HCL showcases technologies that make societal changes at Davos

Tech firm HCL Technologies will host a three-day event in a special Pavilion, at the World Economic Forum. The pavilion will showcase emerging technologies that are capable of bringing about societal changes, thought-leadership programmes and it will also feature high-level networking and social events during conference (WEF) between January 21st and 25th.

The overarching theme of the HCL and Fast Company programs will explore how humanity’s relationship with technology will evolve through the next decade of rapid innovation.

HCLhas partnered with Fast Company to develop a thought-leadership track that includes three panel discussion breakfasts. As part of the theme of Human-Machine Harmony, HCL is launching the HCL 2030 Platform, together with its ecosystem of partners and stakeholders, that will conduct in-depth explorations and discussions with leading innovators and future leaders driving change across digital technologies, disruption in banking and financial services, the human capital equation, and the future of product innovation. Fast Company will leverage the HCL Pavilion to host expert panels, conduct in-depth interviews, and share compelling stories focused on global innovation and solutions.

The HCL Pavillion will also include a Tech Showcase Zone, representing transformational examples of how technology -- such as AI, Automation, Machine Vision, and Brain Computing -- has impacted human lives. HCL will use the Pavilion as a location for nightly special events, including celebrations of technology enabling diversity, technology’s transformational role in sports, and global philanthropy.

 “HCL has been a Strategic Partner of the World Economic Forum for over a decade, and we have been working very closely with the Forum to contribute and collaborate on the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing society and the global economy today. Hosting a series of dialogues around the Annual Meeting is a very exciting new step we are taking on this journey,” said C Vijayakumar, President & CEO, HCL Technologies.

“Going forward, we believe that the Fourth Industrial Revolution will need the interface of technology to solve some of the world’s hardest problems, and, having worked closely on ways to close this gap in the human / technology equation, we welcome this opportunity to showcase our efforts among the world’s leading minds gathering at Davos this year,’’ he added.
