The Economist’s inaugural Technology for Change Week Asia, a free to attend online event. Join us as we bring together 700+ leading policymakers, entrepreneurs and decision makers from major corporations, big tech, finance and NGOs. Together, we will explore the issues affecting over 5 billion citizens in Asia – the built environment, food security and access to education – and discuss how technology and data-driven solutions can ensure that no adult or child is left behind in an increasingly digital world.
The in-person event covers the use of the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and other “smart” technologies for making buildings and facilities more capable and greener.
