Managing disruptive technological change has become a central global challenge of the 21st century. Rapid technological change is transforming the way people live and work, and how societies function. The impacts of new technologies (e.g. artificial intelligence, robotics, digital platforms, and social media) are felt widely in business and society: companies need to innovate and adapt at an accelerating pace if they are to stay ahead in the global competition; governments need to address new public policy challenges and redesign regulatory frameworks; and individuals and societies need to deal with novel ethical dilemmas.
