In less than a month, the world’s leading experts in disruptive technology and decentralization will come together at d10e Bucharest to discuss the rapidly-changing landscape of global technology. Joining the lineup of top-level speakers is world-renowned author, speaker, visionary, and investor David Orban, founder of Singularity University, Network Society Research, and Network Society Ventures.
David founded Network Society Research as a way to assess exponential technological growth in all sectors, focusing on decentralized technologies in particular. The organization’s site points out that “A set of simultaneous technologies is growing exponentially, with the common feature of being decentralized, and organized in a network. This contrasts with the centralized and hierarchical organization of today’s traditional society and its basic functions. The shift from the old to the new structure will subject the Nation State to an unprecedented pressure. The Network Society project creates a vision and analytical tools to allow individuals, enterprises and the society at large to deal positively with this unstoppable change.”
Network Society Ventures is a sister company founded by David, a global venture investment firm that works with Network Society research to identify and fund promising disruptive technology companies at the seed-stage. The venture firm focuses on investing in companies making technological investments in the sectors that fall under the “8 Pillars of Change,” according to the Network Society Project. These sectors are Energy, Manufacturing, Food, Health, Learning, Finance, Security, and Policymaking.
At d10e Bucharest, David will be presenting on the necessity of a solid technological foundation in order to make widespread social and economic change sustainable. Giving a broader context, he will explain how this process has occurred throughout the ages and how technology today is pushing us into the future. As David explains, “Bitcoin and the blockchain, in this sense, are perfectly part of the picture, of the broader context. Because finance and banking are themselves technologies that this mathematical development is accelerating toward a decentralized network, where previously hierarchical and centralized trust structures are reengineered and re-implemented in a manner that better corresponds with the needs of the modern world.”
