There is a LOT at stake. The impact and ramifications of a hyper-connected world and digital disruption will be amazing and scary at the same time –
Just think how much 5G, AR/VR, AI, IOT, Big Data Analytics, Robotics, Cybersecurity, Facial recognition, Autonomous Vehicles, Drones and the big five tech companies – GAFAM will change the world and business.
Which ones will have the biggest impact soonest?
On the Global scale the impact and threats of Superpower Shift, Nuclear War, AI, Pandemics and Climate Change will be significant.
FUTURE SUSTAINABILITY will also be challenging. New solutions like Alternative Energy & Batteries, Transport options, Foods/Meat, Waste/Plastics, Cleantech, Universal Basic Income, Climate Engineering, Collaborative Consumption and a Sharing Economy are HOT global topics.
The FUTURE of HEALTH – Monitoring Devices, Biotechnology, Genomics, Nanotechnology, DNA testing and an understanding of the Gut are just a few that will disrupt the traditionally reactive Health models.
