The event, which took place from May 8th to May 10th, brought together a distinguished lineup of CEOs and industry leaders to explore the latest trends and innovations shaping the future of technology.

Throughout the conference, CEOs such as Dr Andy Palmer CMG, former CEO of Aston Martin; Subodh Kulkarni, President and CEO of Rigetti; Richard Murray, and CEO of Skyline Robotics, among others, shared their insights and expertise with an engaged audience. More details about speakers

The conference covered a wide range of topics, including the transformative potential of AI robotics in various sectors. “AI robots can save lives as they can be used in high-rise buildings for window cleaning, and in Japan, robots help elderly patients where there is a shortage of healthcare workers,” remarked one of the speakers, highlighting the life-saving capabilities of AI-driven technologies.

Data is the new oil or even much more valuable,” emphasized another speaker, underlining the critical importance of data in driving innovation and economic growth.

Discussions also touched upon the essential role of broadband connectivity in enabling digital transformation. “Without broadband, all internet banking and work from home would be impossible,” noted a speaker, highlighting the indispensable nature of broadband infrastructure in today’s interconnected world.

Addressing the need for massive computing power to fuel AI advancements, another speaker commented, “AI needs massive computing power to realize its full potential and drive innovation across industries.

Quantum computing is needed to unlock new possibilities in vaccine development and recession prediction,” highlighting the transformative potential of quantum computing in addressing complex challenges. “Quantum computing is needed because due to limited computing power only 100 variants of vaccines were tested however if higher computing power may be available then perhaps 100,000 variants of vaccines could have been tested”, “Moody can only predict 25 per cent of recession accurately because of lower computing power”

The conference also shed light on the challenges and opportunities facing the banking sector. “Banks are the museum of technologies as they are still using COBOL programming from the 1990s,” remarked a speaker, highlighting the need for modernization and innovation in the financial industry.

Other topics discussed included digital identity, scalability barriers, the shift towards private exchanges, innovation in startups, and the potential of bio-printing technology and quantum computing to revolutionize healthcare and scientific research. The following quotable observations were made on the above topics by distinguished speakers at 2024 Codex.

Discussing the transformative potential of digital identity, “Digital identity can facilitate instant change of value by tokenizing property and each individual, which otherwise may take 3 to 6 months in case of property transactions in the UK.”

“People worry about privacy because of digital identity,” highlighting the importance of addressing privacy concerns in the digital age.

Identifying talent and capital as key barriers to scalability emphasizes the need for investment and talent development to drive innovation forward.

AI can replace all customer service jobs,” predicts one speaker, shedding light on the potential impact of AI on the future of work.

Commenting on the global shift towards private exchanges, One speaker observes, “Across the world, there is a shift from public exchange to private exchange, driven by the need for greater security and efficiency.” “To develop private exchanges, first identify all the transaction points and then digitize them,” outlining a strategic approach to building private exchange platforms.

Innovation is happening mostly in startups,” highlighting the role of startups in driving technological breakthroughs and disrupting traditional industries.

Discussing the potential of bio-printing technology, “Bio-printing of cells may cure incurable diseases and help improve the quality of life.”

Commenting on the security implications of quantum computing, concerns about potential data breaches and encryption vulnerabilities. For example, concerns if Quantum computing from China may break RSA encryption, then data may be lost or even worse, companies may not be able to access their data.

Focusing on the shift from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles is crucial for achieving net-zero targets,” underscoring the importance of sustainable transportation solutions. Only 2 percent of the UK vehicle are electrical and very few charging points.

Construction industry accounts for 37 percent of global carbon emissions,” highlighting the need for sustainable building practices to address climate change.

Carbon net zero is the future, as even construction companies are working towards net-zero buildings,” emphasizing the importance of reducing carbon emissions in the built environment. “Buildings are now even as energy producers,” concludes another speaker highlighting the potential of renewable energy technologies to transform the built environment.
