However, the sheer magnitude and speed of these changes, as well as the inevitable displacement brought by greater automation and ongoing challenges such as uneven Internet connectivity in developing economies, run the risk of increasing the divide between those able to access, effectively use, and benefit from technology and knowledge, and those trying to catch up. After all, in addition to greater access to knowledge, it is the ability of enterprises, industries, governments, and individuals to effectively adopt and apply this knowledge, data, and technology that results in tangible economic and societal gains. And, some countries have economic foundations, infrastructure, and innovation ecosystems that are more conducive to embracing and supporting such changes.
