The Economy of the Future
The Economy of the Future is smart, fast, exciting, and full of opportunity, provided you’re willing to pay attention and be prepared. As the Internet Era reaches maturity, and the rise of Artificial Intelligence accelerates, we can see glimpses of what the Economy of the Future entails. Automated corporations, open source technology, rapidly evolving markets, and strong/vibrant communities are some of the features we can bank on. What kind of impact will robots, automation, and multiple internets have on your business? What kind of society can we build using citizen science and learning resources like Minecraft? 3d printers that print 3d printers, and a hyper-reality that helps us lead long and healthy lives… The potential is certainly there… What will it take for you to make the most of it?
The Future of Health: From eHealth to singularity!?
As the emergence of eHealth stabilizes and normalizes across Canada, a new era of healthcare is emerging. What shape this takes is up to us to define. We need to articulate a vision to help make it happen. In particular, the explosion of “Big Data” and mobile technology encourages a significant shift towards a patient-centric, customized, distributed and preventative healthcare system. Yet the obstacles that stand between us and a new era of health and longevity are substantive. This presentation will look at our relationship to privacy, the use of surveillance technology, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology. Institutional change is never easy, and the need for speed when it comes to research, testing and deployment will provide unique challenges.
Jesse provides a unique and customized approach to his presentations. View more industry-specific presentations here.
Workshop or Keynote | Learning at the Speed of Light: How Technology Accelerates Education
The challenge for organizations and educators in the face of rapidly evolving technology is not only how to keep up with changing tools, but also how to keep up with your employees and students themselves. How do you do more with less, while operating at a speed that makes critical thinking difficult? How do we bridge the digital divide and ensure that everyone has access to the education and empowerment our emerging society requires?
Workshop or Keynote | Technology, Leadership, and Authority: What it Takes to be Taken Seriously in an Era of Rapid Change
Jesse Hirsh has been engaged in a major research project focusing on the future of authority. The premise being that in a society that is constantly changing it is increasingly difficult to establish legitimate authority and provide the kind of leadership that is in great demand. Technology continues to have a disruptive impact on how and who people trust, leading to an unstable environment that requires a reconfiguration of how we relate to our leaders.
