We are living in a decade of major disruptions and system shocks: digital challenges, societal shifts, pandemics, climate disasters, war in Europe and the energy crisis, are all pushing us into an accelerated transformation of different levels in society and economy.
And if that doesn't create enough uncertainty, we now have the big issue about tomorrow's employment with the sudden acceleration of AI.
In this presentation, Jo considers the real challenge for companies when it comes to Artificial Intelligence. This is not so much about understanding what technology and platforms are ready to be deployed already.
The important thing is to dwell on how employers are going to take their responsibility to prepare their workforce for the so-called Man Machine Collaboration. Do we radically go for replacing people with machines in order to cut costs, or do we choose to make our employees and thus solutions better through the use of AI? And how do we plan for that in both a strategic and practical way?
Jo started his digital career somewhere in 1994 when he created the first digital agency in Belgium. Now almost 30 years later he can look back on a rich history as a digital entrepreneur..
Jo is a transformation strategist. The good thing is that this profession doesn't really exist, so he doesn’t have to live up to specific standards or conventions.
He is passionated about change and how digital and societal disruptions are impacting everything around us. For over a decade his company Scopernia has been helping all kinds of organisations, from Denmark to Dubai with the big question: how is the core of your business changing?
In his latest book, The World Is Round, Jo describes the big technological and societal challenges that the world is facing. He describes scenarios for the future of which many already became a reality because of the Corona crisis, the climate disasters and the new geopolitical reality we are currently living in.
One of Jo’s real passions is to talk to people, bringing the message of change and optimism across. He has been on hundreds of stages, in about every European country and beyond.
In the last decade Jo (co-)wrote five books on different transformational topics, from dealing with social media, the future of the media industry, digital transformation and now his latest book The World Is Round, about the transformation of society and how to plan for that.
