Problem description

What is the future of corparate governance? Will we still have directors and boards in 2050 or will they be replaced by technology? Maybe this is a bridge too far, but technology will definitely impact the structures of corporates and the decision making processes.

Are board of directors aware of this future and are they able to anticipate? Do they take into account the new ways of working and thinking on their level as well? And what is the impact of technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence on the corporate goverance?

What are ethical and legal implications of these changes? How can this benefit our world?
