We live in a world where safety is a necessity and sometimes, a luxury. I mean, we don’t always have the means to ensure that our homes and families are 100% safe. That’s why I get so excited when companies like Uber go above and beyond into investigating and researching ways that we can use technology to help create public spaces that champion social justice, equality, and safety for all.
Uber – in particular – hosts an annual Tech for Safety summit that is technology-safety focused.
The aim of the 2020 summit is to find technology-driven innovative solutions to some of the most pressing societal safety-related issues.
I love that the mission of the summit is to up the ante and bring to the forefront some of Africa’s biggest threats to personal safety while highlighting the opportunities that exist in leveraging technology.
I mean, let’s be honest, the world has changed due to COVID-19. Now more than ever, safety and technology is a key to survival for people and businesses.
Safety unlocks opportunities for growth. And I appreciate that Uber believes that safety should always be a priority. That’s why they are constantly striving to better the app.
Anyways, the Tech for Safety summit, with its innovative speakers and panellists, will chat about COVID-19 safety, while equipping guests with the knowledge needed to use current and new technology to help create a safer future for all across South Africa.
The speakers and panellists will include thought leaders, corporates, start-ups and innovators and they’ll lead the summit by addressing the safety challenges faced by the pandemic and what solutions have worked
The Uber Tech for Safety 2020 summit will take place on Thursday, October 22nd.
