of Europe's key movers and shakers in tech

In one single day you will see great speakers from the US and Europe, deep-dive into niche discussion groups relevant to your business, network with Europe’s key founders and investors, and enjoy a stunning awards dinner and party. Instead of a massive anonymous “congress”, the majority of The Europas delegates are invited key players and experts, keeping the numbers low and the networking high quality.

Will Ubiquitous AI Lead to Artisanal Cheese for All?

Azeem Azhar asks, "When robots can do every job better than humans, what's left for us?" Robots promise to make perfect products, drive perfectly well, cook perfect meals. In our future, perfection will be commonplace, imperfection rare. What will be rare will be the human-made, the artisanal. Does our post-work future lie in making artisanal cheese? If it does, who will eat it all?

Fake News: Technology Got Us into This Mess, Can It Get Us Out?

The Internet helped democratize news, taking power away from long-standing media outlets and shifting it to smaller, fleeter news sites, and to people themselves, especially with the rise of social media. But now that "news" can be easily manipulated and false information quickly and easily spread, can technology help us find a way to separate the lies from the truth? Our panelists look into the rise of fake news, what's fueling it commercially, and what's being done to combat it.
