ABOUT JUBILAR INFOFEST
The Jubilee, 20th Anniversary Festival of Information Achievements – INFOFEST 2018 was held in the Budva Hotel “Avala Resort & Villas”, from September 30 to October 6. Also this year, the organizers of the Festival were the Ministry of Public Administration of Montenegro and the consultant company Biznis Link. The jubilee INFOFESTA slogan was “History of the Future” as an association on the role of the Festival in the development of information and communication technologies in our regions. The slogan was explained in more detail by INFOFESTA director in the catalog’s editorial:
“At first glance, this year’s Infofest slogan, or the title of this introduction, will come to you. Explained, the future is a term that signifies what is to happen, and history refers to what has already happened. So, with full logical right, we can say that the construction of “The History of the Future” is an unsustainable semantic paradox.
Where, then, is this irrelevance of an otherwise festive organizer of the Festival?
Progress, and even survival in the ambience of contemporary technological development, is increasingly dependent on the openness of our mind. “Open mind necessity,” I would say in English. The open mind is constantly questioning even undeniable axioms, and perhaps theoretically confirmed theories. Stereotypics to and not to mention. Only through chronic re-examination of “proven” and “confirmed” we can spread space for creation, invention, for new developmental penetration. If there was no such openness, it would be difficult for us today to have such mobile telephony, broadband network, Internet …
Such an approach gives us the right to question the interpretation of the notion of history and the notion of the future, as stated at the beginning of this text. There is also the right to speak of “the history of the future”, ignoring the notions of logical inconsistency.
In the previous Infofest for 25 years, many unmistakable stereotypes have been written, and “born” is what we did not expect. This quarter of a century confirmed that we were justified in all doubts, that we did not care, that we understood why it was important to strive for the future to be considered and, as far as possible, foreseeable. That’s why we were at Infofest, the first (at least in our region) talking about new computer architectures, the future of the Internet, email, broadband structures, the Cloud, the Internet-of Things concept, the … Time is confirmed that, in this way, at least a little has been written about the history of the future! With this interpretation of my own right, we need to understand the context in which we will talk about artificial intelligence, self-study this year … And, perhaps, ultimately futuristic, we must now ask – where will we talk about future teleporting to the future Infofest!
Looking at the future can not rest on the thrill of every new “invention” and its trivial application. We must not subvert our intellectual capacity just by anticipating the new announcements of large vendors. Great Aleksej Kišjuhas says, “Sometimes you should walk around the graveyard of once-live and glamorous technologies. If we have a fax, a bumper, a wax, a CD player … Because, just as it has disappeared or been extinguished over 90 percent of the living species that have ever lived on Earth, it is the same with technology. Trips are “living dinosaurs” like crocodiles. ”
Sounds immoral, but – to ask, do you think that we are at Infofest, all these years, trying to recognize just the “crocodiles”, to understand them and to pay attention to them. I do not know how much that quest was successful but we did not give up. And that is good, it is encouraging! What do you think?
Why, then, this jubilee Infofest would not be the “History of the Future”? If anyone thinks we have not written so far, let her go now. Jubilee is a real opportunity for it!
That is why I invite you to be together with the writers of the history of the future. ”
INFOFEST 2018 began with the opening ceremony of the Avale hotel terrace. Along with an appropriate artistic program, Montenegrin Public Administration Minister Suzana Pribilovic and High Official of the International Telecommunication Union Kemal Huseinovic addressed attendees. The Jubilee Festival was opened by the Vice-President of the Assembly of Montenegro Branimir Gvozdenović, one of the founders of the INFOFEST idea.
The Jubilee Festival congratulated all participants on Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic, a personal letter read at the opening ceremony.
