These advances are having a major impact on our lives, and this will probably continue to be the case for the foreseeable future. This may, at first, seem to be a very positive prospect, but there are important reasons to be concerned. Let's start with the benign effects. The plus side of technology.

More than 50 years have passed since Robert Solow published the path-breaking model of economic growth for which he won the Nobel Prize in This model proposed that growth occurred not solely from the accumulation of capital and increase in labor, as previously theorized, but also from what Solow called “technological progress”—a term now better known as total-factor-productivity.

In an effort to broaden our understanding of technology-related risks, for this year’s World Economic Forum Global Risks Report we supplemented our standard risk perceptions survey with a special technology module.

We asked respondents a number of questions about their perceptions of 12 emerging technologies expected to play an important role in digital evolution, from AI and.
