Don’t miss out on Mobilium Global’s Ralph Simon interview with the head of The Atlantic Council’s new Global Centre, Dr David Bray. It will take place at TEDx Gateway, India on 11 December 2020.

As the world’s largest democracy, India can lead from the world stage. Already, several CEOs around the world hail from India. In addition, the increasing availability and affordability of world-changing technologies now means that companies and individuals now have capabilities previously reserved only for what the national security functions of large nations could do during the historical Cold War. Such trends embody the GeoTech decade ahead – one where technologies and data transform nations and global geopolitics. India brings a lot of talent to these increasingly democratized technologies.


Why should you attend?

The trends present in the GeoTech Decade Ahead raise several questions both for India and the world. How do we uplift people, prosperity, and peace? How do we use these technologies without becoming a surveillance state? How do we ensure advances in tech and data bring together communities, uplift societies, and respect human rights and dignity? Join us as we discuss how India can step onto the world stage and be a leader in the GeoTech decade ahead for us all.
