Rounding off our TechQuake series tackling the high-impact technologies shaking up business and society, our two-part discussion explores the development of a host of emerging tools and platforms in a period in which such advances have often dominated the headlines. Joining forces with our Emerging Technology Group, the discussion looks back on the developments in The Metaverse, Crypto Assets and AI since the series launched a year ago, as well as considering likely future developments in these fast-moving – and often controversial – fields.

Episode 1 – The Metaverse and Crypto Assets

Alex Cravero, regional head of our Emerging Technology Group, joins digital marketing head Alex Novarese and senior executive Tom Baker to discuss two of the most hotly-discussed fields in the digital sphere, The Metaverse and Crypto Assets. The discussion explores the passionate debate that surrounds two fields that have suffered their share of high-profile setbacks over the last 12 months. Will regulation and advancing technology push these concepts into the mainstream or will they remain forever solutions searching for a problem?



Episode 2 – Artificial Intelligence

In the second part of our TechQuake discussion, Emerging Technology Group co-head Alex Cravero discusses the hottest topic in cutting edge tech: artificial intelligence (AI). Driven by audacious breakthroughs in generative AI such as ChatGPT, triggering an investment boom and anxious debates over social impacts and the potential for fake news, the technology has captured popular imagination. Looking at key industry developments and the emerging regulatory picture, we ask if AI can possibly live up to the hype.
