In this history and insight-packed keynote, author Malcolm Gladwell recounts the effect of the groundbreaking WWII technology, the Norden bombsight. The invention was meant to make bomb droppings more precise, reducing unnecessary pain and suffering from war. However, the Norden bombsight was used over Hiroshima. Regardless of efforts and intentions of technologies or ideas, there is always the potential for evil manipulations.

In a world that is becoming increasingly more dominated by technology, social media and digital platforms, Gladwell’s speech represents a number of implications for society today. Being interpreted as a warning or a set of very insightful observations, people from a wide range of industries can learn something valuable from this speech.
