Panel: Perspectives and real-life application of AI in Croatia
IEEE Croatia Section and Technology and Engineering Management Chapter
Room: Main

Summary: Artificial Intelligence is one of the hottest topics at the moment. In recent years it has been attracting the equal attention of the academia, industry and policy makers. The topic itself is far from new, especially scientifically and engineering wise, but its true deployment raises many questions: technological, legal/ethical, economic. AI is without a doubt a technology for the future, but it is reasonable to ask what are its true perspective and application in a foreseeable future in Croatia and world wide. These and many other questions will be discussed on this round table with our distinguished guests.

Moderator: IEEE Croatia Section

Technology Innovation and Smart Industries in Small Open Economies - challenges and opportunities
Room: Main

In a quest for a cheaper labor force in the last fifth of the last century, the translation and relocation of production capacities have produced rapid deindustrialization of western economic and industrial blocs, with the United States and Western European countries leading the process. Entering into the 4th Industrial Revolution this trend started to change, and manufacturing is once again being widely considered as the backbone of one's national economic development. On the other hand, various global crises are hitting national economies hard and thus exposing their vulnerability and lack of resilience. The question arises, which form of national strategic positioning, in the appropriate conjuncture, is appropriate as a response to the challenges of a turbulent and uncertain global economic and technological race accompanied with crisis hits? What are the challenges and opportunities that small open economies, Croatia like, are facing in this fierce race when the technology proliferation and innovation is in question.

PNL3: Panel: Digitalisation and Industry 5.0 - Implications on different domains

Horizon 2020 RISE OpenInnoTrain
Room: Main

Industry 5.0 is the new paradigm to achieve a more resilient, human-centric and sustainable society (European Commission, 2020). In this context, the panelists focus on shining a light on the implications upcoming for different work environments and domains.

Does the Industry 5.0 paradigm imply any ongoing adaptations/changes already? Where are more efforts required? Or which domain is a forerunner?

Each panelist will be giving their understanding, perceptions and perspectives on the paradigm and followed up by an interactive discussion.

EFI: Entrepreneurial Forum I

IEEE: how our scientific and professional association can help entrepreneurs in their endeavor?
Room: Main

Innovation often comes from brilliant minds who like to think out of the box, explore new directions, and look to new problems and needs. Often creative people feel the urgency of developing their ideas in a new environment and build their own workplace, following their dreams. Entrepreneurs are visionary people who create the future.

However, entrepreneurs have also to face real-world problems to make their dreams a reality.

This panel offers the opportunity of becoming aware about how IEEE can support entrepreneurs in the various phases of their journey, from understanding the problems to ideation of solutions, from deepening technical knowledge to advancing entrepreneurship skills. Specifically, this panel presents and discusses the resources and services conceived by IEEE to assist the entrepreneurs in the various activities.

Moderator: Robert Bierwolf
Agenda:

  • Introduction (Vincenzo Piuri)
  • IEEE Entrepreneurship Committee: IEEE resources and services for entrepreneurs (Joanne Wong)
  • IEEE Region 8 Industry for Action Committee: What IEEE Region 8 can do for entrepreneurs? (Mohamed El Dallal)
  • Q&A

EFII: Panel: Engineers as Innovation Leaders: How to Prepare the Next Generation?

Room: Main

Engineers have become essential to lead innovation projects in all sectors, well beyond traditional roles in product-focused organizations. Engineering Management is increasingly required as a core competence, and its focus on leadership skills and hybrid acumen is leading engineering schools to rethink their curricula. Among key challenges, programs must be updated to prepare the next generation to deal with digital transformation in all its forms. Graduates must also consider alternative professional certifications, where engineering, management, and digital expertise are blended beyond traditional curricula.

This panel brings together co-authors of the TEMS Body of Knowledge (TEMSBOK) to debate how to best prepare the next generation of Engineers as Innovation Leaders. The discussion will address several ongoing projects, among others: how to best position digital transformation within the engineering management curriculum; what distinguishes engineers for innovation leadership in the digital age; where should engineers acquire professional certifications focused on hybrid skillsets; why should academic and professional associations federate their efforts, especially for BOK development, and develop a unique open-source proposition geared toward research-practice joint partnerships to keep BOKs continuously up to date.

Panelists:

  • Stéphane Gagnon, Chair of Business Technology Management (BTM) Body of Knowledge (BOK) Development Team, BTM Forum, and Associate Professor, University of Quebec, Canada
  • Elif Kongar, Chair, Department of Technology Management, and Professor of Technology Management and Mechanical Engineering, School of Engineering, University of Bridgeport
  • Gustavo Giannattasio, Chair of Technical Committee TEMSBOK, IEEE TEMS
