ladies and gentlemen it's a great pleasure for me to welcome you all here
00:00:04
in switzerland and especially in the university of applied science that evaluates
00:00:09
i want to get many thanks to uh and conduits to puzzle marked by for as i think that's as
00:00:14
you can see these some poison would be a great success and thank you very much mark for that
00:00:19
the future of our society engineering and maybe even sciences seems to be wide open
00:00:26
science is evolving at an impressive speed supported by more
00:00:30
connected knowledge to the world a new computation capacities
00:00:33
scientists share each discovery of innovation on the flow it
00:00:37
means that each new research result is used in
00:00:40
real time to feed researches of other communities impact of
00:00:44
this research or maybe knowledge production because system
00:00:48
is strong and new technologies we make new futures possible far reaching far reaching changes
00:00:54
will affect key so should tell challenges and i want to do some illustration
00:00:58
the impact of digital information on employment which could be negative or positive
00:01:03
probably depending on the type of jobs and education that people have
00:01:07
the effect of machine learning and deep learning that could especially impacts employment and jobs
00:01:12
uh with a higher education such as uh engineers a physician and so on
00:01:18
the domain of mobility that have to massively changing the future
00:01:21
it could be based on pubic transportation in individually
00:01:24
green vehicles shared autonomous very curious that less trouble things to web tools go working space and so on
00:01:31
for sure in any case this will affect our daily routine and the society as a whole
00:01:36
his sciences considering machine learning new engineering
00:01:40
i'd see life technologies as well
00:01:43
as the empowerment of patients would also disrupt the current status quo
00:01:48
for example more personalised minute scene and global patients management
00:01:52
would be dateline algorithm shaming missing that will
00:01:55
create new challenges also impairment confidentiality in cost indeed this few just seems to be wide open
00:02:02
and based on this assumption we need to ask ourselves how we want to conduct research really innovation
00:02:08
we also needs to define how future engineers will be indicated
00:02:12
and prepared to tackle and adapt to this new future
00:02:16
so should tell issues need new to disciplinary answers
00:02:21
our university of applied science is built on
00:02:24
for schools engineering schools management and tourism school
00:02:28
social work school and heave science schools
00:02:31
and our d. n. a. is to allies applied research and develop and so it means that we work as
00:02:35
much as possible in collaboration with industrial partners some of
00:02:40
our emblematic partners are here in the room
00:02:44
seems for yes we have decided to implement three trans disciplinary research to access this
00:02:50
is also the main key development access from our region the the value
00:02:56
just axes are energy to reason and he'll
00:03:00
just for the anecdotes and a following the famous logo i'm an
00:03:04
engineer to save time please assume that i'm never wrong
00:03:08
i let you imagine how easy it was to convince my colleagues about the added
00:03:12
value of working with other culture like soft skills and someone i'm kidding
00:03:17
but for sure implementing such interdisciplinary culture is a real challenge not only in terms of corporation
00:03:23
truth people but also regarding how bits of people in professional project shaping even fundraising
00:03:30
however we remain convinced that the strategy is the one we need to solve more complex problem
00:03:36
working together to address the main issues i was so it's yeah society will face in the future you will have
00:03:42
i think an overview of some of our working the hillbilly doing to symposium
00:03:48
i just wants to add some more consideration regarding education
00:03:53
firstly and using might term dynamic background i will use the picture of electrical
00:03:58
system the application of fundamental lows and engineering science have led to
00:04:04
an incredible security of supply and we're business of a highly complex system
00:04:08
just think about the huge hello okay once off blackout in the electrical system
00:04:14
our young engineers would have to be real on this only base
00:04:17
and complex base they have to master this knowledge and
00:04:21
we have to continue to teach fundamentals sciences like a basic
00:04:26
sciences engineering for instance and also economic and financial sciences
00:04:32
secondly considering the up a nice and also entertaining piece of this future
00:04:37
upcoming engineers will have to be more flexible more adaptable and
00:04:42
this means that they need to develop new teased use like complex
00:04:45
problem solving a collaboration in the multi disciplinary context critical thinking
00:04:51
i think that these last point is and will be a really
00:04:54
key element for society that is completely overwhelmed by information
00:04:59
with this new social emotional skews it's not what we teach
00:05:03
but may be more how we pitch which is important
00:05:06
our university of applied science as numbers of intonational universities
00:05:11
have made huge progress we have a spatial team academy program here in ins yeah
00:05:16
and this progress is to integrate problem based learning a project based learning to uh make more
00:05:21
a collaboration with what groups from different cultures uh does
00:05:25
aspect will become increasingly important in the future
00:05:29
finally i was students will have to be more creative
00:05:33
more korea's aware of social and cultural with current
00:05:37
events shows that such awareness is still lacking and but that we have to teach and promote
00:05:42
these qualities organising and being part of conferences such as
00:05:46
today's with value adds a industrial representatives researchers
00:05:51
scientists from all of us with the land and eve or we have also our keynote speaker from us say
00:05:57
exchanging our knowledge and perspectives is a great way way for
00:06:01
us to rainfall cycle giraffe openness and and knowledge transfer
00:06:05
so in conclusion i would like to take one more time uh and teach them
00:06:10
aside from the general direction of the university of applied science but it
00:06:13
mark ends deter for the organisation of the symposium as you heard we are
00:06:19
strongly motivated to host such symposium in our work so thank you very much i also want to thank
