2022 Technology-Enabled Disruption Conference

October 3 @ 9:00 am October 4 @ 1:00 pm EDT

2022 Technology-Enabled Disruption Conference Lessons from the Pandemic and the Path Ahead

The Technology-Enabled Disruption conference (TED), now in its fourth year, is designed to provide a better understanding of technology-enabled disruption and explore the phenomenon’s implications for the broader economy—for households and businesses. A consistent focus is on the themes of how technology-enabled disruption matters for US macro performance, worker and consumer impact, and relatedly, inclusion.

Conference details

The focus for TED 2022 will be on technology-enabled disruption during the pandemic for households and businesses, and the path ahead, along four dimensions.

Supply chains
We’ve all become aware of the unprecedented challenge to supply chains—previously adapted to a more stable world, and now drastically strained. What adjustments and long-term investments will firms make in the wake of supply chain disruptions so that their business operations become more resilient and reliable?

Education
Previously contact-intensive educational services were simply disabled initially and later challenged. How has this sector adapted and what major challenges remain for the education industry?

Labor market dynamics
Perhaps most often discussed, the pivot to remote work for many jobs has dramatically shifted the workplace. As we exit the pandemic, what can we expect for the dynamics of the labor market and how has it shifted economic opportunities among various segments?

Digital payments
The move to vastly greater numbers of remote transactions during the pandemic accelerated the shift from cash to digital payments, all at a time of great change in what technology allows by way of decentralized, anonymized, platforms; and where central banks worldwide consider offering their own digital currencies. How has the FinTech industry adapted and grown in the wake of the pandemic? What progress was made during the disruption to make digital payments as inclusive as cash? What are the implications of the shift to digital payments for consumer credit?
