President and CEO Antonio Neri will take the stage during the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos to discuss the future of computing

The unprecedented pace of technological change means that our systems of health, transportation, communication, production, distribution and energy – just to name a few – will be completely transformed. Managing that change will require new types of computing. The opportunities ahead are remarkable if we can harness technology effectively. And it's not just our systems that will change. New types of compute will enable us to look beyond enterprise objectives, to put technology to use for the good of society and help solve some of the world's most challenging problems.

During this year's World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, CEO and President Antonio Neri will join leaders from around the world in exploring how technological innovation can yield unparalleled transformations for businesses, governments, organizations and individuals during the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
