It all started with Paddy Cosgrave talking about his passion for Portugal, making the Web Summit ten more years in the Portuguese capital. Irish Executive Director thanked volunteers from more than 60 countries and 1000 speakers in the upcoming days, so even as usual, he asked that 15,000 at the beginning of the Web Summit Summit would meet with three people on Monday.
The first speaker was Tim Berners-Lee. The World Wide Web (WWW) inventor wants citizens, governments, and businesses to work together to create a more free Internet and start a contract in the direction called For The Web.
"We need to improve half the world and improve the second half." Ironically, Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of World Wide Web, has submitted his new initiative: a nine-point agreement aimed at protecting and improving the Internet as people know.
Apple CEO Lisa Jackson recalled that "leaders should know that there is no clash between healthy planets and healthy targets" and that Apple already uses clean energy in all offices. It also showed that the new MacBook Air brand was made of 100 percent recycled aluminum.
Film director Darren Aronofsky talked about new ways of telling stories in virtual reality. António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, admitted he was concerned about the automation of weapons with artificial intelligence.
Finally, António Costa recalled that the maritime adventure of Portugal was to celebrate next year 500 years of the first round trip to the ground made by Fernão Magalhães.
Fernando Medina, the mayor of Lisbon, offered a picture of Fernão de Magalhãesa Paddy Cosgrave moments before the countdown to the start of the event.
This Tuesday is full of events and conferences, and Tim Berners-Lee has returned as a speaker and with the participation of European Commissioner Carlos Moedas among many others. We'll be careful.
