Economist Conferences logo 
 Following a very successful first-ever Technology Frontiers conference in March 2012 and a unique insight into the future of technology disruption in business, Ricoh once again partnered with The Economist Group to bring you the 2013 Technology Frontiers conference and new research amongst business leaders.

In its second year, Technology Frontiers brought together leading academic and business thinkers, to better understand how business will operate in the future as a result of the impacts in of technology. Central in the 2013 conference programme was the debate on Humans and Machines.

Technology has moved beyond simply transforming how we live. We are entering an era where technology will redefine who we are. It is no longer just a question of what technology can do for us, but how we should use it to gain real benefits.  At Ricoh we believe that process innovation is essential to build beneficial relationships between humans and technology.

Technology Frontiers 2013, a technology event for senior business leaders, allowed you to be part of the debate.
