Future Shock: How to see the opportunities beside the dangers

Synopsis: This keynote will address the current state of “Future Shock” that we are all experiencing at one level or another: be it individually – as citizens and professionals, or collectively – as organizations, corporations, nations and even as a civilization. It will lay out the full horizon of future possibilities while highlighting both the unique opportunities and the grave dangers we are facing. It will break down exponential technologies such as AI, genetics, robotics, nanotech, synthetic biology, the blockchain, etc. and how those test the very meaning of being human. It will challenge, scare, and inspire you to start your own “Conversation with the Future” and hopefully give birth to your own ideas. It will finish by sharing ancient and modern strategies for building resilience and enhancing adaptation in every facet of your life.
