The Future of [X]: Tech Trends For Your Organization
How can you prepare yourself and your business for what's next in a world of constant disruption? In this provocative presentation, futurist Amy Webb forecasts the most important changes just over your horizon––and reverse-engineers what you should be doing right now, in the present.
Amy will showcase the Future Today Institute's latest research and map scenarios that are specific to your [X] –– your organization, industry or interests –– for today and ten years into your future. Whether you’re interested in the future of work, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, geopolitics, finance, self-driving vehicles or any other area that intersects with technology, Amy will offer key insights, such as:
- How the trends emerge from the fringe and move to the mainstream.
- How these trends will impact your customers or constituents.
- Which fringe thinkers your organization should be tracking.
The Future of Donald Trump’s America
No one saw him coming. A year ago, Donald Trump was a fringe candidate––too far afield of mainstream politics to be taken seriously. In the aftermath of the 2016 Presidential Election, members of the media, business leaders, political strategists, and everyday voters all want the answer to a very simple question: What comes next? What will America––and our relationship with the rest of the world––look like in four years?
Business leaders are grappling with disruption across multiple industries and tech sectors––while everyday people will soon learn artificial intelligence will affect jobs, how Russian hackers are threatening cybersecurity and what life will be like once our cars drive themselves. This nonpartisan presentation is continuously updated, and gives critical guidance on how to think like a futurist in order to most accurately answer pressing questions about the future of our economy, business, emerging technologies and political systems in Donald Trump’s America.
Sci-Fi Meets Reality: The future, today
Soon, technology will begin to intersect with our everyday lives in weird and wonderful ways. We don't often think about that intersection, and yet emerging technology will be used to design the future of humanity. In this mind-bending session, Amy Webb will offer a provocative series of snapshots from our near and farther future. How will we communicate? Where will we live? Will sophisticated algorithms and artificially intelligent systems replace the relationships we have with other humans? What will our technology do for us? To us? The possibilities are exciting, inspiring, and a little scary.
How To Think Like A Futurist
The most successful leaders must both manage the present and innovate for the future––and this requires a new kind of strategic thinking. Drawing from her bestselling book The Signals Are Talking, Amy Webb will explain how leaders can and should use the tools of a futurist. In this presentation, you will learn how to think like a futurist and answer vitally important questions: How will a technology––like artificial intelligence, machine learning, self-driving cars, biohacking, bots and the Internet of Things––affect you, personally? How will it impact your business or your industry? Importantly, what should you do about it now? Amy Webb shows that you have the ability to not only to forecast what’s to come, but that you can create your own preferred future.
