Deploying Technology to Create Jobs, Not Destroy Them
As we enter the fourth Industrial Revolution, millions of jobs are at risk due to automation gains from artificial intelligence and robots. But opportunities are emerging to develop technology that will enable the creation of new jobs, combat climate change, and empower global entrepreneurialism.

Workforce Development, Training, and Education
Success in today’s economy has been made possible by highly skilled workers. With the exponential rise in the advancement of technology, companies’ ability to educate, retrain, and reskill their workers has become a critical competitive advantage, while also yielding higher wages and social mobility. A shortfall in government support has increased pressure on companies to bolster their learning and development functions, forcing them to increasingly align with business strategies. This discussion will highlight practices to prepare a workforce to adapt and perform in an ever-changing landscape of technology and work environments.

Harnessing the Digital Health Revolution to Help Billions
Health challenges in the developing world are well known, with many linked inextricably to poverty and a lack of basic medical care and infrastructure. Even in the 21st century, life expectancies in some developing nations are 40% shorter than those in industrialized countries. But the two worlds have more in common than meets the eye. Indeed, in the U.S., local and regional differences in population health status are so dramatic that life expectancies differ by as much as 20 years, depending on the zip code. That said, corporations and entrepreneurs are putting to work innovative approaches and technologies that can vastly improve and democratize care—across the globe. We probe what companies can do to lift the state of health everywhere, and ask what age-old paradigms we need to rethink.
