WORKSHOPS & KEYNOTES: NEW TECHNOLOGIES

Only those who know which technologies are relevant now and will be relevant in the future can evaluate them and put them to use at their own companies. Executives who are familiar with the trends and are open for changes can develop new ideas and uses.

FROM BLOCKCHAIN VIA THE INTERNET OF THINGS TO 3D-PRINTING

At the NIT you will learn in numerous workshops and lectures about the latest technologies. Together with our renowned trainers and teachers you will check the uses to which they might be put at your company. You will gain an in-depth insight into the world of technology and learn about trend-setting keywords such as blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Actual findings in science and practice enable you to understand modern production processes and try them out in experiments. You will learn what production opportunities 3D printing opens up and, above all, how you can integrate all these changes to some purpose in your business processes.


WORKSHOPS: NEW TECHNOLOGIES

BLOCKCHAINS - HOW THE INTERNET OF TRUST CHANGES OUR ECONOMY

Dr. Johannes Hinckeldeyn
Hamburg University of Technology

2 hrs introductory workshop • October 24, 2018 Special Deal: € 99

As a digital currency, bitcoin has attracted a lot of attention in recent years. However, the underlying technology of the so-called blockchain cannot only be used as a decentralised means of payment. But rather, the blockchain enables the secure exchange of values and the unchangeable storage of data. The field of application ranges from the supply chain to payment processing and data archives.

Workshop language is German.

Get to know the Blockchain

Get a detailed insight into the concept of the blockchain and an assessment of strengths and weaknesses of this technology. Interested participants will be given a scheme to evaluate the applicability of Blockchain technology in their own company. Existing ideas and application examples are demonstrated and made tangible with real-life projects.

Contents:

  • Basics of blockchain and distributed ledger technology
  • Blockchain types and platforms
  • Selection and evaluation of use cases
  • Project examples and exchange of experience

Date

October 24, 2018

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING - 3D-PRINTING

Jochen Loock
M.Sc. Head of Additive Academy at Fraunhofer IAPT

1-day workshop for max. 10 people - on request

Unprecedented Possibilities through 3D Printing

3D printing technology has become an indispensable part of industry. Their rapid development has opened up fascinating opportunities for countless areas such as medical technology, aviation, the automotive industry and mechanical engineering.  But for many companies, this technology is still a dream of the future because they lack an understanding of the possibilities.

What can 3D printing do for you?

Aims of the management training are to work out business cases of additive manufacturing and to sensitize for challenges in technology management. Through the well-founded assessment of our experts, current fields of action, application possibilities and future developments are identified and evaluated.

BLOCKCHAIN - A TAMPER-PROOF TECHNOLOGY FOR THE INTERNET OF VALUE

Dr. Johannes Hinckeldeyn
Technische Universität Hamburg, Institut für Technische Logistik

The cryptocurrency Bitcoin launched the meteoric rise of blockchain technology. With this currency beyond the reach of central control anonymous transactions can be made without a bank account at very little expense. Money can be sent all over the world as easily as sending an e-mail.

Using cryptography and encryption, manipulation is impossible and the user’s identity is protected. But the uses to which blockchain technology can be put go way beyond cryptocurrencies. So-called smart contracts can be used to handle contracts and commercial agreements automatically via the blockchain. The technology can also be used to create transparency in the food supply chain or to reduce the cost of red tape in customs processing. Its potential uses are many and varied.

The lecture gives an insight into the basics and uses of blockchain technology. The examples presented are not just Bitcoin but also smart contracts, decentralized apps, and the blockchain networks Ethereum and Hyperledger. Successful examples and concepts are explained. So are failures and blockchain weaknesses. The lecture ends with a look at future developments and the challenges that lie ahead for the blockchain.
