I’m a firm believer that technological innovation is the biggest contributor of where we are now. We are moving very quickly toward an intelligence-era, where technology will play an even greater role and will be integrated more than ever into business decisions. We must use this power wisely, weighing up all potential risks, as well as being cognizant of ethics and the negative impact of disruption.
