The pandemic amplified digital technologies' role and pushed us sooner into scenarios we had anticipated for later in the future, giving way to multidimensional concerns about the impact of digitization and new technologies especially AI, on markets, production, consumption, education, labor, expected employment standards, government operation, and regulation, among other areas. There is now an urgency to focus on the impact of digitization on economic and social well-being, as well. This session was held in partnership with the Friedrich-Ebert- Stiftung (FES) Egypt as part of the Center’s tenth annual workshop, a four-part webinar series under the title of ‘Beyond COVID-19: Conversations on AI, Data, and the Future of Work in MENA’. Speakers: Armando Guio Espanol, affiliate, Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society, Harvard University, Monica Kerretts-Makau, academic director, Thunderbird School of Global Management in Nairobi, Kenya, and Fabian Stephany, economist and freelance data scientist, Oxford Internet Institute at Oxford University.
