Challenges ahead include completion of the EU digital single market, the role of cyber-security in geo-politics and the importance of investments and new partnerships in current volatile global dynamics. Is the EU going in the right direction? Is cybersecurity helping or limiting business & cooperation beyond Europe? Are smart cities fostering new battlefields or places for testing new solutions.

ROUND TABLE

Smart-cities under attack? Which way for cybersecurity in digital societies?

Is the digital transition beyond smart-cities opening the gate to a new level of cyber-attacks? Safety, security and privacy represent some of key challenges and vulnerabilities for cybersecurity. This is especially relevant when smart-cities deal with big data, 5G and IoT. Are logistics, public transport, energy and water supplies and health-related services at risk? Which solutions and knowledge are required by administrators, businesses and communities? Can Smart-cities prevent cyber-attacks, while protecting and respecting citizens rights? Which partnerships and cooperation models are needed?

Deep learning in medicine & creation of accurate anatomical models for 3D printing

Medical images have an unfathomable potential to better the quality of healthcare and in turn the quality of our lives. Some of the information can be already captured by looking at the images themselves. In this talk we will explore the use of deep learning to extract anatomically accurate models usable for teaching or therapy planning. We will see the necessary pieces that can transform the life-less images into real-life models. And who knows, one day we might even have spare parts to choose from.
