  • How do companies keep the customer in the focus of their digital transformation strategy?
  • How can companies jointly develop innovative and value-added products and services in the Connected Life through cooperation?
  • Which challenges of our society can be solved with connected, intelligent technology and how is the development manageable for humans?

These questions will be discussed in relation to the following focus and crosscutting issues: 1. Business Models/Market/Strategies, 2. Technologies/End Devices, 3. Data Analytics/AI, 4. Safety/Data Protection/Privacy and 5. Digital Assistants.
