“I am an increasingly concerned optimist.” That’s the message Siemens Chairman Jim Hagemann Snabe opens his DLD20 speech with. Echoing the words of Charles Dickens, Jim Snabe declares the digital revolution as the best of times and the worst of times. “With current technologies we are able to solve most of the problems”, he says. “But we are solving the wrong problems and its time we got our act together.”

Snabe’s vision: “Europe should be the human version of how we use technology […] To enhance human beings, make them more creative and unleash their potential.”
