Event summary produced by The Globe and Mail Events team. The Globe’s editorial department was not involved.

New and emerging technologies including artificial intelligence, quantum computing, the Internet of Things and blockchain are reshaping all kinds of industries across Canada, including health care, finance, retail and more. In November, Globe Events gathered a group of early adopters of next-gen technologies together to share practical examples from their business operations – and a glimpse of what the future holds.

The virtual conversation was led by The Globe and Mail’s Senior Business Writer and Columnist, Rita Trichur, and included Stewart Hyman, Chief Technology Officer of Kyndryl Canada; Peter Bak, Chief Information Officer at Humber River Hospital; Fariba Rawhani, Chief Information Officer for Teranet; and Nastaran Bisheban, Chief Technology Officer at KFC Canada. The panel took a deeper look at where the greatest business opportunities lie within these technologies and how the use of this new tech might provide measurable results.
