The 9th TIME Economic Forum is a common project of the two main chambers of commerce for the digital industry in Poland, that is, the National Chamber of Commerce of Electronic Industry and Telecommunication (KIGEiT) and the Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications (PIIT). Our goal is to shape the specialisation of the Polish digital industry, according to its possibilities and aspirations. The aim of all the previous editions of the TIME Economic Forum (TIME EF) was to present the achievements of the Polish industry and to discuss the possible directions of development of the ICT industry (electronics, communications and information technologies).
We proved that the digitisation process, perceived as the third stage of the Industrial Age is gradually coming to an end. In this way we wanted to demonstrate that the development of smart software commences a period of radical changes, not of technological, but also of economic and social character, which will probably be larger and more important than the changes that have taken place so far and that have been related to the fact of entering the era of industrial development. The extent to which the entire country will be prepared for the upcoming changes shall determine the future of Poland. That is why, this year’s TIME Economic Forum shall be dedicated to the issue of artificial intelligence.
