Description

The theme this year is: “Mind the Gap: Surviving (and Thriving) in the Age of Disruption”.

The rate of change brought on by new and disruptive technologies is increasing dramatically, faster than our social or legal systems can keep up. As this disconnect grows, our traditional system of governing and managing new technologies is at risk of becoming a mere afterthought. Meanwhile, the technologies that are now being rapidly developed and sent into market are creating privacy, security, and ethical questions that demand quick answers. There is a growing call for a more responsible code of conduct to oversee technology development, as well as improved digital literacy among both the young and old.

How do we build that into our existing way of life? Is there a way to speed up the development of the rules and patents that govern innovation? Which groups are already ahead of the curve? And how can we get everyone on the same level?

Cyber Summit 2018 will explore these important questions, and remind attendees to think twice before jumping onto the next technology trend.
