A Nordic Perspective to Digitization
Technology is everywhere in our society. How we work, live and relate to each other are changing. What kind of future are we creating and what kind of future do we want to create? In the US, the model seems to be ‘data for profit’ while in China is more ‘data for control’. Neither seems attractive or sustainable in a European context. We need a third way – a model where tech is supporting the core values of the Nordic countries. We might not be the ones who develop new technology, but we are leading in implementing it. In his presentation, Anders will introduce the need for a third model and how value-based innovation or sustainable disruption can be leveraged to guide us.
