Topics of the 23rd Annual Summit

With the arrival of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), humanity is facing profound changes in work, innovation and decision-making. AGI promises to solve complex problems efficiently and comprehensively, opening up new avenues for progress in all areas of society.  


The 23rd Annual Summit focuses on how AGI is transforming the corporate world, redefining human-machine interaction and delivering sustainable competitive advantage. Discover how this advanced intelligence enables innovation and what strategies are needed for success in an AGI-driven future - presented by some of the world's top AGI experts and top international executives. 

These topics await you:

  • Retail & Distribution 2034 
    How is AGI changing the customer segments of the future?
  • Music & Entertainment 2034
    Will AGI replace artists?
  • Agriculture & Food 2034
    Will AGI produce food for 11 billion people?

    What will people decide when AGI decides better?
  • Labour market & recruiting 2034
    Will AGI tip us out of full employment and into mass unemployment?

    Are there still strategists and management consultants in the AGI world?
  • Education & personnel development 2034
    What do people need to learn if AGI knows everything better anyway?
  • Society & People 2034
    Is there a positive vision of society with AGI and what future do humans have as the second most intelligent species?

These are our keynote speaches:

  • State of the Future 2034
  • The Big Picture – What can AGI 2034 do and what can't it do?
  • How will AGI change the almost limitless possibilities of quantum computing?
  • How does AGI surpass human imagination in genetics and medicine?
  • What impact will AGI have on nuclear fusion and the future of energy production?
  • What will the cities of the future look like when AGI becomes part of every home?
  • Will AGI awaken the dormant giant trend of humanoid robots?
  • Will AGI get mankind to the moon and Mars faster?
  • Roadmap 2034 – When will what happen in the next 10 years?

Why you do not want to miss this:

  • You will receive growth concepts for your company directly from some of the best international technology developers and learn about their forecasts for the next 10 years. 
     
    At the 4th Annual Summit, we predicted the mobile phone of the future and described how it would work with apps and app stores. 2 years later, in 2007, the iPhone came onto the market with exactly this concept. In the first full year of iPhone sales, Apple's turnover doubled. 
     
    At the 16th Annual Summit in 2017, we predicted that the first functional quantum computers would be usable for business in 2027 and would be used due to a significantly better price-performance ratio compared to traditional data centres. We also predicted the consequences for economic and political decision-making processes. In the meantime, the German government has awarded the contracts for the construction of the first German quantum computers. They are due to be built in Hamburg by 2026. Some analysts and studies suggest that the market for quantum computing could reach a volume of several tens of billions of US dollars by 2034.
  • You will gain security for your future by aligning your company's strategies and plans with the most accurate forecasts for the next 10 years. Our speakers' comprehensive portfolio of topics covers all sectors of the German economy. You will learn specifically for your sector how technological developments, especially artificial intelligence, will influence, attack and change your business model in the next 10 years. 
     
    At the 2nd Annual Summit, we predicted that the traditional music industry with CDs and records would lose around 50% of its turnover and employees due to digitalisation and MP3. At the same time, we predicted that it would ultimately be saved by digital business models. At the time, our image was that music would "come out of the tap in the future." We didn't know the word streaming yet. This year, we are primarily concerned with the question of whether AGI will have completely replaced musicians in 2034. 
     
    In 2013, we described the customer segment pyramid of the future at the 12th Annual Summit - and how the standard segment with its standard providers and standard service providers will disappear in 2023. The current demise of department stores and standard fashion chains in German city centres is a direct consequence of this disappearance of the standard segment.
    How will the customer segments change if AGI itself becomes the customer? 
  • You will gain advantage over your competitors and secure a favourable position in your industry at an early stage. In just 2 days, you will meet technology thought leaders who are normally only to be found in Silicon Valley or China. In addition to the heads of strategy of global technology giants such as Microsoft, IBM or NASA, the most innovative minds (e.g. RyanAir founder Kell Ryan) follow our call every year. We also bring together high-ranking international politicians and professors, such as Dr Terry Winograd from Stanford University, the inventor of design thinking. 
     
    This year, our top speakers will prepare you for a future with AGI (Artificial General Intelligence). 
     
    Grégoire Colombet, former CEO of IBM AI Decision Coordination, will show you how artificial intelligence is revolutionising decision-making in companies. Rana Gujral, CEO of Behavioural Signals, takes you into the world of emotional AI by redefining the boundaries of human-machine interaction.
     
    Hamid Noori researches virtual and augmented reality at the Max Planck Institute. And Dr Melvin Vopson fascinates with his groundbreaking theory that information could have physical mass, inviting you to question the foundations of our reality. (Just to name a few!)
     
    These names are probably still unfamiliar to you. But in 10 years, everyone will know them and their developments. Be one of the few who are already preparing your business for this.
  • Feel the energy of 300 like-minded business innovators. Rousing presentations, inspiring discussions and the unique atmosphere at the Summit will give you exactly the motivation you need to successfully realise your transformation projects. Become part of the 2b AHEAD community with more than 25,000 highly motivated entrepreneurs, board members, strategy and innovation experts.
  • Experience the world's largest and most traditional future event organised by the world's largest futurology institute. No matter how many events you attend – the Summit is and remains the original. For over 20 years, Sven Gabor Janszky and his institute have been bringing together the best of the best in the field of the most important future topics. This year, everything revolves around Artificial General Intelligence. By 2034, AGI will have completely changed our economy and society. Don't miss the accurate AGI predictions of global technology thought leaders for the next 10 years.

We know that you are concerned about the following:

  • Digitalisation & AI: You fear not being sufficiently informed about technologies and future developments and missing out in your industry. You lack access to international experts who are already actively shaping the future and the time to search for reliable sources.
  • Daily drudgery: You are often tired of the tasks of your day-to-day job. You deal with the same old topics and there is a lack of new stimuli from inside and outside your industry. You long for variety, which helps you to develop new ideas and ways of thinking and motivates you to develop your own transformation projects.
  • Search for like-minded people: You feel misunderstood by those around you in your drive for the future and innovation. You want to meet inspiring people who excite you. You want to have conversations and make contacts that will help you in your endeavours for growth and success.
