The first Next 100 Symposium in 2018 marked the end of World War I. In the aftermath of the war, the foundations for a multilateral world order were laid out. Today, those foundations are being challenged by a world overwhelmed with digital and information stimulation.
The brightest minds from the technological and social scientific fields must come together to translate current global tensions into transformative opportunities. The Next 100 Symposium aims to provide a groundbreaking international platform to achieve this goal of linking technological progress with social and political advancement.
bring together the most progressive minds in the technological and computing fields with influential social scientists and thinkers to discuss rising challenges to the global order;
