Every January, The World Economic Forum holds its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The goal is to improve the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas. As part of our “Davos Talks, 2020 ” series, Jeffrey Saviano is bringing us 6 episodes from and inspired by his time in Davos.
As new technologies become widely adopted, they’re still controlled by small - and often, biased - groups of stakeholders. In this episode, Jeff talks with Dante Disparte, head of policy at the Libra Foundation, who wants to turn that model on its head.
Dante has spent much of his career improving institutional risk, readiness, and resilience. In his leadership role at the Libra Foundation, Dante promotes an open infrastructure of collaborative fintech platforms to bring more people into the formal economy. This collaboration - the best of the public and private sectors, and civil society - calls for uncommon coalitions to democratize the power of emerging technologies, such as blockchain and artificial intelligence.
Join Jeff and Dante as they explore how this ecosystem approach to technology development and governance can fundamentally change the way that emerging technology shapes our world.
