Track: Future Workplace

Wednesday, November 4

The physical workplace is changing and in many cases dissolving into more and more distributed and remote work. This ads new requirements to the modern workplace where technology is becoming imperative when you wish to manage your team.

The Future Workplace conference track focused on how to do that effectively; balancing control and democracy in our day to day activities as well as our projects. Managing communication, information and KPI's in a way that fosters close and effective collaboration.

The conversation continues in our future workplace peer groups.

Keynote: The evolution of memory

An unusual property of humans (compared with other animals) is language, since for the first time information about long-term survival can be passed by other means than genes.

This has led to the creation of the subject of ‘memes’, as analogous to genes, as carriers of information in human society. Memes have allowed humans to create buildings, cities, and to fly like gods through the sky, albeit often in rather cramped surroundings with terrible food. And to create computers.

So should we regard computers as a product of human genes? And if so, should we care?
