New Frontiers: Change and Resilience
The COVID-19 pandemic claimed millions of lives and wrought havoc on the global economy—but it failed to halt the advance of technology. Indeed, in a host of critical fields, the pandemic contributed to a sharp acceleration in technological progress as business and government leaders the world over scrambled to innovate, adapt and devise new solutions for coping with the virus and its attendant challenges.
The Fortune Global Technology Forum, to be held in Guangzhou, China on March 30-31st, will convene senior business executives, top policymakers, and researchers and academic experts from around the world to discuss those solutions and explore the myriad ways in which new technologies are shaping the post-pandemic era.
The program, which will feature a variety of different panels, and one-on-one conversations, concurrent discussions between Fortune editors and global technology leaders, will examine recent breakthroughs in technologies and consider lessons learned during the pandemic as well as the technology history for grappling with the next global crisis.
The forum will assess the degree to which digital technologies that emerged during the pandemic have spawned lasting changes in the way we work, travel, shop, and learn. Panel discussions will highlight the role of technology in combatting climate change, reducing inequality, and promoting economic development.
Speakers will share their insights on cutting-edge technologies in key areas including artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, quantum computing, and controlled fusion. The forum, the first major global business conference to be held in China since the mainland reopened to foreign travelers, offers a unique opportunity for attendees to learn, share ideas and establish valuable personal relationships that can drive their businesses forward.
