The Web Summit was a blast,
with 4 days packed with talks, networking, workshops, roundtables and night summits to redefine the global tech industry.
Here’s my rundown of the 4 key takeaways from Web Summit in Lisbon:
- Edward @Snowden warns about data collection, surveillance: “The most powerful institutions in society have become the least accountable“
- “The world represented by your data is the only world you can succeed“ states Cassie Kozyrkov, Chief Decision Scientist Google Developers, about using data for decision making
- Microsoft Design’s President @Brad Smith predicts: AI will be as transformative to society as the combustion engine over the next 3 decades
- Amazon will “go out of business in 10 to 15 years“ if it stops innovating says CTO Werner Vogels from Amazon
I would also like to give a shoutout to all of the who’s who of CXOs and founders who I have met — Thank you!
