How do we ensure humanity stays ahead of technology?
New technology, from alternative energy sources to digitization to artificial intelligence, is changing how we live, how we work, and how our businesses function. But what happens when those advances move so fast that we can’t keep up? And, if businesses and governments don’t understand the technologies, what happens to society? We talk with Azeem Azhar, entrepreneur, author, and founder of the future-focused podcast and newsletter Exponential View, about this “exponential age”—and the gaps it has created. These fast-moving technologies can also create opportunities for business. So, what do CEOs need to understand to be able to harness them? How do businesses use AI and other technologies responsibly, and what’s at risk if they don’t adapt to the pace of change? Annie Veillet, national data and advanced analytics lead partner with PwC Canada, weighs in on the risks and the upsides for business.
