Microsoft

Microsoft’s Brad Smith believes that when your technology changes the world, you bear a responsibility to help address the world you played a part in creating. Tech companies and governments must work together to address the challenges and adapt to the changes technology has unleashed. And governments will need to regulate technology by moving faster and catching up with the pace of innovation that is impacting our communities and changing the world. Don’t miss this provocative, compelling conversation that addresses some of the thorniest issues faced by industry and society today. How can the hopes technology offers be protected against the very real threats it also presents?
