Agenda Released For Gen.T Stream, Featuring Wikipedia Founder Jimmy Wales
The global coronavirus pandemic is causing us to reassess everything: how we work, how we socialise, even how we eat.
It also presents a unique opportunity to pause and find new ways to tackle the world's biggest problems. If we get this moment right, we can emerge from the crisis with new solutions to make our world more just and more sustainable.
The upcoming edition of Gen.T Stream, a virtual conference from Gen.T, is focused on how we can turn these bold ambitions into reality. Taking place on October 23, the theme of the event is “Creating Social Impact in a Post-Covid World".
To discuss this topic, we'll be joined by two world-renowned technologists, both of whom advocate for the positive impact of technology on humanity. As the founder of Wikipedia, Jimmy Wales is a father figure of the Internet, using tech to democratise access to knowledge for the last two decades.
Our second speaker, data scientist and social researcher Christopher Wylie, is best known as the whistle-blower in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. We'll talk to both speakers about how we can harness the tools and resources at our disposal to build the future we want to see post-pandemic.
We’ll also be speaking to Dr James Gifford, Head of Impact Advisory, Credit Suisse to explore some of the key insights behind its recent report, Creating A World With The Next Generation.
