The exponential development of digital technologies is transforming society and business – creating new industries, new organizational models, new business models, and a new open culture where collaboration and sharing is the norm. At the same time that it offers great promise, it has the potential to destroy jobs on a very large scale, as the same forces of automation that have relieved humans of repetitive assembly work now advance toward making many of us unnecessary to service work and even knowledge work.
There is no obvious path through this digital wonderland – we must find our own ways individually and collectively. The future is open; all of us are called upon to enhance the good and mitigate the bad. Your essay will offer your personal insights and forward-looking perspectives on the challenge.
How do you envision your life as a knowledge worker/entrepreneur ten years from now?
How can the capabilities of this "digital wonderland" be leveraged for the benefit of society and individuals?
How can the destructive and dark side of digital technologies be tamed and neutralized? What impact of digital technology do you anticipate in your lifelong learning journey?
Where do you see the best opportunities to create a new Industrial Revolution with digital technologies across all sectors of the economy?
