The second edition of the Financial Inclusion Global Initiative (FIGI) Symposium will take place in Cairo, Egypt from 22-24 January 2019. The Symposium is organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), jointly with the World Bank Group and the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures, with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and is kindly hosted by the National Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (NTRA) of Egypt.
Every business in every industry must think and act like a technology company to compete in today’s global economy. Exponential technologies–including artificial intelligence, blockchain and quantum computing–coupled with political uncertainty, make leading a business today no easy feat and the stakes are high. Adding to that, backlash against the tech titans has overshadowed technology’s potential to create value by giving a dystopian future most of the spotlight.
The 2019 edition of the Innovation Summit will dive into the role of technology in shaping profit and progress, answering questions such as:
- Can companies ensure that they have longterm strategies despite the uncertainty, and can technology set them up for a positive and profitable growth?
- Which technologies are going to make the most impact to corporations’ bottom lines the soonest?
- Is the fear that the tech titans will use their power to protect and extend their own dominance to the detriment of consumers justified?
- How can policymakers restrain the giants without unduly stifling innovation? And what ought to be the role of the governments in curbing tech monopolies and propelling competition?
The debates and discussions at the summit will offer a robust geopolitical context while dissecting and analysing the trends that promise to follow Moore’s Law patterns of exponential growth.
Join The Economist editors, top thinkers, Fortune 500 leaders, policymakers, academics and disruptive entrepreneurs to share insights on how every company can leverage exponential technologies to shape progress, even during a time when technology’s getting a bad rap.
