    Talk
    Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    The world is in the middle of its fourth industrial revolution, which has brought a rush of innovation that has pushed our society towards its full potential. But with that comes ethical and potentially dangerous drawbacks. Explore how thought leaders grapple with the benefits and risks that tech could have for humanity, and what that means for current and future generations.
