The World Economic Forum has been way ahead on the major technology trends. Fellow South African and Silicon Valley hero Paul Maritz was here talking about Cloud Computing long before it caught on. Ditto smartphones, twitter, youtube and other transformative technologies we now accept as mainstream. Blockchain is the next wave that's about to become ubiquitous, enhancing the role that cyber security will need to play. Stuart McClure is at the forefront of using artificial intelligence and processing Big Data to protect the world against cyber criminals. And if you think you're not in the sights of these miscreants, consider what Paypal CEO Dan Schulman told the Edelmans Trust Barometer event this morning: "There are companies that have been hacked. And companies who delude themselves that they haven't been." One day the world may salute Stuart McClure in the same way it shall the people who cure HIV/Aids and cancer.
