Here are the slides from my talk at SubOptic in Dubai today
In this keynote for SubOptic 2016, Gerd will share his 2020 foresights on technology, business and society. Exponential technological change is impacting every facet of our society, from communications and media to commerce, transportation, medical and energy. Increasingly, many things that looked like science ction only a few years ago have now become science-fact: self-driving cars, virtual reality headsets, human genome editing technologies, automated language translation, AI and cognitive computing and much more. Connectivity is a key factor in all of what Gerd calls the ‘’10 ations” i.e. digitization, automation, virtualization, disintermediation and others, and so is security and what Gerd calls ‘digital ethics’.
At the same time that technology is changing our world dramatically, humanisation of technology has also become a key topic around the globe: how do we make sure that technology does not overpower us, or take things away that we’d rather keep?
Apart from the challenges, Gerd will focus on the key future opportunities and lead the audience towards an inspiring future vision.
And some best-of’s:
