Earlier this year RADII headed to Hangzhou “unconference” 2050 to host a series of events exploring culture, technology and digital currents in contemporary China. The inaugural FUTURE OF X events featured a Grammy Award winning musician, a pioneering animation studio founder, one of the leading collectors of “post-internet” art in China, and hyper intelligent robot Sophia, the first robot to have received citizenship of a country.

We were also joined by a diverse panel of experts to discuss the shifting nature of consumption amid the swirl of technological advancement, touching upon issues such as craftsmanship, human interactions, and the impact of such behavior upon our planet.

The panel was comprised of Adam G.Y. Chen, Founder & CEO of CREATEC and Chairman of Shanghai Creative Collective, Emily Cheung, Cultural & Heritage Columnist at 中国广告 and Founder of STW赏游 Platform, Zak Manion, Innovation & Analytics Associate Director at ABInBev, Adrian Lai, CEO and Founder of social e-commerce platform Yumi and System & Co. and our moderator Ruby Chui, Founding Partner of Brandnographer and a World Economic Forum Global Shaper. You can discover their insights below:
