9:15 am - 10:30 am Květináč vrací úder. Jak se bránit korporátní špionáži?

Čím výše šplháme po kariérním žebříčku, tím atraktivnějším cílem jsme pro hackery. V našem workshopu vám nebudeme mazat med kolem pusy řečmi o tom, že jste v bezpečí. Řekneme vám ale vše, co musíte vědět, abyste měli v boji proti hackerům šanci. Pojďte se s námi podívat na to, jak vypadala korporátní špionáž v minulosti, jaké jsou aktuální hrozby a jak mohou hackeři vaši firmu napadnout i prostřednictvím něčeho tak jednoduchého, jako je květináč.

9:20 am - 10:20 am Jak úspěšně implementovat umělou inteligenci do businessu

Umělá inteligence (Artificial Intelligence, AI) dnes v menší či větší míře zasahuje do celé řady odvětví. Může vylepšit logistický systém, detekovat podvody např. v pojišťovnictví, sehrát za vás šachovou partii nebo doporučit výběr seriálu na Netflixu. Tím to ale zdaleka nekončí. Společně se podíváme na možnosti, které dnes AI nabízí, objevíme nové příležitosti pro její aplikaci v praxi. Ukážeme si příklady úspěchů i neúspěchů při implementace AI a poodkryjeme, co nabídne do budoucna. Přemýšlejte o ní v kontextu vašeho businessu, abyste ji správně uchopili a přinášela přidanou hodnotu právě vám.

10:25 am - 11:15 am „Vodík- Palivo Přítomnosti?“

Blíží se konec automobilů, které jezdí na benzín? Co budeme tankovat na čerpacích stanicích budoucnosti? Nové desetiletí sice slibuje ohromný rozmach vodíkových technologií, první vodíkové čerpačky v Česku se ale dočkáme až letos! Je vodíková ekonomie reálnou vizí nebo pouhou fantazií snílků o bezemisní dopravě? Přijďte na workshop Ing. Václava Bystrianského z UniCRE, zjistěte, jaké překážky nás ještě čekají na cestě za čistou dopravou, a odhalte, zda je vodík skutečně palivem budoucnosti!

11:25 am - 12:25 pm Moderní a udržitelný průmysl - jak financovat inovace v oblasti automatizace, digitalizace, eko-inovací a dlouhodobé udržitelnosti?

Cílem semináře bude seznámit jeho účastníky se současnými trendy v průmyslových inovacích a možnými způsoby jejich financování. Cílem semináře je ukázat, jaké jsou možnosti financování takových projektů, důraz bude kladen na vysoce inovativní projekty digitální a bezodpadové výroby a na projekty cirkulární ekonomiky. Prezentovány budou dotační možnosti, finanční nástroje a další formy veřejné finanční podpory a jejich reálné využití pro malé, střední i velké firmy. Posluchači se též seznámí s konkrétními příklady projektů.

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm Digitalizace obchodních transakcí - jednoduše, rychle, bezpečně s we.trade

Seminář České spořitelny vás seznámí s principy obchodování pomocí digitální platformy we.trade. Jde o mechanismus využívající technologii blockchainu, který umožňuje realizovat domácí a zejména zahraniční obchody mezi firmami hladce, jednoduše a důvěryhodně. Je vhodný pro všechny, kdo v obchodování využívají služeb „trade finance“ čili zapojují třetí stranu (nejčastěji to bývá banka odběratele).Spolu s Barborou a Tomášem se na vás těší ještě Pavel Svoboda, senior analytik v útvaru Denní bankovnictví pro korporátní klienty České Spořitelny, který v rámci projektu we.trade připravoval technické i procesní připojení platformy do prostředí České spořitelny.

Digitální a automatický způsob sjednání, zajištění a financování obchodních transakcí je transparentní, bezpečný a šetří váš čas i náklady. To vše dohromady má v sobě velký potenciál růstu objemu obchodu vaší firmy. Na we.trade lze např. podrobně sledovat celý průběh zakázky a nastavit si notifikace či alerty. Přístup na portál mají firmy výhradně přes svou banku, jde tedy o bankou prověřené firmy, což snižuje rizika nedodržení platebních podmínek smlouvy. Platba se realizuje, až když jsou splněny všechny podmínky vypořádání. Dohodnou-li se na tom účastníci obchodu, může za zaplacení zboží ručit dodavateli banka odběratele.

2:20 pm - 3:20 pm Dieta pro planetu: Low Carb, High Volt

Dýchá, šumí, hučí, zvoní, rozpíná se, kope a nikdy nespí. Naše planeta potřebuje hodně energie, ale v posledních letech ji nekrmíme zrovna zdravými věcmi – spálené uhlí, plastová voda a dezerty z odpadků. Jak dostat Zemi do rovnováhy, aby to s námi dlouho vydržela? Jak podnikat a pomáhat přitom zlepšovat klima?

Pojďme společně s inovátory a energetiky hledat tu nejlepší dietu pro naši planetu, která vás finančně nezruinuje, ale naopak postrčí k novým ziskům. Málo karbonu a hodně zelených voltů?

Baví vás business, udržitelnost a inovace, ale o energetice nic nevíte? Tak to jste tu správně. Přidejte se k naší diskusi a dozvíte se, jak zužitkovat, vyrábět, sdílet a obnovovat elektřinu ve vaší firmě, čtvrti nebo sdílených kanceláři, tak aby to dávalo smysl ekonomicky i ekologicky. Představíme recepty, které můžete zkusit hned zítra.

Login

2:30 pm - 3:30 pm Budoucnost s bankovní identitou

Kde všude se s bankovní identitou budeme setkávat a v čem nám zjednoduší život? Můžeme ji využívat od kontaktu s úřady přes přihlašování do e-commerce platforem až po vzdálené ověření identity jediným údajem. A budeme díky ní moci rovnou i zaplatit!

Přijďte se s bankovní identitou lépe seznámit a zjistit, jak ji můžete využít ve svém podnikání.
Na závěr se s vámi podělíme o příběh našeho týmu, který vyvíjel a nasazoval službu Můj příjem. Co jsme se při tom naučili a kde jsme narazili? Těšíme se na vás! Filip Haering, Petr Zíma a Bohumil Dvořák.

    We at Unipetrol are looking towards the horizon and, together with PKN Orlen, are playing our part in building a prosperous and sustainable future for the Czech Republic. That’s why our two R&D centers are hubs for intensive expansion of innovative techniques and progressive solutions. For example, we are actively developing second-generation biofuels, perfecting pyrolysis techniques for plastic waste recycling and testing economically- ecological sources of hydrogen energy. It is therefore natural for us to be the main partner of Innovation Week, where we unearth pioneering ways to move forward.

At Avast, we stop thousands of attacks a minute, targeting end users and companies. Our goal is to defeat the organized cyber groups that are behind these attacks. But to do so, we have to constantly improve our defensive technologies, to fight attacks using artificial intelligence and other sophisticated methods. The Innovation Week combines inspiration and new ideas with people who care about a better and safer future, which is why we look forward to being there.”
