Poslovna vertikala - Javni sektor
Umetna inteligenca je skozi velika vrata vstopila v javni sektor v Evropi in drugod po svetu. Drug za drugim se vrstijo novi inovativni projekti in dobre prakse, ki spreminjajo pričakovanja, kaj vse zmorejo sodobne digitalne tehnologije. Kje pa smo na tem področju v Sloveniji? V pripravi so nov vladni načrt in smernice za uporabo umetne inteligence, ki se naslanjajo na evropsko direktivo in Evropsko zavezništvo za umetno inteligenco. V vsebinskem sklopu, posvečenem javnemu sektorju, nas bo zato zanimalo, kakšna je vloga države pri uvajanju najnovejših tehnologij. Kakšen vpliv ima ta na razširjenost in uporabo najnovejših tehnologij v družbi? Koliko je naš javni sektor sploh seznanjen s priložnostmi, ki jih prinaša umetna inteligenca, in ali lahko tudi v slovenskem javnem sektorju že najdemo inovativne projekte z umetno inteligenco? To so le nekatera vprašanja, na katera bomo iskali odgovore, da bi bolje razumeli, kako se spreminja javni sektor danes in kaj vse bo še prinesla prihodnost.

I am Business Development Manager at Newton Technologies Adria, company that offers new opportunities in the field of computer speech recognition. I am dealing with business and product development strategy focused on financial gain, market research to identify new markets and customer needs, time-integrated plans for product introduction and marketing strategy development. As someone who comes from the world of physics, mechanics and modelling, I’m a very analytically trained person who has been taught to react quickly to changes - my career starting point was of scientific/technical background and from day one, my focus was on putting technology to its best use. I am a very persistent person with history of proving people wrong when it comes to „it can’t be done” statements. I graduated from the Faculty of Science at the University of Zagreb and during my education I gained further specialization knowledge and ‘know how’ at Universities of Utrecht and Basel. My work experience began during high school education - I was part of a team of physicists who developed hardware and software for extrasolar planet detection. As a student I worked as an assistant on several courses of geophysics, tectonics, mechanics and mineralogy, and later as a Sales Representative at iStyle company where I met the B2b segment for the first time, which was surprisingly great experience. Before graduating I was selected from over 3000 applications to join INA oil company prestigious graduate training program where I worked on tectonic reconstruction, basin modelling and raising awareness of new technologies and their application regarding exploration process and risk reduction. As Business Development Manager, my ambition is to ensure the company's prosperity relying on innovative technologies and agile methodologies, especially during logistics planning, strategic thinking and business strategy realization. In my free time, I enjoy freeride skiing, alpinism and I’m quite fanatic about aviation, sport, dogs and medicine.
