Smart home, how did our homes become smart?

Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, our visiting expert on the Internet of Things, presented the key developments in our living places as we move towards smart homes during the April 4th 2019 conference at Hager Forum.
Hager has been present in the smart home market for 20 years, therefore this is one of its strategic business areas.

Artificial intelligence for humans

„Best conference ever!“ During his talk on 15.11.2018 at Hager Forum, Daniel Hulme, our guest and expert in artificial intelligence (AI), took the audience on a journey to the world of artificial intelligence with his optimistic and lively style.

  16.10.19 [Article] The future of music: Singing tomorrows? by Cédric Fabre

Prehistoric, traditional or classical instruments, technological development then transition to the digital age, from prehistory to the present day, music has never stopped evolving. So what does the future hold for us? How will music be created? How will we listen to it? How will it be broadcast? What role will AI and digital play?

Journalist and writer Cédric Fabre takes us on a journey into the future of music through a foresight exercise.

 
  18.09.19 [Article] The future of mobility by Leo Johnson

On land, in the sky, on water, means of transport have been evolving constantly since the dawn of time. Developments providing ever more power and speed have emerged, from the horse to the electric car via the locomotive and the plane, but sometimes they are detrimental to our planet. Alternative forms of mobility are appearing, less focused on the use of fossil fuels and thus emitting less carbon dioxide. So, when will we all travel by electric vehicle? What impact will the technologies have on our transport ecosystem? Will these changes be the same everywhere in the world? Leo Johnson, an expert in economics and sustainable development, shares with us his vision of mobility in the short to medium term.

 
  05.09.19 Trend Session #8: The energy transition

Live talk on 30 September 2019 - 13:00-14:00

Reducing our environmental impact by rethinking our mobility, our buildings and our industry through sustainable energy sources, using resources and energies in a smarter and more efficient way, changing our habits, lifestyles and ways of thinking... these are the challenges of the energy transition.

Where are we in this transition? What role will buildings play in energy production, storage and consumption? How are technologies and digital involved in this transition? How will we move around in 10, 20 or 30 years' time? What are the opportunities and the risks for Hager Group and how do we deal with these changes as an industrial company? We will discuss these and many other questions during Trend Session #8!

The best definition of intelligence — artificial or human — that I’ve found is goal-directed adaptive behavior.

Daniel Hulme

The energy system is at the point of transition.

Leo Johnson

The future is not just somewhere we go, we create the future.
