Designing the Future: Strategy, Technology, and Society in the 4th Industrial Revolution

Rapidly evolving technologies such as AI, 5G, IOT, Fog, CV, AR/VR, and Cloud are redefining how people live, learn, heal, play, work, share, move, produce, and even reproduce. These technological innovations—euphemistically referred to as the 4th (Industrial) Revolution—are generating new opportunities and problems for start-ups, investors, small-medium businesses, multinational corporations, universities, cities, nation-states, and global networks. Such challenges present both practitioners and scholars with many strategic questions. This Special Conference draws on scholarship and practice at the intersection of strategy and technology and also places design at its core.
