Opening Keynote:

Reinventing The Future of Finance
Imagine a world where the difference between man and machine blurs, where the difference between humanity and technology fades, where the soul and the silicon chip unite. What normal market forces will not do? That’s the question that Nicholas Negroponte kept in mind all along his career. As Nicholas Negroponte strongly believes that connectivity is a human right, his vision for the future is definitely social. Making good use of technology at an age in which the marriage of human sensitivity and artificial intelligence fundamentally alters the way we live.
Nicholas Negroponte, Founder of the MIT Media Lab, Inventor, Thinker and Angel Investor(Invited)
