Since this is a heavily technology focused major, I decided to share my view on what I believe are the Industries of the Future and how there are 10 emerging technologies that will drive the Next Economy.
The talk was called Next Economy: The Industries of The Future .
Blockchain is one of ten key technologies that will drive the Next Economy, and there isn’t a day that goes by where a new advance is made in its application towards something interesting in banking, government, insurance, transportation as well as other domains.
