STORY

Digital Transformation consists of interviews with visionaries, futurists, scientists, entrepreneurs, politicians, artists, authors, and others around the world who speak about their views and hopes for the digital future. Technology offers nations, companies, and people amazing tools. Many of them are useful, others less so. If we use them in a responsible way, the future isn’t inevitable, it is what we make of it.
The purpose of this documentary project is to feature as many opinions about the digital future as possible to encourage a lively conversation. Interviews for this project take place with people who have strong thoughts about the economic and social impacts of technology in the digital age. So far, interviewees from Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Austin, Toronto, Bern, Zurich, London, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, Tokyo, and Sydney have participated.
