve.

The Social Challenge of Robotics

We already know this question from popular science: When everything is being automated and machines finally learn to be creative, will there be any jobs left? What will welfare look like and who will buy our products? These questions might deepen the effects of the digital divide, making a big part of our workforce seemingly dispensable.

And while societies will have to deal with this outlook, there is even another ethical question on the horizon: As bionic implants get better and better, and as people make use of more cyborg devices (the smartphone being the first of them!), how would humanity handle an outcome where so-called post-human capabilities are available on the free market.
