The Roundtable will focus on the impact of new technologies such as blockchain and AI on corporate governance. The discussion will revolve around the following questions: Does blockchain have promise as a tool for registering ownership claims and the exercise of voting rights in listed corporations? What is the impact of AI and big data analysis on firms’ management and governance? Will smart contracts affect the boundaries between firms and markets in a number of industries?
