The annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, isn’t typically thought of as a tech conference. But technology has become one of the most prevalent themes at the globalist summit.
Tech is shaping the global economy today. This year, top executives from companies like Alphabet, Alibaba, IBM, Salesforce, and Uber joined leaders from around the world to drive that point home. Keynotes and panels covered everything from artificial intelligence, automation, and biotechnology to cryptocurrencies, cybersecurity, drones, and e-commerce.
The week-long forum features dozens upon dozens of panels and countless high-profile speakers, so we combed through the coverage and live-streamed sessions to round up the most important tech news and themes from WEF 2018.
