Technology is increasingly affecting geopolitics, human rights, security policy and global development with new opportunities as well as risks emerging. Plus, there are many tech companies in which their economic value amounts to that of a country. As a reaction, the Danish government elevated technology as a foreign policy priority as part of the "TechPlomacy-initiative" to acknowledge the key role that data- driven innovation and tech giants play in today's society.
On "The Chamber" this week, we sit down with the world's first tech ambassador Casper Klynge to talk about how governments can best engage private companies and other key stakeholders in addressing challenges and opportunities arising from rapid technological change. He also shares his vision for Seoul-Copenhagen cooperation for the 4th Industrial Revolution and the future.
