Adjusting to the Tech Revolution: Surfing the Wave or Swept Away?

View Slide Presentation

The world's torrent of innovation continues to revolutionize life in ways that both expand and shrink economic opportunity. Things that were unknown just a few years ago - flappy-bird games and apps and Netflix downloads, 3D printing and driverless cars - open new avenues for making money. The downside shows up in technologies and businesses that once looked invulnerable: faxes, pagers, the compact disc, factory production and much of its workforce, not to mention the print side of news. Our panelists examine how industries and consumers are dealing with the revolution as it snowballs through all aspects of society, from our personal lives to business and banking, health, education, transportation and communication. They will consider the costs and advantages of the changes that tech is delivering, today and tomorrow.
