WeQ – the new IQ: How Design Thinking creates a culture of collaborative impact

Prof. Ulrich Weinberg directs the HPI School of Design Thinking.

Prof. Ulrich Weinberg directs the HPI School of Design Thinking.

There is a paradigm shift in modern organizations: from a more analog way to think and act, focusing on competition and hierarchy, towards a more efficient digital mode, fostering collaboration and connectivity. Measuring the performance of individuals (IQ-mode) will be replaced with embracing collaboration qualities and encouraging a “team of teams” habit, where learning and working are blended. The HPI School of Design Thinking is the first university in Germany to offer a design thinking program modeled on the famous d.school at Stanford University in California. During the one-year program, students learn methodologies for collaborating in multidisciplinary teams to deliver particularly user-friendly IT-based products and services. Computer scientists and usability experts, designers and management specialists, biologists, sociologists, and physicians – all work together to achieve the best results.

The future of mobility

Dr. Dirk Hoheisel, Member of the Board of Management at Bosch, will offer some surprising insights into how he works.

Dr. Hoheisel says that we are likely to see more innovation in mobility in the coming decade than we saw in the entire 20th century. Artificial intelligence and connected services are among the key technology drivers with the potential to fundamentally disrupt the existing mobility landscape. Dr. Hoheisel will present concrete examples and future best practices for the industry.

Accelerating the race to AI cars

Jen-Hsun founded NVIDIA in 1993 and has served since then as its president, chief executive officer, and a member of the board of directors.

Jen-Hsun founded NVIDIA in 1993.

NVIDIA is the AI computing company. The graphics processing unit it invented in 1999 has ignited modern AI, with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. Artificial Intelligence and deep learning are revolutionizing every industry. The $10 trillion transportation market is arguably poised to go through the greatest transformation with AI technology that will improve our cities, make our roads safer, and provide new forms of mobility as we infuse cars, trucks, and shuttles with the capability to drive autonomously.
