innovationmauritius.com is an annual event organised by DoraCrea, Mauritius. In a world where Tech has taken over the way business is done, Robotics are becoming more sophisticated, while A.I. and IoT are driving automation with never-seen-before accuracy, we are at the cusp of a turning point in history - the expansion of the Sharing Economy and the emergence of Data Driven Decision Making process. Digital Transformation in knowledge-based industries is gaining momentum. Big DATA Analytics, Business Innovative Practices and the immersion of AI related activities are no longer a choice but a business imperative which require a new set of skills, mindset, and ecosystems to support growth, improve efficiency and customer centricity. It is against this backdrop, that the innovationmauritius.com conference was first organised in 2016 to allow convergence of ideas and industry best practices through a knowledge sharing platform for industry leaders and other stakeholders who are willing to contribute in the fabrics of the Knowledge Economy in Mauritius.
The Conference - #IMC2023
Two Days of Powerful Talks
Thursday 12 Oct 2023
Friday 13 Oct 2023
Our fifth in the series and organised in collaboration with our flagship Partners, the MCB Consulting and MCB Institute of Finance will showcase the latest development in the Generative AI disruption. From Government, Retail, Health Care, Real Estate, Education, BFSL, Construction to Hospitality, this conference spans across a wide range of sectors and explores the ways Data, Generative AI and Sustainable Innovative practices are revolutionising each of them. While the development of AI is creating new opportunities to improve the lives of people around the world, it is usually seen as a barrier to inclusion. Its phenomenal development is also raising new questions about the best way to build fairness, interpretability, privacy, and security into these systems - thus a meaningful part of this conference is on Human Centricity, Responsibility and Ethical Compliance as well as Sustainability. We are bringing together Industry Innovators, Academics, Prominent Thought Leaders, rAI, Data and Design Thinking Experts to share their knowledge and build a network of valuable connections for the establishment of the right Eco-system for meaningful economic development and prosperity - The Knowledge Economy.
Span over 2 days this year to allow the inclusion of University Students to gain access to this powerful knowledge sharing platform on 12th October. Thanks to our Sponsored Industry Collaborators, the session for students is FREE. The 13th October is dedicated for Professionals of private and public sector organisations. The deliberations of both days will be documented in the form of a White Paper to be submitted to appropriate Authorities for reference.
Our Partners & Sponsors
All of us are at the beginning of a journey to understand the economic potential of Generative AI’s Power, Reach, and Capabilities. We need clarity about the use of these tools and to ensure they are as inclusive as possible for a global audience and acceptance. This conference will converge its discussion on 4 main themes: Business Innovation, Human Centricity, Business Sustainability and Ethics and Governance to better understand the inclusiveness of Generative AI.
Generative AI: The Next Frontier for
When it comes to thriving in the ever-evolving and highly competitive business landscape, innovation is the name of the game. Without innovation, companies run the risk of becoming stagnant, an industry follower, or completely irrelevant in the wake of industry disruption. Leveraging on Generative-AI business practices and Design Thinking will help innovative ways of leading business organisation
Can Human Centricity and Generative AI
Human Centricity is considered a central aspect in the development and governance of AI. Enhancing critical thinking, collaboration, and digital proficiency will help to excel in the era of human-machine collaboration. The current users of Human-Centred AI (HCAI) risk downplaying promises of creating desirable, emancipatory technology that promotes human wellbeing and the common good.
Responsible Business with Generative AI:
The Future of Good and Sustainable Business
Sustainability is a pressing concern in our modern world, and as we seek solutions, emerging technologies like Generative AI offer promising opportunities. While it may sound complex, Generative AI offers businesses a variety of benefits, such as enhanced decision-making, increased efficiency, and improved customer experiences. However, there are also challenges associated for its successful implementation and adoption.
Ethics & Governance
AI Governance: Balancing Innovation
and Ethical Accountability
Generative-AI can make significant progress on complex environmental and social problems faced by humans. However, the efficiencies and innovations generated by AI may also bring automated bias and conflicts with human ethics. Data privacy, security, policies, workforces as well as workplaces need to be redefined. The most common ethical principles include a balance between Human Centric and socially beneficial.
Join us as we bring together Keynote Speakers, Renowned AI Experts, Scholars and Professionals from around the world to discuss and exchange ideas about the best practices and challenges in Generative AI disruptions.
