World Economic Forum Annual Meeting

Davos-Klosters, Switzerland

January 22-25, 2019

The 2019 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting theme, "Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution," addressed the fragility and controversies facing leaders today and encouraged them to build the future in a constructive, collaborative way.

EarthTime, a Carnegie Mellon visualization tool, was exhibited throughout the week on a billboard-sized display. In attendance from CMU's CREATE Lab were Illah Nourbakhsh, Randy Sargent, and Gabriel O'Donnell. Topics included workforce trends, ocean warming and global trade.

Justine Cassell, a professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute participated in several panels including a discussion on algorithmic bias, which contributes to inequality in the workplace among women and underrepresented minorities.
