Brad Smith, President, Microsoft
Interviewer to be announced
Tech companies have moved fast to manifest the great promise of digital transformation, chasing rapid growth & sometimes disruption as an end in itself. The world has turned information technology into both a powerful tool & a formidable weapon, & today we are at an inflection point. Enormous challenges such as privacy, cybercrime & cyberwar, social media, the moral conundrums of AI, big tech's relationship to inequality, & effects on democracy, come with no existing playbook.
Microsoft's Brad Smith believes that when your technology changes the world, you bear a responsibility to help address the world you played a part in creating. Tech companies & governments must work together to address the challenges & adapt to the changes technology has unleashed. And governments will need to regulate technology by moving faster & catching up with the pace of innovation that is impacting our communities & changing the world.
Don't miss this provocative, compelling conversation that addresses some of the thorniest issues faced by industry & society today. How can the hopes technology offers be protected against the very real threats it also presents? Each attendee will receive a complimentary first edition of Smith's new book, Tools & Weapons: The Promise & Peril of the Digital Age.
