How can you prepare yourself and your business for what's next in a world of constant disruption? In this provocative presentation, futurist Amy Webb, a renowned authority on forecasting and strategy for business and society, will contextualize trends and explain how they fit into a more holistic vision of the future. She will showcase the latest emerging technology research in commercial real estate and explain how technology—like artificial intelligence, machine learning, self-driving cars, biohacking, bots and the Internet of Things—will affect us personally and impact our businesses and workplaces, eventually changing the way we live, work, play and think. She'll discuss how scenarios unfold into the future, and how we should prepare now. Most importantly, Webb shows that the future isn't something that happens to us passively. Instead, she helps us see ahead so that we may forecast what's to come—challenging us to create our own preferred futures.
