Democratizing Energy

Georgios Lakkotrypis
Former Minister of Energy,
Trade, Industry and Tourism

As the planet undergoes its transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, the need to accelerate this path has become imperative, mainly for environmental, but now, because of the energy crisis, and for economic reasons. In this presentation we will examine how the evolution of energy production, from hydroelectric limited practically next to or near rivers, to internal combustion production from large power plants without geographical limitation, to a model of dispersed production and storage systems, has democratized energy. The evolution of technologies has now placed the consumer at the center allowing him to be simultaneously the producer, manager and consumer of an energy source that is available to everyone, that of the sun.

Computational Creativity

Savvas Chatzichristofis
Vice-Rector of Research and Innovation
Professor of AI Neapolis University Pafos

Man, through his creativity, gave birth to the arts and gave color to life. What would humanity be like without Beethoven's ninth symphony? Would love have the same meaning if Shakespeare didn't praise it in Romeo and Juliet? How would we define the standard of beauty if Leonardo da Vinci didn't paint the Mona Lisa? Would Paris be as beautiful without the Eiffel Tower? Machines may surpass human nature in the way they solve mathematical problems. Still, they cannot, in any case, perceive the flight of activating emotions and the dialogue with the soul. Or can they? 

The Science of Getting from A to B

Dr Melina Moleskis
Decision scientist & Behavioral economist 
Founder of meta-decisions

Goals are great. Only there is no magic formula for getting from where you are to where you want to be. Whether your goal is getting more customers, more revenue, motivating your employees, having a successful digital transformation or, at a personal level, getting more exercise, eating healthily and doubling down on energy efficiency. No magic formula. But there is a systematic approach. Used by modern businesses of all sizes - from giants like Google to start-ups – as well as governments, NGOs, individuals. The approach is based on Behavioral Science and it's about understanding how we (really) make decisions. Hint: We are not as rational as we like to think. Are you ready to reach your goals?

Copy… Paste…. / Forget the "Scanner" syndrome inside you and create! Have you ever thought that you are a remote controlled machine that simply executes instructions? You look for ready-made solutions and simply copy what is happening all around you. The “Scanner” syndrome can only be defeated if you have the courage to say NO to the usual and take risks!

Less influences, more you!
