About ICDL 2016


Smart Future is about understanding, visualizing, and exploring the possible scenarios of the future today, to be able to better prepare ourselves. This will help us to design the future based on set goals. Better preparation for the future enables us to alter the direction of an entire marketplace, field, or to prepare industry or prepare for the outcome. It is also possible to make greater impact in the future through present actions.

Predicting the future, better preparing for the future and taking requisite actions to apply this knowledge to create the future - these are the three strategic objectives of Smart Future. This mega event, ICDL 2016, will uncover the processes related to these issues.

Having the strategic knowledge about the key trends that will shape our future might enable us to achieve success and it may make a difference in the world- innovate, create, discover or fix something that would touch millions. In simple terms, we are fast passing through the digitization era and entering into knowledge society. Therefore, the knowledge of associated technologies and processes is equally important to pursue. Knowledge of possible trends is essential in order to prepare to manage present risks and it will facilitate decision-making by converting challenges into opportunities in the future. While a deeper understanding on the trends that will shape the future is 50 per cent, the other half is about taking actions, designing innovations, formulating plans, and crafting strategies, tactics, and collaboration to shape the desired future. This is true on personal, organizational, national, and global levels.
