5G will be one of the important topics of the largest digitalization conference in Estonia, Digital Hub this year. November 10, the day of the conference, will mark exactly one year since the launch of 5G in Estonia. We will also discuss the future of the Estonian digital society, talk about technological and IT trends.

The Digital Hub conference on digitalization, organized by Telia in cooperation with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, will be held on November 10 at the Culture Cauldron for the second time. The speakers will include reputable digitalization visionaries from Europe and leading opinion leaders in Estonia, who will talk about the future directions of digitalization and share new ideas and the latest information about the technological landscape. The extensive conference program includes about 50 discussions and speeches.

Andres Sutt, Minister of Entrepreneurship and Information Technology, stresses that the digital society of Estonia’s future is full of digital power. “This means that we are taking advantage of the constantly evolving digital technologies, which provides a good basis for creating and testing innovative solutions to further bring them to the world. However, this can only be done in cooperation. The Digital Hub conference brings together the entire Estonian IT community from both the private and public sectors, and I am delighted that we can join forces, share experiences, and discuss what the government can do to encourage innovation and how we can best use new technologies for the development of our digital state ”.

5G is pushing the boundaries

According to various forecasts, 5G will become the fastest growing and most influential technology today, and is likely to change our daily lives so much over the next ten years that it is difficult for us to imagine.

5G technology outperforms its predecessor, 4G in many ways, offering up to ten times faster connection speeds, up to ten times lower latency, up to 100 times more IoT devices served, and up to 90% less power consumption.

The topic will be opened by Allison Kirkby, President and CEO of Telia Company. “5G technology is the foundation for the next digital leap, pushing technological boundaries further and further,” Kirkby said. “This is a big step forward that will change our current knowledge of innovation and creativity. With 5G, we, as businesses, government agencies and society at large, are gaining a whole new digital experience. ”

The digital future brings changes to both the economy and human relations

One of the main guests of the conference is journalist, writer and digital visionary Andreas Ekström, who talks about the development and situation in society through digital change. In his speech, Ekström delves into what are the key issues for our digital future to be discussed and what the digital future will bring in the context of economics, human relations and citizenship.

Another interesting keynote speaker is Physician Engineer Derek O’Keeffe, who talks about the digitalization of the medical sector. “The growth of digitalization in this area accelerated only last year, largely due to the spread of COVID-19,” said O’Keeffe, who believes that we have now reached a unique stage in healthcare. “We can periodically remotely monitor the physiological parameters of our patients and, based on these large datasets, use artificial intelligence to create case-based reviews to improve patient outcomes,” O’Keeffe said.

IT discussion focuses on legacy software

The event will also include a panel discussion of the IT Leaders’ Club, moderated by IT expert Ann Saar. The topic of this discussion is IT Legacy, that is, the problem of outdated software. The discussion focuses on what to do with legacy software that once built an enterprise IT solution but is no longer directly used. Is it possible to get rid of it as safely as possible? What are the risks associated with this?

In the expo zone of the event, there are leading technology companies that will present their latest solutions. Zone.ee resident hacker Peeter Marvet will share useful information with businesses in Guru Bar.

The event will ensure compliance with all applicable safety regulations.
