Keynote: Humanizing Technology

The 21st century technology advances are reshaping humanity and society both profoundly and rapidly. Although technology has been a part of human civilization right from the start, its influence today is pervasive and unprecedented, affecting all aspects of human existence. Hence, it is important to critically appraise and examine the impact of technology on society and on the human condition in the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0 age.

Professor Subra Suresh, President, NTU Singapore
