CWIC: Track 1

Society & Community

Book now!

What does a hyperconnected society look like? We continue to interconnect people and in the last few years we have seen an accelerated appetite for video meetings, telemedicine, online retail and connected entertainment. How do we evolve from these successful but disparate services to a broad societal change, in which we all share a better citizen experience, better utilisation of asset capacity, better care and health services? How can we avoid leaving people behind? How do we provide for people who wish to remain unconnected?

We will consider how the technology curve can be harnessed for societal transformation, through ubiquitous services, pervasive standards, strong governance and robust privacy protection. We will examine the role of central and local government in redefining social norms and in promoting - and funding - universal hyperconnected services. We will also explore national visions, international references and the role of multinational cooperation.

Societal change is measured in generations and will be regulated by political and social appetite rather than Moore’s Law. But can we define an endpoint with a clear value proposition, which makes sense to the children of today? And what about the valuable data harvest we derive from being hyperconnected – How does this benefit society at large?


The CW Internatinal Conference will return on 2 November 2022.
