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. The stakes are high. How can companies ensure that they emerge with long-term strategies to harness technology for positive and profitable growth?

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.
