Sooner Than You Think New York


Big Tech at the Crossroads

On October 29 and 30, Bloomberg’s global technology conference, Sooner Than You Think, returns to New York for provocative discussions on technology’s ever-evolving and critical role in our lives, our businesses and society at large. Our theme this year: Big Tech at the Crossroads.

Technology companies collect infinite amounts of consumer data every day. These data points can be harnessed to create solutions to improve our way of life – or, in the wrong hands, can be leveraged to harm consumers and businesses, destabilize the democratic process and exacerbate social, racial and economic divisions. Consumer concern about protecting one’s digital DNA has prompted an ever more urgent discussion about the widening gap in expectations versus the realities of data privacy and protection.

Sooner Than You Think will convene leaders on the front lines grappling with these issues and taking action to move forward the technology industry.
