Global Conference 2019

Advances in technology and the sea of data have changed the way we live, work, and conduct business. The magnitude of technological change has impacted most, if not all, industries. What can companies and policymakers do to ensure the workforce is prepared for the future? And in the age of digital transformation, where should any company—be it a start-up or a Forbes 500 veteran—be focusing its resources? In this session, CEOs who are driving the AI and data revolution will discuss the adaptive responses to these changes, as well as policies that encourage and support worker education and training for industries of the future.
