5:00 - 5:10 pm  Welcome Notes from GlobalSaké Founders

5:10 - 5:55 pm Keynote: Machines that Make Us More Human

Doubting, suffering, wondering, dreaming. These are some of the things that clearly make us human. For ages, machines have been juxtaposed with humans as a mechanic, predictable, hard, and emotionless entity. What if we are now reaching a new point in time, in which we can leverage technology to accentuate precisely the aspects which most distinguish us as human beings?
In this fascinating conversation, we'll cover how Bureau Works approaches AI from a conceptual perspective and how this perspective opens the door for a profound human experience as opposed to flattening out the human creative spirit through mindless automation. Meshed into this conversation, we'll explore the rich perspectives, opinions, and use-case observations from top industry thought leaders, Wada'a Fahel from Zendesk and Luciano Arruda from Automation Anywhere.
5:55 - 6:15 pm Panel Discussion: Product geo-fit adaptation and native origination for adoption in new markets: Japan, Germany, India case studies. Speakers added shortly.
