FUTURE OF TECHNOLOGY: ISSUES FOR WASHINGTON AND THE WORLD
Local Leaders on Global Issues with Brad Smith,
President and Chief Legal Officer, Microsoft
We are at the dawn of an era of profound transformation. A new generation of technology innovation is delivering capabilities that promise to expand economic opportunity and address some of humanity’s most pressing problems. But cloud computing is creating disruption as well. People question the safety of their communities, the future of their jobs, and the prospects for their children. To ensure that technology benefits everyone in the world, and not just the fortunate few, will require new steps by tech companies, the non-profit community, and forward-looking government policies and laws.
Join Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith for a discussion on Microsoft’s vision of the need to create a cloud-based technology era that is trusted, responsible, and inclusive – a cloud for global good.
Moderated by Adriane Brown, COO, Intellectual Ventures.
