CONFERENCE THEMES

EmTech China is your opportunity to discover future trends and to understand the technologies that will drive the new global economy. It's where tech, business, and culture converge, and where you gain access to the most innovative people and companies in the world.
Innovation in the AI Era
From agriculture to energy, and from healthcare to manufacturing, technology is revolutionizing industries. Artificial Intelligence (AI), one of the new driving forces impacting every industry today, is poised to deliver fundamental changes across sectors. What will the impact be, what are the challenges, which industries will prosper and which will get left behind?
Computing the World
Shrinking transistors have powered 50 years of advances in computing—but now other ways must be found to make computers more capable. Technology companies are working hard to offer new use cases for computers, as the exponential growth of computing power advances. Traditional hardware and software manufacturers now blur the boundaries between their respective roles, as technologies like AI makes chip design more feasible, and quantum computing advances challenge the status quo.
Limited World, Unlimited Blockchain
The revolution in financial services is underway, changing how services are distributed, consumed, and priced, impacted by emerging technologies such as blockchain, AI, Cloud Computing and data analytics. Fintechs are succeeding as stand‐alone businesses, reshaping customer expectations, and setting higher bars for the user experience. Incumbents are adapting and are retaining many of their customers. How will Fintech innovation change the global economy?
The Future of Work
AI and robotics are driving rapid and radical workplace transformation across all industries, for companies large and small. These and other emerging technologies, like Cloud Computing, AI, advanced manufacturing, Internet-of-Things (IoT), are changing jobs and business models ranging from manufacturing to medicine to retail. Will these changes empower the human workforce and open up new areas of economic growth, and what are the unintended consequences?
∞ Space
The pursuit of autonomous flight and transportation technologies is reshaping the aerospace industry. New technologies such as AI, raise questions of human agency and safety challenges that augmenting human interventions in flight engender, while future-forward topics like interstellar travel, space labs, asteroid mining and more. Startups around the world are joining aerospace giants like SpaceX and Blue Origin in developing commercial rocket launches and data-sharing. Is the new space frontier today’s Gold Rush?
The Cornerstone of Future World: New Material & New Energy
Three cornerstones of our society: resources, materials and information are evolving together with the development of the society. What is waiting for us in such a time with speeding changes? Will the search for ideal energy turn to be a long march without an end?
Rewriting Life
The sheer volume of medical data available today, and the tools for analyzing this information is revolutionizing the field of biomedicine. Algorithms can predict the risk of certain common diseases and suggest drugs to ward them off, Cancer drugs can now be customized as the promise of personalized medicine unfolds. Advanced manufacturing techniques and new materials are moving the possibilities of bioprinting organs from the research lab to the surgical setting and advances in genomics hold both peril and possibility.
