Description

We join forces to create a better future!

Brightlands Campus, Heerlen

Our society faces many complex problems, including social, environmental and economic challenges, and much of our focus and investment has been in providing digital solutions where possible. In order to come up with more integrative, and more innovative, approaches we need to borrow from neighbouring disciplines and technological areas. In this new joint session of the Techruption programme, we will bring together the three strands to enable a cross-disciplinary, cross-fertilization between the three strands with the ambition that we can identify new use cases for the technologies we employ, eventually new innovations.

What are we looking for? The Techruption programme involves three different streams of activity - Climate Change,, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain technologies. We would like to explore opportunities for overlapping or integrative opportunities for innovation development. How can Artificial Intelligence address issues in climate change, not just in general but specifically for our current Techruption participants? How blockchain technologies be used for AI applications or vice versa? What opportunities and challenges do climate change issues present too the use of blockchain technology? By exploring these ideas together, our expectation is that ideas, solutions and new challenges will emerge that enrich the whole Techruption programme.

As part of the Brightlands Techruption initiative, we will hold an event on March 14, 2018 bringing together the three strands of work - Artificial Intelligence, Climate Change and Blockchains - with the general theme of “Solving other peoples’ problems, using other peoples’ tools”. This event will be an opportunity to for an interdisciplinary ideation session led by a professional facilitator. All Techruption partners are encouraged to send at least one participant to the event, someone with an open and creative mind.

Date: March 14, 2018, 10:00 - 14:00
