Future of Works

 

Event n.6.

 

Wednesday June 10 at 4.30-6PM - What makes information “reliable” and what does it mean for you?

Google’s mission is “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” While they do a pretty good job at that, we are left with discerning what reliable and less reliable information we can use. Did you know that Google, YouTube and Facebook massively use Wikidata and Wikimedia projects as their source of information?

 

How does Wikidata work? Why could it be important for you and your organization?

During this webinar, meet the Swiss Wikimedia Chapter and a representative from the Wikimedia Foundation Research Team and learn what is behind the 8th most visited website globally (Wikipedia). Wikidata, Wikimedia, Wikipedia etc.…a whole new global information infrastructure, working with a whole new global governance system.

Future of Works

 

Imagine 40 lifelong learners that meet to spend two hours together and share their experiences on current themes that impact their businesses and organizations. This kind of collaboration is the vision of the cycle of exclusive events called "The Future of Work," which will be held at Franklin University Switzerland. The scope of these events is to build a community that enjoys sharing stimulating questions and innovative solutions.

 

There will not be many opportunities to stay seated, but instead, ways to get to know each other, confront each other, and go into detail on themes such as new technological trends, constant change in the work environment and the mutable geopolitical equilibrium.

IACCM Global Virtual Conference

 

WHY we organise this Global Virtual Conference?


Over the past 10–15 years, virtual teams have developed from an “exotic” niche phenomenon to an established work design in many organisations. Due to digitalisation and continuous development of new and established tools for virtual collaboration, today’s business landscape has changed tremendously so that global virtual teams (GVT) become the main form of “organisation” across cultures.

Start: 26.06.2020, Start 14:00 CET
