Evolving Tech

In the summer issue of i3, we look at the power of NEXTGEN TV that is providing new interactive experiences. We also examine the promise self-driving vehicles offer in safety, efficiencies and independence for the elderly and disabled. How close are we to achieving this dream? CTA’s Tiffany Moore talks with Intel’s CDIO Dawn Jones about the important benefits for companies that advance diversity and inclusion including advancing innovation. Finally, if disrupted supply chains are impacting your business, Cesar Remis, head of Mexico’s Office for the Implementation of the USMCA, explains how migrating from a cost-efficiency supply chain structure to a more resilient scheme can minimize the risk of future disruptions.

From the CEO

The economy is humming with industry sales setting records, but our industry also faces challenges. Our nation’s economy has record growth with Q1 GDP rising to 6.4% and the Fed expecting 7% growth this year. But this reflects pent up demand and is off the low base during the 2020 economy-stopping pandemic.
