The Brazilian Philanthropy Forum was an amazing chance to get in touch with some great solutions we already have in hands to accelerate performance and positive impact in society, such as big data and artificial intelligence. The sessions confirmed that technology is definitely by our side. However, we must keep sight of the human factor behind machines and algorithms.
We had the opportunity to share our vision about digital empowerment, and also the chance to show people how virtual reality is already generating protagonism and empathy in public schools in Brazil. An educational approach that promotes a conscious, ethical and entrepreneurial use of technology is certainly one of the main goals we must pursue to ensure everyone can truly benefit from the digital Era and the 4th Industrial Revolution.
