What’s Next?: Technology & Social Changes Post-Pandemic

Experts predict that COVID-19 will change the way we live – some moderately, others dramatically. Many of those changes are intrinsically related to the use of technology and tech leadership. But what are those changes and how can we stay ahead? In this webinar, we will discuss the impact of the coronavirus in technology, markets, business, and culture. We will look at current events such as Zoom’s security issues, Apple & Google’s partnership on contact tracing, corporate responses and the paradigms of working from home. We will deep dive into growing technologies that were booming before the crisis such as AI and review potential shifts. Finally, we will discuss how to be prepared for the months ahead and predict the needs of consumers and companies with the growing demand for technology infrastructure and services.
