In so many areas, COVID has accelerated trends that have been underway for some time. As we adapt to new forms of interacting in our day to day lives – everything from how we work and how we learn to how we connect with each other - we are increasingly reliant on access to innovative technologies. Indeed, the pandemic has underscored just how important it is to be included in the digital economy – to connect with your colleagues, to get support from your government, to allow your small business to survive, to simply live and interact every day.
So, how do we ensure that the innovative technologies that make all this possible? Right now, about one in five people worldwide don’t have access to basic financial services. That makes it difficult for them to start new businesses, build up savings or send money to family. We need make sure that the accelerated shift to digital payments creates a digital bridge, not bolster a divide. In this session, Mike Froman will address building an inclusive, sustainable digital economy with a focus on innovation, insights and trusted partnerships that ensure people can reach their potential, economic growth is inclusive and the planet can thrive.
Technology has the potential to transform our urban areas into smart, sustainable and equitable spaces that enhance the lives of their growing populations.

AI projects are often expensive, risky, and complex, with many failing to achieve a sustainable impact.

This panel will gather a range of experts to discuss how algorithmic decision-making systems can be used in a safe, sustainable and ethical way.
We have been discussing consumer behavior shifting to online for a long time, but nothing prepared us for the almost overnight shift that took place due to the pandemic. Now that everyone is online, the solutions and services needed to replicate and improve on familiar offline experiences need to match customer expectations, as well as elevate that experience with tools that can empower consumers and merchants alike. The future is a seamless experience that caters to users’ needs and wants in the right medium and at the right time.
The future of sustainable farming is here. Controlled-environment agriculture (CEA)is set to serve the underserved billions who have historically heavily relied on imports from other markets for 70%+ of their food needs. With fast-growing populations, growing middle classes, and climate change threatening traditional food production methods, the import-dependent, climate-challenged countries are exposed to potential future food shortages. CEA has a role to deliver these nations true and tangible food security, to conserve fresh water, to diversify their economies (often natural resource-driven wealth engines), and to offer more sustainable, higher-quality, safer, and tastier fruits and vegetables.
