"New technologies such as AI, machine learning, autonomous vehicles and the Internet of things are set to transform business and society as we know it," says Troy Wright, CEO of Lendified and chair of Toronto-based RSI (Rethink Sustainability Initiatives). "But their cumulative impact will test business's ability to innovate and seize new opportunities and challenge society's ability to adapt to changing behaviours and economic models.

The summit will explore such questions as:
- How can businesses and organizations maximize the benefits of disruptive technologies?
