Automation is ever present in more aspects of our personal and work lives. What does this mean for us as humans when we are allowing machines to take over?

What are you most ex­cited about this yea­r’s GAF?
The same thing that excites me every year: bringing together some of the brightest minds in the world in one space to discuss, debate and discover our theme of automation.

 

What inspired this year’s theme I AM NOT A ROBOT?
It’s a synthesis of the last three editions of the Forum, which focused on technology, the future and trade, respectively. Automation is ever present in more aspects of our personal and work lives. What does this mean for us as humans when we are allowing machines to take over?

What can audiences get out of attending the talks?
It's like going to a hyper-condensed university in three days, where nothing is boring, and you get to encounter a multitude of disciplines in digestible bites.
