The Digital Economy

What is the next big transformation of the industrial internet? How will the internet of things and the use of data transform our industries worldwide? How do we make a digital trade ecosystem work in an efficient and fair way? What are the biggest challenges? And how does a digital ID programme - such as the one India is undertaking - work, what are the opportunities it creates and what are the risks that come with it?


In this week’s episode of “A Glimpse into the Future”, we talk to three members of the World Economic Forum’s Council on the Future of the Digital Economy and Society:

- Arun Sukumar, Head of the Cyber Initiative at the Observer Research Foundation
- Marietje Schaake, Member of the European Parliament
- Dr Richard Soley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Object Management Group, and Executive Director of the Industrial Internet Consortium
