The centerpiece of Siemens’ presence at this year’s Web Summit is the Cube
an art installation and experience that draws attention to the power of transformation.
Siemens believes that everyone can transform aspects of everyday life and will
give Web Summit attendees a chance to do just that, beginning with their own
voice. The Cube
will transform the voices of everyone who visits its booth
into a digital work of art. Based on the number of people who participate in this
way, Siemens will then take the transformation a step further by donating laptops
to Portuguese public schools that have joined Portugal’s UBBU
– code literacy
platform. This project enables children between
the ages of six and twelve to develop their own voice by gaining the
opportunity to learn programming, one of the “languages” of the future.
In addition to the Cube
, Siemens will have a lounge dedicated to
developers. This space will have its own program, including the Future Tech Hack
dedicated to improving the future of cities and industry. This hackathon will
take place on November 3, 2021, and the winner will go to Dubai with Siemens to
visit Expo 2020.
Hanna Hennig, CIO of Siemens AG, will be a keynote speaker on the Web
Summit’s Full Stack stage on November 3, 2021. In her talk on “A Codeless
Future? The Rise of Low Code/No Code,” she will explain how important it is to
give everyone access to digital capabilities such as programming – without
having to be experts in the field. This is a vital topic at a time when a
shortage of IT experts is holding back technology initiatives.
Visitors will also have the chance to attend five masterclasses that
will demonstrate how Siemens technology is making a difference in the lives of
people around the globe in areas ranging from autonomous vehicles to water
management – and all the way to surfing industry.
Through its presence at the Web Summit, Siemens intends to demonstrate
that, as a focused technology company, it is in a unique position to combine the
real and digital worlds. In this way, the company is helping to modernize
industry, infrastructure, and transportation by making systems more
intelligent, productive, efficient and sustainable. Today, Siemens is
transforming the daily lives of millions of people through technology with purpose
that helps create a better and more sustainable future. The company’s technology
is everywhere and enables its customers to transform industries such as
manufacturing, buildings, power grids, transportation and healthcare – industries
that form the backbone of our economies.
Siemens also aims to inspire talent to join the company, especially in
information technology jobs. The company operates a global IT hub in Portugal,
the country hosting the Web Summit. To
