Technology and Society

The Asia-Pacific has seen massive developments in cyber-technology, internet governance and ICT infrastructure. 

China has come to play a leading role internationally on internet governance and, alongside countries including India and Japan, is developing its own telecoms infrastructure and hardware.

Mobile internet, advances in computing power and Big Data, artificial intelligence, automation, machine learning, robotics and nanotechnology are all driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

These trends will fundamentally change the future of work, communication, and connectivity across the Asia-Pacific.
