Revealing The Invisible: How Artificial Intelligence is About to Change Everything

The world is at the precipice of one of the most dramatic shifts in history: the transition from an industrial society to one that is based on a deep understanding of an entirely new form of knowledge capital, behavior—our behaviors as well as those of the intelligent machines that we are building.

And it’s not just human behaviors that are being captured and analyzed. AI-powered autonomous vehicles, smart devices, algorithms, and intelligent machines will all exhibit behaviors. In this very near future, every person and digital device will have its own digital-self—a digital twin which knows more about us than we know about ourselves. These intelligent objects will communicate with each other across vast digital ecosystems, creating a level of collaboration and transparency we can barely imagine today. Your digital-self will be one of your most valuable assets, requiring radical new technologies and approaches for how you own, protect, and share your digital behaviors.

Far-fetched? Only if you discount the enormous power of new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, which will use the invisible patterns in all of our behaviors to develop an intimate understanding of what drives us, where we see value, and how we want to experience the world.

Fascinating, engaging, and incredibly timely, Revealing the Invisible provides a front row seat to the future of business and our lives in the 21st century.

 

Digital Disruption/Transformation and Business Ecosystems

The single most significant shift in business is underway - Digital Business Ecosystems. Simply put, Digital Business Ecosystems are at the heart of successful high growth companies such as Uber, Airbnb, Tesla, Google, Amazon, Netflix, Alibaba, Samsung, Nest, and GE.

Digital Ecosystems create entirely new business models that drive out all of the friction in an industry and use data and technology to create an entirely new user experience that provides an integrated and nearly effortless customer experience.

In this leading edge keynote, Tom looks at how Digital Disruption, Transformation and Business Ecosystems will be critical to the success of every business in every industry over the decades to come.

 

Gen Z

One of the most profound changes in business and society is the emergence of the post-millennial generation, Gen Z.

While every new generation has faced its share of disruption in technology, economics, politics and society, no other generation in the history of mankind has had the ability to make sure that every human being (and every “thing” ) on the planet is connected to each other, fully educated, and economically engaged. What might this mean for the way in which we build our business, markets, and institutions for education in the future?

In this revolutionary keynote drawing from his recent book, The Gen Z Effect, Tom delves into a vision of the future that will not only disrupt but also reinvent almost every aspect of how we work, live and play. From radical new approaches to marketing and manufacturing to the potential obliteration of intellectual property and the shift to mass innovation, Tom provides a mind-bending view of why we will need to embrace Gen Z as the last best hope for taking on the world’s biggest challenges and opportunities, and how you can prepare yourself and your business for the greatest era of prosperity and advance the world has ever experienced.

 

The Innovation Zone

In this lightning-paced, tour-de-force session Tom looks at how companies are radically changing their approach to innovation by learning how to fail fast, embrace uncertainty, build for the unknown, abandon the success of the past, focus on their core competencies, and challenge conventional wisdom. Tom uses examples from some of the pioneering innovators from Sony to Apple and 3M to NASA to illustrate some of the best and brightest success stories of innovation at work. His views will provide a prescription for change in how you approach innovation, in a way that is straight-forward, comprehensive, and, above all else, incredibly practical. You’ll identify the ways in which you can drive your own organization’s efforts to increase innovation and better leverage the latent creativity in every organization.

Come prepared for an enlightening and life-changing discussion about the importance of innovation and get ready to take a hard look at how culture, generations, and leadership impact the way we innovate.

You’ll leave this session with a roadmap and a context for your conference experience and with specific insights, methods and tools to help you quantify your organization’s innovative ability as well as a solid foundation for the decisions you will need to make in the months and years ahead.

 

Living in the Cloud

The Cloud is the hottest topic since the advent of the Internet. And nobody can speak to it with more insight, energy, and humor than Tom. It’s why HP, Microsoft, Gartner, Intel, Cisco and many others have asked Tom to keynote their organizations’ Cloud events. Drawing on his book, Cloud Surfing, Tom paints a powerful picture of how The Cloud will change the way we live, work and play.

How will The Cloud define your job, your company, how you do business, and innovation?

The key is that technology is only a small part of The Cloud. Just as important is the way The Cloud changes the way we collaborate, work, how we are influenced and how we influence, and how we experience the world.

Join Tom as he takes you Cloud Surfing to better understand how we can respond to this massive change in order to transform ourselves and our businesses!

 

Hyperconnectivity and The Internet of Everything (IoE)

The Internet of Everything (IoE) is one of the hottest business and tech topics to come along in years, and nobody can better speak to the impact that IoE will have on our organizations and our lives than Tom Koulopoulos. Tom has worked with many of the cutting edge organizations that are developing the IoT and his research has uncovered trends and startling insights about the new business models that will emerge as a result of the IoT.

Imagine that by 2100 the world will have 100 times as many computing devices than grains of sand on all the world's beaches! What sort of society, economy, and businesses will that enable? Join Tom as he connects you to a future of nearly endless possibilities.
