Leaders of Digital Economy Conference
Developing the Soft Computing Mindset
6 November 2018, Grand Hyatt Athens Hotel

We use the term “soft computing” to describe the use of inexact solutions to computationally hard tasks. In the era of exponential technology, business leaders are asked to think beyond the solutions provided by current technologies and to employ “analogue” strategic skills for their organizations to stay relevant and thrive.

Who does it concern?

  • C-suite executives in Digital Transformation & e-business
  • CEOs & General Managers
  • HR Directors
