Title Digital Disruption – Stories from the Brave New World
Abstract

The past couple of hundred years have been an interesting era for the human race which have been highlighted by periodic technological revolutions. Steam engine, iron and textiles spurred the first industrial revolution. The second industrial revolution centered around steel, petroleum, chemicals and electricity. We are living the third industrial revolution now, also known as the digital revolution, which is governed by bits and bytes, connected devices, communication, E-Commerce, AI/ML, IOT, robots, digital economies and smart manufacturing. Industries and business models are undergoing transformation and our lives are being changed at an unprecedented rate. In this talk, we will discuss different aspects of this digital revolution and how it has disrupted our lives. From Diginomics to spending patterns of consumers in the digital world, from social networking and how it impacts a single user’s life to how its manipulation can swing entire public opinions, from changing business models to changing national agendas, from the marvels of technology to its perils and pitfalls, from how old ways are giving way to the new – we will use stories, numbers and statistics to get a glimpse of the digital disruption that we see around us everyday and visualize what the future holds for us.
