Technology continues to intersect with our lives in new, weird, and wonderful ways. With tech’s integration into our daily lives becoming second nature to so much of the world, we often overlook this intersection. And yet, emerging tech will play a key role in shaping the future of humanity. In this mind-bending session, world-renowned futurist Amy Webb takes audiences on a captivating journey as she provides a thought-provoking series of snapshots into the near and far future of business and society. Drawing from her work and research as founder and CEO of the Future Today Institute, she develops a set of optimistic, neutral, and chaotic scenarios that describe plausible scenes 10 and 20 years into the future and puts forth probable answers to tomorrow’s most pressing questions about work, relationships, and our way of living.
