Future Talks

Tulevaisuusajattelun tunnettuutta edistävä Futures Specialists Helsinki moderoi 'Future Talks' tulevaisuuskeskustelua luottamuksen tulevaisuudesta, vaateista ja edellytyksistä. Tapahtuma tuo yhteen muotoilijoita, suunnittelijoita ja futuristeja.  

Kuinka muotoilulla voidaan lisätä luottamusta ja avoimuutta? Mitä tekoja tarvitaan, jotta luottamus syntyy? Millaisia uusia tuotteita, palveluita tai tapahtumia tarvitaan? Mitä luottamus tarkoittaa muotoiluprosesseissa?

Osallistamme yleisöä keskusteluun ja tuomme tapahtumaan muotoilun yhteiskehittämisen menetelmiä. Tulevaisuus tehdään yhdessä.

Tilaisuus on suomeksi.

Endgame of Platform Economy - And What’s Next 22.8.2018 @Hub13

Endgame of Platform Economy - And What’s Next 22.8.2018 @Hub13

From humble nerdy startups to giant data monopolies the vision of platform economy has turned sour. Scandals of Uber and Facebook have shown the ugly side of the inevitable end game of the “winner takes it all” -playbook. It is time to change the conversation about platforms from unicorns and giants to people who create their value. And how that value could —and should— be distributed more equally.

During the event participants will also get a tutorial for Mesensei App and we'll get to try it in our network.

The event is hosted by Mesensei. The space is sponsored by Hub13

About Speaker:

Tuukka Ylälahti is a start-up entrepreneur, an advisor and a business angel, specialising in platform strategies with a global reach. Tuukka is currently the CEO and co-founder of MeSensei — a platform for building private social networks for knowledge transfer.

FSH monthly event / Ethical problems in AI (they are not what you think)

Ethical discussions concerning AI have concentrated on risks that superhuman AI have on our very existence. These are premature. Instead, we are in the middle of a phase where the present day narrow-field AI solutions become more and more integral part of everything we do. So instead of thinking about superhuman AI, we should concentrate on the ethical aspects of the narrow AI solutions: what kind of, and on which principles can AI systems make autonomous decisions concerning ourselves as consumers, and citizens, or what kind of safety measures should we have when humans and autonomous systems co-exist e.g. in the case of autonomous vehicles, or how do the AI solutions affect the job market.
