Welcome to Season 4 of Connected Intelligence - a podcast about all the things we bring to work that aren’t actually about the work.
Why and how are we vulnerable to a global supply shortage of semiconductors?
This episode kicks off a new recurring segment: “A Global Affair with Professor Janice Stein”. In these episodes, we will dig deep on a topic that influences society as we know it today. Whether it is public policy, geopolitical issues, or the impact of technological advances.
Professor Janice Stein is a Canadian political scientist and international relations expert. She is the Belzberg Professor of Conflict Management in the Department of Political Science and the Founding Director of the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto. Janice is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and a member of the Order of Ontario and the Order of Canada; among her many distinctions.
In this episode, Janice discusses the structure of the global supply chain for semiconductor chips, the origins of geopolitical interests in Taiwan, and the urgency of developing other avenues of manufacturing semiconductors – the foundation of our digital age.
