Inside Davos 2016: Three Lessons from the World Economic Forum
February 8, 2016
The Fourth Industrial Revolution was the theme for discussions that took place between the world’s most influential economic, political, and industry players during the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos. The main stage presentations and resulting dialogue focused on the real implications of the effect that radical technological progress will have on our society. As one of 49 companies selected as this year’s World Economic Forum Technology Pioneers, 1QBit CEO Andrew Fursman participated in these conversations through presentations and panels focusing on how science will save us and the role Canada will play in developing innovative solutions. Singularity University shares Fursman’s insider perspective on the awareness world technology leaders have about disruptive technologies; the urgency of preparation to be able to handle disruptive change; and Canada’s booming role in technological innovation, a point of view bolstered by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s opening address to the delegation.
