Why Digital Days?

Demystifying AI

Learning Labs

Interactive Debate

In order to address another “hot topic,” which was stated as the n°1 “fear” by the general public during last year’s “TELL” session at Digital Days, Unit8 partnered with Kudelski and the The Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW) to organize a debate on the use and security of personal data. During this session, questions about data security and trust were answered by a panel of experts from Kudelski Security, Vaud’s Directorate-General for Digital and Information Systems, QoQa, SBB/CFF, and of course a Data Scientist from Unit8, Rudolf Höhn.

One Event, 3 days, more impact!

In its fourth year, Digital Switzerland was organised in collaboration with more than 100 partners. More than 80’000 people attended these 3 days of online and physical sessions. The most popular topics and hence the main concerns of the Swiss population were transparency, security, and the impact of digitalisation on our future and personal freedom. 200 Learning Labs were organised and 3’500 people were able to improve their digital skills. Unit8 is proud of having participated in this impactful event and for having contributed to demystifying AI and answering some questions from the Swiss population about their digital future.
