9am PDT / noon EDT / 5pm BST / 6pm CEST
Duration: one hour
In the midst of the pandemic, the lockdowns, and social unrest, with work and education moving online, people are leaving the big cities. They are seeking new lives in second and third tier cities, and in rural areas. What will their lives be like and what impact will they have? Join Frode Odegard (Post-Lean Institute), Dr. Julie Albrecht (USC), and Dr. Jim Spohrer (IBM) and explore infrastructure needs for remote high-tech living, and what education, farming, manufacturing, and working from home will be like. They will also discuss opportunities for further innovation and investment.
