Most people perceive the digital age as simply the accumulation of sleeker and more powerful gadgets. But our understanding of the digital age is narrow, because we are still in its infancy. The explosion of digitized data, which grows by orders of magnitude every year, has unleashed forces that will upend our world in the realms of economics, health, travel and culture. In his keynote address, DuBravac will discuss trends in the consumer technology industry and explore how digital data will solve many of mankind's most ancient problems, create new challenges and transform life as we know it.
