About the talk:

This talk uses China, a highly populated and rapidly growing country as a case, to illustrate how smart technologies (Wechat, Alibaba, big data, logistics, e-services, etc.) are changing our lives and the future of our planet. It makes us rethink the relationship between modern technologies and our life. And how this particular relationship is going to determine our future?
