Keynote speaker

Prof. Dr. Gunter Dueck

Prof. Dr. Gunter Dueck

Mathematician, writer and former innovator at IBM.

His view of the world may seem unconventional to some. His nickname „Wilddueck“ also confirms that he is a lateral thinker. He interferes and questions, sometimes relentlessly.

On his homepage countless internet users read his opinions on various topics and every day the number of his fans on his YouTube channel increases. He worked as a mathematician at IBM for almost 25 years and was involved in the technical orientation and strategic planning of the group, among other things.

Since 2011, Prof. Dr. Gunter Dueck has been in „retirement“ and is working on ideas for improving the world. He is happy to pass this on, for example at the digital conference go2018 and in numerous TedX talks.
