Emerging Technologies:  The New Paradigm

In the last decade, technology has changed almost every aspect of our lives.  

The companies that will thrive in our changing landscape are the ones that can quickly adapt and integrate technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D printing, big data, sensors, and extended reality. While people have an innate capacity to adapt to new circumstances, both personally and in a business context— to do so effectively, we need a thorough understanding of the forces shaping the world around us.

Learning Objective: Stay current on emerging technologies and their relevant business applications

Focus: Exponential technologies and impact

Blockchain is a distributed network that brings trust to decentralized computing. It allows people to make transactions without needing a traditional centralized authority to act as the middleman. This talk takes the audience on a journey through decentralized organizational models that will carry us into the future of urban niche organizations, space colonies, and virtual worlds.

Section Four: Extended Reality
Extended Reality with Jody Medich

Extended reality is the spectrum of immersion from augmented to virtual reality. In this session, you’ll get an overview of all the different technologies at play, what they're each good for, how they work, and how rapidly the market is expected to grow. Next, we’ll discuss the implications of these technologies, and how they can unleash truly superhuman abilities.
