The Future Of Technology Tied With The Heart And Mind
Technology has never connected people more closely than right now. It has given us the opportunity to create and communicate in ways that it would seem like we were sitting right across the person we are interacting with. Even from the remotest locations, technology has made it possible to bring people together at the same time.
Tying the Heart & Mind
Dubai’s Expo 2020 is accentuating the nature of technology. Technology doesn’t need to be viewed as cold and distant, in fact it is quite the opposite. It ties our hearts and minds as we communicate with people whom we would not otherwise get to see or speak to. Technology has done wonders for the world, and it will continue to do so if used correctly and given the reverence it deserves.
The next generation like us must unlock further benefits that technology has to offer. It is crucial for all sectors in a country, whether private, public and non-profit to let innovation take control and fly. The 21st century is seeing fundamental transformations that are influencing the way the human race functions. While there are challenges that can come with technology, it is time to refocus its innovation and creation into making a fundamental difference towards a sustainable future.
So Far, Still to Go
We have so far only touched the surface of this great power in order to produce change. Technology is being used to make smart cities, urbanize populations and reduce pollution. Virtual reality and artificial intelligence are slowly taking its rightful place across a range of sectors and industries, particularly in the healthcare, education and engineering industries. The three main objectives of Expo 2020 namely, opportunity, mobility and sustainability aim to harness challenges that are faced by the world and derive carefully thought-out solutions.
Technology is shown to be beneficial across multiple disciplines. Young people are well-versed in technology and constantly connected to their devices. This generation of millennial can be empowered if a country applies its technological skills and knowledge appropriately and at the right time. It will nurture an economy that thrives and contributes to a sustainable future.
How Expo 2020 Will Embrace Technology?
The enormous potential of technology will be recognized at Expo 2020. It is with the intention to foster and bring together technology pioneers who want to share their goals with similar and like-minded partners. Expo 2020 will discuss how technology can be applied in the lives of young people and how it can be harnessed to face challenges. The Accenture Digital Connected Hackathon is an initiative at Dubai Expo 2020 that will aim to ignite innovation and empower the younger generation. Youth Connect will also feature inspirational talks at Expo 2020 to help young people discover new interests, develop new skills and unlock their Pandora box of potential and possibilities.
Ultimately, the legacy of Expo 2020 and technology is to create an inclusive society that embraces the benefits of technology over the challenges, and stay connected throughout the world.
