Mr. Ruangroj Poonpol, Chairman of KBTG Group expressed its gratitude to all participants and partners who took part in the event, saying: “This is the first major conference organized by KBTG. Our goal for KBTG Techtopia is to create a platform where we can learn together, help each other grow and take the Thai tech ecosystem to the next level. This year, we have seen how quickly AI is evolving. As new opportunities open up, more and more people are beginning to fear the possibility of AI replacing their jobs in the near future. However, if we have the right knowledge, skills and mindset, I believe we can use AI to augment human capabilities and help us achieve things we could never have achieved before.
The next ten years will certainly pass faster than the last 50 years, so it is up to us to decide whether we want to transform ourselves or lead the transformation ourselves. Now is the perfect time to imagine the world we would like to live in, then explore how AI can help us turn that vision into reality. Once we have the answer, we can think and create said world together. That’s essentially what KBTG Techtopia is all about: discovering new possibilities and realizing the future with a community of people as passionate as you.
In response to Kasikornbank’s business strategies based on ESG principles in pursuit of sustainable growth, KBTG will donate all profits from ticket and merchandise sales to the Thailand Environment Institute, a non-profit, non-governmental organization that focuses on environmental and sustainable development issues.
