4IRC Innovation - Tech doesn't innovate, people do

5.30pm - 7.45pm , 11 September, 2018


What is the source of innovation, people or technology?

Join the #4IRC Connect Shapers as we explore the role technology plays in our lives under the 4th Industrial Revolution.

  • Does technology limit or enhance human creativity?
  • Has technology allowed us to unlock human potential?
  • Are we born to innovate but taught to conform?

This debate aims to challenge perceptions and open conversations with academics, business and the start-up community.
