Ambassador Ido Aharoni, Consul General of Israel in New York, gave a presentation on “The Information Revolution: Challenges and Opportunities for Israel”.
The way we communicate and access information is changing at an unprecedented pace. The world is over-saturated with information. Every day, the internet produces an incomprehensible volume of new facts, ideas, insights, gratifications and opinions. With more than one billion websites online, most search engines cannot even begin to effectively cover this unimaginable and enormous ocean of information. How will this changing landscape affect Israel?
