Convergence of Technology and the Future of Innovation
About the talk
With the world going through a tremendously shared experience in tackling the current pandemic, a faster acceleration towards tech convergence is the need of the hour. Sustainability, Equity, Transparency, Collaboration, and Decentralisation are the key pillars of driving tech convergence towards a human-centred digital economy. The best and most secure jobs are the ones you create for yourself because no one can replace you, as they have your unique traits and characteristics. Gender inequality needs to be tackled on priority. India has the opportunity to engage with global and local audiences, so it can create local impact and showcase it to the world for which we can use the tools around storytelling and online/offline communities.
