Digital revolution appears with new inventions day by day offering such solutions that are capable to have a dramatic influence on our everyday life – all in the near future. But do these have any unwanted negative side effects?
Self-driven cars, virtual and extended reality, artificial intelligence, robots - just a few of the innovations that digitalization has brought to our lives. Some of them have already become part of our life or they will much earlier than expected.
A Professionals’ Day was arranged with the title of ’Digital Technologies – Future is Closer than We Would Even Think’ by EMFIE (First Hungarian Responsible Innovation Association).
The aim of the event was to draw attention to the potential opportunities in digital technologies and their inherent risks through concrete examples - by introducing a vision of responsible innovation to the audience. At first the participants could learn about the potential benefits and dangers of self-driven cars and the fact that the tests are already in a state of progress that nowadays automotive drivers are present in 77 cities of the world - lectured by Miklós Lukovics (EMFIE). Gábor Szegvári (PC Trade Systems Ltd.) gave prominence to infocommunication dangers and advised the listeners with tips regarding prevention. Máté Ballai (Modern Business Program) presented the latest digital solutions and opportunities available to domestic businesses, enabling small and medium-sized enterprises to gain competitive advantage. The new Digital Data Protection (GDPR), which is going to be put into force on 25 May, was introduced by Zoltán Papp (Modern Business Program) followed by Péter Lajos (Social Steps) sharing information about social media trends available for small and medium businesses. The attendees were dazzled by the potentials of extended and virtual reality presented by Richárd Dönczi (CreatIT Kft.). Finally, Zoltán Gyarmati (Csongrád County Local Government) was talking about the ways of developing traditional industries in Csongrád County with digital tools.
