Opening Panel: Challenges for Building a Prosperous Digital Society

Friday, December 11 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Digitalization, driven by the fourth industrial revolution based on semiconductor technology, is remaking everything around us to create a more efficient, convenient and prosperous society. However, as the saying goes, "data is the new oil," and there is a danger that the wealth will be concentrated in the hands of those who have the power to manipulate it, companies and nations. How to encourage the fair and healthy development of the digital society of the future is presented as a serious challenge for the world.
