Davos is a hotbed of new technology and discussions on the future of tech
It may surprise you to know that Davos is, increasingly, a place for showcasing new technology. Yesterday an established tech company put on a panel of start ups and academics to discuss the future of tech. The highlight was their presentation of an autonomous digital avatar called Rachel who was able to express human emotions and engage in a real time conversation. The audience was also captivated by a video presentation of an autonomous human carrying drone that has no centralised control and runs on blockchain technology making it far less susceptible to hacking and interference.
The key takeaway was that tech companies need to work closer with governments and regulators in order that they embrace these technological advances so that such innovations come to the market place sooner than currently planned, and with appropriate regulatory frameworks in place.
