Internet technologies

Traditionally, during the Internet technologies section you will find out the latest news and trends in software development, creating web services and setting up DevOps processes.

This year, again, we will pay much attention to the use of artificial intelligence technologies, machine learning, the construction of high-load systems and the architecture of large projects.

As we always used to do, this year we will try to review the current situation on the world market of front-end development: which platforms and frameworks remain / are gaining popularity, and which are the candidates to an “exit”.

Future (technology, business, education, society)

“The time of static stability has passed us by… The new kind of stability has to be dynamic stability. There are some ways of being, like riding a bicycle… It is not our natural state. But humanity has to learn to exist in this state”. Astro Teller, Alphabet X

The world is constantly changing around us, and those changes are getting faster. It doesn’t matter where you are: Kyiv, New York, Singapore or Zhmerynka – the days when “standing firmly on your feet” was synonymous to success are over now.

We will talk about the future and the chain reaction of changes for business and society, caused by the drastic development and spread of exponential technologies. Also, about the ways to prepare ourselves for these significant changes, and, what is more important, about the ways to prepare kids as they will have to live their lives in this very different world full of new challenges, new professions, new dangers. Most of these new issues seem so fantastic to us today, as SpaceX Falcon Heavy would’ve looked to our grandparents half a century ago.

Latest news, incites, and cases, as told by SingularityU Kyiv and famous professionals in their reports.
