Do we really have a revolution? Many people ask about it because they haven’t seen any significant changes in their daily lives yet. They go to work in the same place, they do shopping in the same market they did for years and they spend their free time in the same way they used to.
And yet the world is changing at an exponential pace. Many experts believe that technology will never develop so slow as it does today. Many also say that you cannot stop the revolution and you should better adapt to it and became a tech-friendly person because that’s the only vision ahead of us.
Is future uncertain?
Ray Kurzweil – the most important futurologist in the world, whose predictions reaches the 86% level of effectiveness, shares his forecast on new technologies and their impact on the world in the next 20 years.
Drones, robots, virtual reality, longevity, and omniscient AI – those are the things we’ll meet in the future
So what’s now? Since there’s already a robot which is able to serve 2000 meals, an AI-lawyer, autonomous truck, and Alexa, where is the place for humans and how should they prepare for a new reality. Should we all learn how to code? Definitely not, but the way we leave and work will change dramatically and we should know how to embrace those changes.
The speech prepared by Jowita Michalska in the spirit of storytelling will touch all the issues mentioned above as well as present specific people known as “future-proof”. Jowita is the founder of Digital University and Singularity University, ambassador.
