Pascal Kaufmann – Knowledge Management during the Storm of the Digital Revolution
After graduating from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and Northwestern University of Evanston (USA), Pascal worked at the renowned Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, as well as on many projects to study the interaction between the brain and the machine. The purpose was to detect the puzzles of neural networks and brain activity.
He studied neuroscience and economics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and Northwestern University in Evanston in Illinois. He has several years of expertise in financial services and also business development at Julius Baer Bank. In 2010 he founded Starmind together with Mark Vontobel.

Topics of Pascal Kaufmann’s speeches
New technologies – Impact on business and employees.
There are many technical solutions in the field of knowledge management. These scale from databases and social networks to artificial intelligence tools. What technology ensures maximum benefit? In recent years, businesses have seen a clear trend based on their practice. Many companies rely on self-learning technologies that provide the know-how of the whole group to each member of the group individually.
In the area of digitization and “cultural change,” a new form of cooperation and connection was made feasible. A software named Brain Technology offers this innovative and advanced solution. It provides insights into the functioning and performance of artificial intelligence in alliance with futuristic “smart jobs.”
Biology and business administration: the ideal symbiosis
Starmind’s Brain Technology relates to the functioning of the human brain, which connects and brings possibilities for a dynamic combination of individual brain cells. Starmind Technology continuously learns for itself who has the know-how and experience in the corporation. Subsequently, it generates an internal network in real time that connects knowledge with employees. As in the human brain, where cells are interconnected, new connections form and stimulate the redirection to achieve the best results. Inspired by the latest approaches in brain research, Starmind turns to the right specialists with questions similar to those of the intellectual connections of human brain cells.
Knowledge management and the digital revolution: how artificial intelligence supersedes knowledge management
In recent years, companies have noticed a clear course in knowledge management. Traditional systems break because of high complexity, low employee acceptance, and expensive implementation. More and more businesses around the world are investing in new technologies. The dynamic spread of knowledge throughout teams and employees is crucial. In the digital revolution, intelligent technologies open up opportunities for collaboration and communication at a new level. Using European and North American companies as an example, you will gain insight into the functioning and impact of artificial intelligence, combined with social collaboration and futuristic “smart jobs.”
