Connectivity

Address the power of technology to remove barriers and create space for new, impactful innovations and connections between individuals, companies and institutions.

Connectivity
Metaverse
Meaningful metaverse: transforming experiences and impactful innovation in the immersive economy

Experiences and entrepreneurship in the metaverse stand to transform how we connect, engage, and build value in the digital economy. However, questions remain on how we deliver opportunities beyond entertainment, storytelling, commerce, and communications.

Further, as our development and understanding of the metaverse grows, how do leverage technology to safeguard and optimize access to immersive digital economies?

Relevant to:
Gaming, Streaming, Entertainment, Commerce, Healthcare, Finance

Connectivity
Internet of Behaviors
Ethical innovation: balancing growth with privacy on the Internet of Behaviors

As the power, influence and penetration of technology companies and governments grow, we must be clear about the limits and responsibilities of tech stakeholders on privacy, regulation, and growth.

Acknowledgement of the pressures to regulate technology markets, alongside recognition of lessons learned, will be critical to maximizing the positive benefits of greater connectivity in our collective future.

Relevant to:

Connectivity
Cybersecurity
Tackling vulnerability: will we ever truly deliver cybersecurity?

As our reliance on digital infrastructure grows, it's critical to ask whether our expectations as consumers, regulators and corporations are realistic against an ever-evolving cyber threat environment. Further still, we must judge the extent to which data can indeed be protected both now and in the digital future.

More importantly, in a world of increasing cyberattacks, we must pause to reflect on what we can do more to secure the preparedness of our digital economies, especially as we herald a new dawn for quantum computing.

Relevant to:

Decentralization

Explore how innovation is opening centralized or monopolized markets by rethinking accessibility and ownership models for a digital and customer-centric future.

Decentralization
Web3 & Blockchain
Beyond blockchain: proving practical applications for Web3 in industry

Blockchain technologies will transform and retool the centralized architecture of our increasingly digitalized economy. However, what does this mean in practice for established industries beyond the hype-cycle of Web3 and tech evangelists? 

On a practical level, we need to explore the value of blockchain in optimizing critical B2B processes today. Further still, we must also debate the responsibility for the sustainability and utility of decentralized technologies in an ever more connected world.

Finance, Commerce / Payments, Supply Chains

Decentralization
NFTs & Cryptocurrency
Challenging neutrality: how is the NFT gold-rush upending ideas of ownership in the digital economy?

Beyond blockchain, cryptocurrencies and NFTs challenge our traditional notions of ownership and neutrality on the internet.

As investment surges, we must now explore how we embed responsible practices, opportunity, entrepreneurship, and inclusion in these new digital economies and protect against the emergence of new internet monopolies.

Relevant to:
Finance, Commerce, Metaverse, Entertainment

Decentralization
Open-Source Innovation
Democratizing data: how can we supercharge impact with open-source innovation?

Access to game-changing information technology through open-source platforms enables socially impactful innovation that might otherwise be impossible.

Further, open-source platforms are transforming our ability to solve problems, collaborate and process data on scales never seen before, particularly in the sciences of healthcare and astrophysics. So, where do we go from here, and what discoveries and innovations might we unlock?

Relevant to:
Space, IT, 3D Printing, Healthcare, Enterprise SaaS, Physics, Future of Work, Telecoms

Sustainability

Transform your strategic and technical approaches to decarbonization, climate accounting, resource optimization and transparency to deliver a safer, healthier and more sustainable future for all.

Sustainability
ESG Reporting
Acting on ESG: how do we ensure transparency and authenticity?

Meeting expectations on ESG requires proactive reporting and commitments to transparency. Still, questions remain over whether the tools we need are available or deployed effectively.

Join us to identify the early leaders on ESG authenticity, debate best practices on proving long-term accountability, and explore how stakeholders' pressure is forcing a rethink on the urgency of tackling Scope 3 emissions.

Relevant to:
Finance, Energy, Supply Chains, FMCG, Digital, Healthcare, Clean Energy

Sustainability
Decarbonization & Energy
Accelerating net-zero: how do we leverage technology to decarbonize further and faster?

Urgent decarbonization of industries is essential to meeting our global climate goals, either via optimizing efficiency in carbon reliant markets, embracing cleaner technologies, or even the wholesale capture and sequestration of pollutants.

Now is the time to inject greater resolve, finance, and support to rebuild our carbon-dependent economies and secure a clean, regenerative, and climate-smart future for all.

Relevant to:
Carbon Sequestration, Clean Energy, Circular Economies, Regeneration, Energy, Manufacturing, Finance, ESG

Sustainability
Electrification & Mobility
Futureproofed mobility: can electrons secure a climate-resilient and prosperous future?

How quickly and reliably we electrify mobility will be critical to delivering a decarbonized, climate-resilient and more equitable future for all. However, it's vital to ask what more we can do to develop, scale and fund the development of the technologies we need?

Moreover, what nascent innovations could transform carbon-intensive mobility in aviation, supply chains and manufacturing?

Relevant to:
Energy, Mobility, Aviation, Supply Chains, Cities/Built Environment, ESG

The swift growth of customer-centric FinTech innovation is supercharging innovative approaches to financial accessibility and inclusivity in critical technology markets. Still, we can do more to ensure that economic development and new financial services benefit the many and not the few.

Further, we must understand the role of finance in tackling the digital gap between the world's richest and poorest citizens, accelerating innovation, and encouraging entrepreneurship the world over.

Relevant to:
FinTech, Banking, Development, Web Services, Commerce, IT

Empowerment
Social Justice
Technology for justice: can technology empower a socially just and responsible future?

We have a responsibility to ensure that innovation improves the lives of all, and not just the privileged few. What's more, by closing the digital gaps, we can provide restorative equity to marginalized communities.

Amplifying truth: can we rebuild trust and accountability in civic society?

Technological innovation has enabled the unprecedented empowerment of individual voices in our civic society.

Yet, concerns linger about our ability to legitimize or amplify extreme and dangerous ideologies for all the benefits. Furthermore, we must recognize the risks of systematic disinformation.

We must work harder to understand and balance the role of technology in empowering liberties. Furthermore, we must endeavor to leverage technology to rebuild trust and accountability in the media and civic institutions the world over.
