On Friday, Reuters will host a Newsmaker event in New York featuring Microsoft President Brad Smith. Moderated by Reuters Editor-in-Chief Steve Adler, the discussion will offer Smith’s views on the promise and existential risks of our increasingly digital world, as well as insights from his book, Tools and Weapons: The Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age.

As president of one of the world’s largest technology companies, Smith has for nearly a quarter of a century been on the front lines of a technology revolution. From the explosion of social media and artificial intelligence to growing cybersecurity threats, weaponization and heightened regulatory scrutiny, the sweeping transformation of technology holds both challenges and opportunities.
