Heading towards a more automated and augmented world, how do we cope with that?
Right now we are in the middle of an industrial revolution which puts the industry’s innovative thinking to the test. In order to meet the global challenges, higher demands than ever are placed on the industry’s skills, changeability and willingness to cooperate. What if big corporates would start thinking like a startup, can it help them win today´s ultra-competitive environment?
In the modern industry digital twins are used – digital images of a machine, process, factory or an entire world. New abilities that create new insights, lower costs, enable us to make faster decisions and strengthen our own intelligence. We can connect internal processes with production that can be answered in real time and anticipate future needs.
Digital transformation is a revolution in the industry. Are we facing a revolution in the industry and what does it take to keep up with tech change today? That’s something we will dive into at Umeå Tech Arena this time.
How to develop an idea
In the afternoon we will start Umeå Tech Arena by being inspired by an entrepreneur, that let us understand how it is to develop an idea. After that you will be listening to pitches from a couple of entrepreneurs from Uminova Innovations Startup Program. The program helps the entrepreneurs to see if their business idea has a potential or not.
And as usual, there is a lot of time for networking and making new friends within the startup- and techcommunity.
