DBS Innovation Outlook – Responsible Innovation

Innovation is undoubtedly shaping our future. It is changing how we think and behave, and not to mention directing the global economy. While technology is advancing people’s lives, there are dimensions that should not be neglected – the main element of responsibility. As we head towards a future permeated with invisible innovation, we need to integrate the concept of responsible innovation at the very core of our innovation strategies and processes. 

The panel discussion is an extension of the conversation from the DBS Innovation Outlook where the top five innovation trends will be presented.

Moderator: Bidyut Dumra, Head of Innovation, DBS
