Get an initial overview of the keynotes, summits and forums taking place at d! talk. Experience top-class speakers and experts on topics such as Future Mobility, Artificial Intelligence, Security and Customer Centricity in June.


The German Broadband Initiative (Deutsche Breitbandinitiative), which has been monitoring and driving the expansion of digital infrastructure in Germany for 16 years, will be using the summit to evaluate and discuss the German government’s new strategy for upgrading the country’s digital infrastructure. The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure – a key partner in the initiative – will be presenting its measures for implementing the new strategy as part of its dialogue with the business community and society generally.

Cyber security remains a top priority for all businesses. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are being adopted by more and more industries and are therefore playing an increasingly significant role in cyber security. Machine learning systems that accurately predict and identify attacks are fast becoming standard tools of the trade for cybersecurity professionals. The downside, of course, is that these technologies will also be exploited by cyber criminals. Additionally, ransomware will continue to claim high-profile victims. Recent attacks have taught companies that it is essential to conduct regular back-ups, to keep all software fully up to date at all times, and to strengthen their real-time defenses on an ongoing basis. The CEBIT Cyber Security Summit explores these and other threats and challenges as well as the latest cyber security strategies.

Digitization has given rise to a wave of innovative technologies that are bringing profound change to business and society. The digital transformation of business is now about much more than merely integrating mobile technologies and online shops into existing infrastructure. The key trends today are things like intelligent automation, artificial intelligence and data analytics. The summit will take a look at these new trends and provide a platform where companies can share their experience and insights along the road to digital transformation.

The d!talk healthcare conference at CEBIT 2018 (13. June 2018, 10.30 – 15.30 h) will explore these challenges and their ramifications for patients and doctors in the course of its comprehensive lecture program.

The conference's supporting partners are the German ICT association BITKOM, Gesundheitswirtschaft Hannover e. V., medcon & more GmbH and SKC Beratungsgesellschaft mbH. The conference is where speakers, decision makers and influencers from the digital healthcare and health insurance sectors will meet for quality discussion and networking.

Many speakers have already confirmed their participation, among them Axel Wehmeier, spokesperson for the Management Board of Deutsche Telekom Healthcare and Security Solutions, whose keynote will focus on "Connectivity".

Technological – and, increasingly, political – disruption is transforming markets, business and civil society. Businesses need to respond to this – but how? At the same time, digitization is creating new career paths and job opportunities. So, what does the age of digital transformation mean for women in leadership roles? Experts will be using this summit to share their insights on the opportunities and challenges currently facing women in a digital working world – a world that will increasingly be characterized by diversity, flexibility and transparency.

Artificial intelligence applications and technologies are already transforming the business processes and productivity of many organizations. AI is expected to disrupt and modernize nearly all vertical industries in the near future. Organizations that fail to integrate AI successfully face losing their competitiveness and innovative potential. Featuring a wealth of industry-specific best practices and use cases, the CEBIT Artificial Intelligence Summit will give executives and business professionals a thorough understanding of the most recent and fundamental developments in commercial AI applications and will explore the impacts of AI technologies on society.

Recent years have brought us extensive transformation and breakthroughs in the Internet of Things space. Today, almost every industry invests heavily in IoT solutions. Leading businesses are quickly moving to further implement sophisticated IoT systems that drive their bottom lines. While consumer products, such as wearables and connected electronics, are currently a large part of the market, analysts predict that more than 80 percent of worldwide IoT expenditure through 2020 will be on B2B applications and use cases.

Clearly, IoT systems are set to remain one of the primary drivers of the digital transformation in 2018 and beyond. New businesses models will emerge that are characterized by new work processes, productivity improvements, greater cost efficiency and enhanced customer experiences.

In today’s fast-changing and ever more complex world, businesses are increasingly making customer centricity the cornerstone of their commercial philosophy in a bid to boost their earnings, improve long-term competitiveness and grow their value. At the CEBIT Customer Centricity Summit, marketing experts will talk about the customers of the future, whom they no longer see simply as consumers, but as drivers of innovation, judges of ideas, co-designers of products and marketing partners.

Frictionless, automated, personalized travel on demand - that is the dream of the future of mobility. And the extended auto ecosystem's various elements are coalescing to realize that dream sooner than expected, which means that incumbents and disruptors need to move at top speed to get on board.

Blockchain is much more than the just technology behind Bitcoin. It is a public ledger to which everyone has access, but which no single person controls. It allows companies and individuals to collaborate with an unprecedented degree of transparency and trust. It is cryptographically secure, but fundamentally open. The CEBIT Blockchain Summit will discuss how this game-changing technology may shape the future of the global economy, from healthcare to voting, from insurance claims to royalty payments.
