Technology advances are blurring the boundaries between the digital and physical worlds. Intelligent, interconnected systems now support activities along the entire value chain. The AI is changing how we work, how we produce and will change the way we live.

What does this mean? It means reduced costs and improved efficiencies. It means greater speed and scale. It means smarter products and services. It means evolving from disrupted to disruptor.

The conference will examine how is Bulgaria placed in this sea of change? What are the Bulgarian companies and industries in the country doing to become part of the new wave? What will this mean for the working force, for the growth and for region development?
