On this episode of The Sustainability Report Podcast, we’re talking about how technology is changing how our economy operates and what disruption means both socially and economically.
Innovation in renewable energy, battery storage and other areas have brought the means to transition our world to a low-carbon future within our grasp, but disruption is a two-sided coin, and companies and stakeholders must think about how their products and processes will shape how we interact.
We’re talking with Dr Katina Michael, a professor at the University of Wollongong in the School of Information Systems and Technology in Australia. Katina has previously been employed as a senior network engineer at Nortel Networks (’96-‘01) and has also worked as a systems analyst at Andersen Consulting and OTIS Elevator Company. Katina addresses the value of privacy, the impacts of artificial intelligence, and how investors and companies could frame the discussion of long term values and ethics.
