SGC Business Luncheon with Ralph Haupter


About the Business Luncheon:

The 4th Industrial Revolution: How Digital Transformation and Artificial Intelligence Will Change Everything

A recent PWC survey of CEOs revealed that 86% believed that technology will completely transform their business over the next 5 years – more than any other global trend. Technology today is more ubiquitous, more pervasive than ever before – and increasingly indistinguishable from the underlying core business processes it supports.
Now, we are at the tipping point of the 4th Industrial Revolution, one that is characterized by the fusion of the physical, digital and biological worlds; one that is already dramatically disrupting traditional industries, business models, systems and governance. At the heart of this change is Artificial Intelligence, where software algorithms are capable of performing tasks that would normally require human intelligence.
In this session, Ralph Haupter, President of Microsoft Asia, will share new customer research into the current pace of Digital Transformation amongst Asian businesses, offer examples of organisations across the globe that are already benefiting from this trend and discuss how Artificial Intelligence will change business, government and society.

About the Speaker:

Ralph leads Microsoft’s business in a dynamic region that includes 17 subsidiaries, over 17,000 employees, and over 100,000 Microsoft partners.
