At the Crossroads of AI and Disruption
This year’s theme is Crossroads: Hype x Disruption, covers some of the major topics in today’s technology. Visiting entrepreneurs will explore what tech trends live above the hype, how they champion inclusiveness and equitable impact, and how to spot opportunity through the noise.
According to one of the entrepreneurs we visited this year, Chris Yehthe growing interest in artificial intelligence is the most influential change our society has undergone in the last two centuries.
“AI may be the most impactful technological wave since the industrial revolution,” Chris tells Startup Daily. “As a society, we will be more productive, have more jobs, and have better daily lives.”
While Chris warns of short-term disruptions such as the disappearance of certain jobs and investments, he is confident that our society is best positioned to deal with it.
“The timing for this year’s Visiting Entrepreneur Program is perfect,” says Chris. “The ongoing revolution is not only in AI, but also in the development of post-pandemic genomics and synthetic biotechnology.
“Now is the perfect time to learn about and embrace the future.”

This year’s program kicks off with an exciting launch event on Wednesday, June 21st. Technology We All Deserveis introduced by renowned technofuturist Garit Ariel and explores the impact of technology on our lives and future, followed by a Q&A session moderated by Holly Ransom.
“From artificial intelligence to quantum computing to real-time and immersive technologies, cycles and assumptions are accelerating, and we are experiencing emerging technologies ‘all at once, together,’” explained Garritt. To do.
This session will provide an opportunity to understand the unique opportunities, challenges and responsibilities presented by the current wave of innovative technology from one of the technology industry’s most innovative minds.
As technology permeates society at a rapid pace, this Canadian-based technofuturist takes a step back and re-examines how technology enriches or undermines our daily lives. I encourage everyone to do so.
“We are looking forward to having a diverse audience, not just technology developers, agencies and service providers, but also the public, users and curious people,” said Garritt. “They are the core of the industry and should actively participate in discussions and discussions about the future of technology.”
