The World Summit on

Innovation & Entrepreneurship

DESIGNING INTELLIGENCE, SHAPING WORK

“Designing Intelligence, Shaping Work” is about re-imagining and applying a strategic design approach for creating intelligent human/machine innovations that use higher forms of Artificial Intelligence to augment human capabilities and transform work.

The story fuses several innovation practices, leadership conditions, design capabilities and technology catalysts to create Intelligent Innovations [x] that utilize smarter human/machine partnerships to advance business and enrich lives.

The 2019 Edition is packed with practical skills, ethical data methods, smart devices, explainable products, collaborative interfaces, intelligent places, exponential materials, interpretable algorithms, effective managerial models and symbiotic systems that improve hybridity between humans and machines and use their combined power to drive breakthrough business performance and shape the future of work, lifestyle, health, services, industrials, transportation and cities.

WORLD SUMMIT INNOVATION FUSION APPROACH

SMARTER INTERSECTIONS, SMARTER INTELLIGENCE

Enterprises often struggle to find a strategic balance between creativity, functionality, and livability. We call this The Intelligence Trilemma. The program of the 2019 World Summit will solve the tension that exists around the Trilemma by enabling enterprises to design and create Intelligent Innovations [x] that shape business and humanity.

We will curate experiences that bind stories from across the Trilemma to innovate a new chain reaction of powerful ideas and images of Intelligent Innovations. A beautiful synthesis between new human skills, leadership models, market segments, social standards, product controls, place-making guidelines, environmental aspirations and technological breakthroughs which might have been regarded as disconnected.

CREATIVITY
Disrupt by Design to 
Drive New Transformations

FUNCTIONALITY
Apply Intelligence to
 Shape Work & Society

LIVABILITY
Tap into Nature’s Wisdom to 
Create Higher Intelligence

The 2019 Edition will use several conversational formats and converges the world’s finest people from design, business, technology, science, sustainability, ethics and law to explore how to harness artificial intelligence, internet of things, digital commerce, and experience engineering to create the world’s next great intelligent innovations.

Are we at the cusp of a design revolution TO INNOVATE HIGHER INTELLIGENCE THAT CAN SHAPE THE WORLD?
