The state of the tech landscape in 2019

Whilst we are still a long way away from reaching true AI via the singularity, cognitive technologies are certainly here to stay! 2019 has seen, and continues to see, the technology advance further, and here we will assess where AI is today, and how it will impact your business and your own communication experiences with brands and objects in the coming year.

 

Matching emerging tech to your business needs 

We discuss common business challenges affecting multiple industries, chart current and emerging ways to address the challenges and propose a methodology for travelling the scoping and sourcing journey. Attendees will receive insights about where to focus the emerging technologies, how to reconsider the legacy and the possibilities for future change.

Legacy Systems

Modernising legacy systems in your organisation

As the industry evolves at an alarming pace, we're under great pressure to update or completely change our systems. Doing so when we have years of data and processes in place is a huge feat for anyone. In this session, we will look at case studies of implementing large scale digital changes and how adoption was handled and encouraged across orgs.

 

Machine learning and deep learning: Steps towards true AI

In this session we examine and predict the possible future applications and developments of machine learning and deep learning as cognitive tech dominates the conversation around the future of the industry and society as a whole.


Women in Tech Dublin is about creating real change, together

Ireland’s tech industry is ahead of the game for gender equality, with women in technology statistics revealing that Irish women in tech are the second-highest paid globally. Despite this progress, there’s still a long way to go. Women continue to be a minority in the technology sector on a global scale, with men occupying approximately 76% of all computer science jobs.

Changing the state of play is possible and we are leading the way in the fight for gender equality in tech. The power of Dublin's digital economy is vast and there’s no better time to ensure that you’re part of the conversation.

Expect keynote speeches, workshops, and technical classes on these topics:

 

Moving the conversation on from gender diversity 

Intersectionality considers different systems of oppression, and specifically how they overlap and are compounded. This is increasingly important because more companies are giving attention to D&I than ever, but often with a narrow, single-minded strategy: “We’re focusing on gender first.” This approach, while well-intended and increasingly positively impactful, is not the way forward for true progress. Here we consider what organisations can do to adopt a more intersectional approach to D&I.

 

Spotting and calling out micro-inequalities

 

Small instances and off-hand statements are often the majority of how we detect unconscious bias. These small instances can build up to a lack of belonging and lead us to question our 'fit'. How do we spot these behaviours and what can we do to stop them from happening? We explore how to pro-actively discuss and stop micro-aggressions in the workplace.

 

Male Allies Tech Business

Creating allies: Bringing everyone on board with D&I

Men, as the majority player in the tech workforce, have a very important part to play in paving the way to increased female tech representation. But specifically, what can and should, men be doing to help pave the way for more women? We will consider this and more during this presentation.

 

Discussing the gender pay gap with your employer

Gender Pay Gap Reporting made a splash across all industries in 2019 resulting in several countries passing legislature for mandatory reporting and many changes at an organisational level since. The results, as many of us expected truly pulled back the lid on just how deep this issue runs. Many of us now wonder, how do we open up this conversation with our employers?
