Nesta quarta-feira, 6, terceiro dia de Web Summit, discussões centradas em tecnologia ganham contornos filosóficos, como nos paineis “Is Siri Sexist?” e “Should robots have rights?”. O futuro próximo também entra em pauta: Fernando Machado, CMO global do Burger King, participa de uma discussão sobre como deverá ser o marketing em 2020 a partir das tendências e aprendizados neste cenário de transformação. Com teor mais futurista, a sessão “How we’ll arrive in 2025” irá explorar um cenário de carros autônomos e micro-mobilidade, assim como as inúmeras dúvidas que acompanham estas mudanças.
O destino das fintechs será discutido sob, ao menos, duas óticas distintas: a do Brexit e a dos próprios líderes de fintechs, sobre quais serão os próximos movimentos do setor. Confira a agenda desta quarta, dividida por temas:
