Tech must be the servant rather than the master

Technological innovation often starts with a promise of empowerment — plans to make the whole world’s information accessible (Google), to give people the power to build community (Facebook), to share ideas instantly (Twitter), or simply to enable them to do more (Microsoft).
However, as technology companies have grown, many people have a sense of disenfranchisement and powerlessness. Their data are collected and traded — often hacked — in ways that are difficult to monitor and control. Smart cities are covered in sensors but the information is not necessarily freely available. People fear that robots will take their livelihoods. Social media can be an arena for bullying rather than free speech.

Away from the bleak headlines, however, people and communities are still putting new technologies to use in solving social problems, holding authorities to account and overcoming injustice or inequality. Often these projects and innovations happen at grassroots level and on low budgets, practically invisible to the wider public.


Tech lines by Leaders:
Every piece of technology should help embellish the capability of human beings. We definitely want more productivity and efficiency, but we do not want to degrade humanity.

“The ability to really make sure that we’re not only thinking about the person, but the institutions people builds,”

“We think about it at the global scale, but most importantly, for us, it’s not about our technology, it is about what you can do with technology to create your own technology, to have real impact in moving our society and economy forward. That’s what is central to our mission,”

“In fact, technology trends and paradigms will come and go, but what will center us is this sense of purpose and mission?”

This is a time where the profound impact of technology in everything that people do is so much deeper, so much broader, whether one is talking about precision agriculture, or precision medicine, the future of connected products, smart cities or smarter factories.

“There isn’t a single industry that isn’t being transformed.

We collectively have the opportunity to lead in this transformation,”

Renowned Financial Analyst Dr. Anders Bally to speak in Mumbai at Financial Analytics Summit

07 Nov


ab   During his time as a financial analyst and fund manager in Zurich, Switzerland in the 90’s, Dr. Anders Bally had a vision to connect the world and democratize wisdom of the crowd. Like most innovators, he identified the key obstacles in how financial news was used and assimilated, and found a cutting-edge solution. 20 years later, having built a number of companies, Bally received the 2016 Swiss Fintech Award for bringing his vision to life with Sentifi.

Sentifi has become the most recognized name in crowd-based artificial intelligence for financial information in key markets including Europe and Asia. After seeing the emerging power of the financial market in India, Bally is honored to visit Mumbai, India, as the keynote speaker for UNICOM’s first Financial Analytics & Blockchain Summit on Nov. 10 and 11.

“The world we are living in is changing daily, even hourly,” said Bally. “Globally, there are 2.2 billion people connected to social media, sharing their knowledge, opinions and judgments.” In his keynote speech, dubbed “The Financial Information Paradigm Shift,” Bally will explain the transformation — from traditional media to social media — and how the financial community should address and access this information.

In the workshop “Integration of Crowd-Intelligence in Financial Analyses and Investment Decisions” later in the day, Bally will give an insider’s view on different ways to tap into crowd-intelligence and extracts unlimited information to turn into financial insights that can maximize investment strategies.

“It’s my first time in India, and a great honor to be the keynote speaker for UNICOM” said Bally. “I’m looking forward to introducing Sentifi to the country’s financial markets; as well as connecting everyone to the power of our crowd intelligence technology.”

Established in 2010 with headquarters in India and the U.K., UNICOM hosts a variety of events around the world including conferences, contests, webinars, public workshops, certified training courses and networking events. With this summit, UNICOM hopes to address and ignite conversations about the hottest topics and trends in the financial sector, including big data, market perspectives, blockchain, fraud and cybersecurity.
