Exponential: How to Bridge the Gap Between Technology and Society, 2:00pm Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Technology is developing at an increasing, exponential rate.

But human society - from our businesses to our political institutions - can only ever adapt at a slower, incremental pace. The result is an 'exponential gap' - between the power of new technology and humans' ability to keep up. Azeem Azhar is the creator of Exponential View, Britain's leading platform for in-depth tech analysis, read by 200,000 people weekly from around the world. He is a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Futures Council, and a contributor to publications including the Financial Times, Prospect and the MIT Technology Review.
