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.

  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!

 
  28.08.19 [Interview] Biomimetics, its challenges, its future by Idriss Aberkane

The problem for nations and companies today is to maintain a rise in the standard of living and wealth creation while at the same time preserving the environment.

Biomimetics, which consists in taking inspiration from nature to innovate, preferably in a sustainable way, is a possible solution to this problem. Companies, whatever their sector, have become more aware of nature and increasingly draw inspiration from it.

But what are the economic challenges facing businesses? What opportunities are open to Hager? What future trends are emerging in biomimetics? Idriss Aberkane, a specialist in biomimetics, answers all these questions in this second part of his interview.

  29.07.19 [Interview] Biomimetics by Idriss Aberkane

Biomimetics, a science known since antiquity, inspires and fascinates Man. In the 4th century Aristotle observed nature, then in the 15th century Leonardo da Vinci imitated nature by drawing his first plans for flying machines. The latter wrote “Go take your lessons in nature, that is where our future is.” Since then, we have witnessed the birth of many innovations inspired by nature: the aeroplane, Velcro, or the new generation of wind turbines.

With Idriss Aberkane, explore biomimetics and discover how it can help companies meeting current challenges.

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