Detalles del evento
The world is changing at an accelerated rate. It used to take 20 years to create a billion dollar market and we're seeing that happen today in months. Internet and mobile technologies have driven an extraordinary pace of change in the last 15-20 years. However, that was just the beginning. We're now seeing breakthroughs happen in six or eight other fields like artificial intelligence, robotics, biotech, bioinformatics, nanotech, 3d printing, medicine and energy. In this workshop, we'll cover some of these breakthroughs and discuss the societal implications of them. We'll then have a workshop session where we'll consider how Mexico can leverage these breakthroughs to dramatically impact your organization in terms of business models, innovation, product development and more. The opportunity uniquely exists for Mexico to leverage new technology and leapfrog many other countries in the world.
