Date & Time

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Moscone South, Esplanade level, Auditorium 4


Digital technology is evolving rapidly, leading to the emergence of new services and applications that are transforming the way people live, work, play and communicate. A coherent and feasible digitization strategy is key to enabling three interrelated components required for digital societies to function effectively and deliver benefits to all sectors of society: digital citizenship, digital lifestyle and digital commerce. Do the benefits of becoming a digital first society outweigh the risk of excluding some? Do providers and technologists have an obligation to help those who are underserved? This session will deep dive into the pillar of digital lifestyle and explore its impact on privacy and security, healthcare, financial inclusion, education and development.
