Maritime Future Summit: Panel 1 - Building ships for the future

How will ships be built in the future? New technologies like augmented reality will overcome separation in space and support new forms of cooperation. Will agile networks, extensively using the internet, see data-driven designs of smarter ships that come complete with their digital twins? And how will that affect traditional shipbuilding and supplier countries?

Maritime Future Summit: Panel 2 - Digitalisation and automation

Big Data, virtually maintenance-free ships and smart infrastructure 'everywhere' are stepping stones towards the unmanned ship – and they come faster than most thought possible. Opportunity or threat – we should be ready for it. Hype or revolution? Use this second to none opportunity to form an educated opinion on these topics.
