Summary of the 2023 opening meeting of Digitalrush, the Technion, and Accenture

We were very happy to meet with over 200 digital leaders. Some of them are old friends but some of them are new friends.

Ido Yavnai led the demonstration areas where the invitees experimented a little with AGI and learned in Oculus Metaverse. Thanks go to Eyal Farkash, Dr. Levi Shaul, Elad Goldman, and Yarden Yardeni who demonstrated AGI tools, and to Tamar Ben Ari, Shalhevet Segal, and the group of students who showed a class in Metaverse.

After the demos, eating, and networking (schmoozing,) Prof. Sivan gave his keynote lecture: “The AGI Elephant” which gave context and laid out the status of technological development. The CEOs panel followed where they addressed the issues of technology in business – each one in his/her own field. We ended the day enjoying popcorn while watching the movie Avatar: The Way of the Water.
