The societal impacts of IoT are enormous, yet still relatively uncharted and generally regarded as externalities. While technological progress is certain to bring vast economic and societal benefit, we cannot ignore the potential unintended consequences of exponential digital transformation. Thinking beyond the financial bottom line, the bigger questions deal with ethic and human flourishing: What will be the impact of IoT on society and culture, jobs and the global workforce? What is our role as business and technology leaders in preparing the world and the workforce for the exponential challenges and opportunities speeding towards us? In this session, we explore the ethics of IoT and the critical role of human ingenuity in designing and shepherding its impact.

How should leaders think about the potential of 5G, LP-WAN, and other emerging technologies? What are the early trials, and when will full support emerge?

5:10–5:45 p.m. Securing Our Future: Managing Risk and Privacy in the Hyper-connected World
"What is our privacy worth? To marketers, your personal information, your likes and dislikes, and online behavior can mean profitable new revenue streams. To employers, keywords in your communications can tip them off to rogue insiders. And to governments, correlating whom you communicate with online, the web sites you visit, and your online searching and reading habits, may help identify potential criminal activity. And at the same time, strict personal privacy and data residency laws are being enacted in different parts of the world that will curtail who has access to an individual’s data. Can an IoT-adopting society stay safe, economically viable, and maintain individual privacy? Or has IoT adoption come at the cost of privacy?"
