Turkish Airlines invite you to delve into innovations and artificial intelligence at The Economist Events’ annual Innovation Summit 2018 to be held at the JW Marriott in Hong Kong on September 6th 2018. Convening more than 180 C-suite executives, entrepreneurs and critical thinkers from Asia and beyond, the summit will discuss how (and why) to build companies that harness the potential of AI.

Investors are pouring billions into AI start-ups to see what boundaries the technology can push, and to explore the commercial opportunities that could follow. Using AI to automate tasks and functions could increase efficiency and unlock new markets as machines get better at crunching large amounts of data. It may not be long before AI systems could trade stocks, educate children and run companies. Speakers from business and start-ups will share innovation in and beyond their organisations, and discuss the value and dangers that AI could bring to businesses, societies and economies. The lineup includes:


  • Naveen Menon, president (ASEAN), Cisco Systems
  • Frank Tong, global head of innovation and strategic investments, HSBC
  • Irzan Raditya, chief executive, Kata.ai
  • Jane Zavalishina, president and chief executive, Mechanica AI
  • Alain Crozier, chief executive, Greater China Region, Microsoft
  • Greg Cross, chief business officer, Soul Machines
  • Lucy McCabe, president, Ogilvy Consulting Asia Pacific
  • Ross McCullough, president, Asia-Pacific, UPS
  • Oliver Tan, chief executive, ViSenze
  • Leo Zhu, chief executive, YITU Technology
  • Tak Lo, founder, Zeroth.ai


This event will address questions such as:

  • What value could artificial intelligence bring—to businesses, societies and economies—and what are the dangers?
  • How (and why) to build companies that harness the potential of AI?
  • Where is AI poised to make the biggest impact in Asia?
  • Can it create significant value, or will it undermine existing business models and place jobs at risk?
  • And what will the future look like in the presence of true artificial intelligence?


Turkish Airlines is the airline sponsor of this summit.
