Unleashing the Generative AI Genie: A Brave New Metaverse or a Nightmare Scenario?
If 2021 was the year for the metaverse, 2022 was the year for generative AI. In the past months, Generative AI took the world by storm, and in 2023, these disruptive forces will converge to kickstart the immersive internet and unleash creativity like never before. In this keynote, Dr Van Rijmenam will explore the exciting and rapidly evolving field of generative AI and its disruptive impact on the metaverse. Generative AI is a form of AI that can create original content, such as text, images, and entire virtual worlds.

How the Metaverse Will Change Business Forever
We are at the dawn of a new era; the immersive era. The metaverse can be seen as the next iteration of the internet: a version that supports immersive, interactive, and persistent online digital experiences. It is not a single place, let alone one specific virtual world. The impact of the metaverse on organizations and societies will be profound, but what is the metaverse, and how will it change everything? In this talk, Dr Van Rijmenam takes you on a journey in the future of the internet, explaining how we can build a metaverse that could unlock trillions of dollars for society.
How the Future of Work and the Metaverse Will Transform the Employee Experience
The future of work revolves around three megatrends with major implications for the employee experience: data, decentralization, and automation. Due to the convergence of technologies such as big data, blockchain and AI, organizations will become data organizations and industries data networks, augmenting human capabilities and optimizing the human-machine partnership. These trends will accelerate the rise of the digital employee and change career mobility, collaboration, required career skills and how organizations manage talent.
Recently, a major trend has been taking the world by storm: the metaverse. The metaverse is only possible due to the convergence of these technologies. This future version of the internet will significantly impact how we work and organize activity. If brands want to attract future Gen Z and Gen Alpa talent, employers need to connect with these future employees in the metaverse.
In this talk, Dr Van Rijmenam will share his insights on how the future of work will radically change in the coming decade by sharing examples of how other companies are utilizing these trends to design the future of work
The Collaboration Era – How to Thrive in an Exponential World
We live in exponential times and simply having a digital strategy focused on continuous innovation is no longer enough to thrive in a constantly changing world. Collaboration among employees, customers and machines is increasingly vital to transforming an organization and building a secure and rewarding networked society.
The organization of tomorrow is a data organization. So, how can organizations use technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence to bring together different stakeholders, collaborate and co-create the future? Organizations need to put the data to work. When they do, blockchain will change the power dimensions between organizations and customers, not the least because of self-sovereign identities and trusted peer-to-peer interactions. At the same time, artificial intelligence will create new human-machine interactions that change the concept of what an organization is.
Viewing your organization as a data organization will completely change all your processes and customer touch-points. When you see your organization as a data organization, a ‘gestalt shift’ will occur; suddenly, you will see your organization from a different perspective. This change in perspective will help event organizers remain competitive in an increasingly data-driven world.
