In 2020, digital currencies were one of the hottest topics in town. China was on the way to launching its own central bank digital currency, or CBDC, and many other countries have launched CBDC research projects. Even Facebook has proposed a global digital currency called Libra.

Introducing MIT Technology Review Roundtables

I’m excited to announce that MIT Technology Review is launching a new subscriber-only series of online events called Roundtables. These are 30-minute monthly conversations with our writers and editors that aim to keep you up-to-date on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, biotechnology, climate change and more.

In the first, on August 10, David Rothman, editor-in-chief of MIT Technology Review, will talk with editor-in-chief Matt Honan, and they will discuss the impact of artificial intelligence on the economy. Second, on September 12th, I (Charlotte, our news editor!) will be speaking with Melissa Heikle, our senior AI reporter, about a topic she has a lot of expertise in: How should we regulate AI?
