The finale of the DLD Conference in Munich and social highlight of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos: the DLD Focus Nightcap. The party took place on January 16th including more than 300 guests to the Swiss Alp
Our world is changing at a rapid pace, driven by ever-faster advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and related technologies. Burda's international innovation conference DLD (Digital, Life, Design) is calling for courage, commitment, and curiosity. Under the motto "Dare to Know", DLD founder Steffi Czerny will welcome around 200 international speakers to DLD Munich 24 at the House of Communication in Munich from 11 to 13 January.
The selection of topics is interdisciplinary to encourage dialogue between different ecosystems. New business models in AI/machine learning, quantum, Web3, robotics, spatial computing and biotechnology will be part of the range of topics, as will new developments in energy, media, healthcare, software development, semiconductors, and telecommunications. But DLD's agenda will also include the wider social and geopolitical implications – in discussions with experts and decision-makers from education and politics, philosophers, scientists, climate activists, artists, and musicians.
"From the beginning, DLD has shone a light on how our world is changing as technology advances. We have shown great expertise in identifying disruptive issues and outstanding, often unknown, experts at an early stage. Now we must adapt ourselves, our business, and our lives to the new AI reality, which promises many new opportunities, but also poses challenges. That’s why we need to embrace this reality NOW – through dialogue, discussion, shared learning and engagement. This is the only way we will remain capable of action. DLD is the perfect platform for this.“
Steffi Czerny, DLD Curator
