The meeting being held at the Madinat Jumeirah Convention Centre in Dubai, from November 11-12, 2017, will help prepare countries, businesses and people for the technological disruption that will be brought about by the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The WEF’s annual meeting will bring together more than 600 members of the Forum’s Global Future Councils – a network of 35 distinct councils each focused on a specific issue, industry or technology – to develop new and original ideas to positively shape the future in a time of rapid technological change.

In addition, Council members will have the opportunity to meet with representatives and partners of the Forum’s new Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, to explore how particular technologies can bring new economic and societal benefits.

These include artificial intelligence and machine learning, autonomous vehicles, blockchain, drones, digital trade, the Internet of Things and precision medicine.

These ideas and solutions will be taken forward for further discussion at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2018 in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, in January.
