Abstract:

In this panel we seek to understand how advances in technology helped us overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, we will explore how artificial intelligence, data, security, ethics play a role to help us live better life as we keep pushing forward into the 21st century. What is not obvious, will the American Dream that our parents and grandparents enjoyed be there for the next generation? How does this dream change for the current generation? In addition, we will explore the role humans play towards the fifth industrial revolution and how climate change will impact energy-water-food security, the basic necessities for living? A panel of academic leaders, scientists and visionaries are invited to help us address these questions and provide some insights into the future.
