The Digital Summit Liechtenstein, part of the digital-liechtenstein.li initiative, welcomed 400 decision makers, announced a statement from the Principality of Liechtenstein. The programme featured seminars on topics such as artificial intelligence and internet security and boasted partners including Oerlikon Balzers, FL1 and the University of Liechtenstein.
Risch was joined by two other renowned speakers: Liechtenstein futurologist Karin Frick and Lino Guzzella, President of the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH). In her talk, Frick illuminated artificial intelligence, describing how it could change how humans make decisions in the future. Guzzella looked at the social benefits of digitalization and highlighted the importance of education and further education. In his closing remarks, Risch elucidated that it was all about “getting down to business” and making digitalization “more tangible” to the population.
“We are delighted about the interest shown in digital-liechtenstein.li’s different activities,” commented project managers Markus Goop and Patrick Stahl in the statement. “The Digital Summit Liechtenstein plays an important role in the whole concept. That its premier was sold out and welcomed such a top-class audience shows how great the need is for such a platform.”
