Much of the debate around technology and innovation ends up polarized. The oblivious optimist: technology is our savior. The anxious pessimist: robots will take over the world. The truth of the matter is this: technology itself is not going to save us, and technology itself is not going to ruin us. Hear from experts across industry as they help us answer: how do we put pressure in the right places to ensure that technological advancement serves each and every one of us?

Conversations will explore:

  • the future of work
  • smart cities
  • privacy
  • artificial intelligence
  • revolutionary treatments
  • impact investing
