The Future of Almost Everything: How our world will change over the next 100 years
From the man the Wall Street Journal describes as a 'global change guru', Patrick unpacks more than one hundred of the trends that touch every aspect of our lives. Looking even into the future, predicting trends past the first decades of the 22nd century. Patrick Dixon looks at how the future will be Fast, Urban, Tribal, Universal, Radical and Ethical - a future of boom and bust and great economic change as the emerging markets grow up; a future of great advances in medicine and also greater threats from viral epidemics; a future of political shocks and greater conflicts; a future in which people will strive for more privacy and businesses will change the way they relate to their staff and their customers; a future in which there will be driverless cars and solar power generated in the desert will power cities thousands of miles away.
In this talk, Dixon shows how recent developments confirm his predictive scheme:
-Artificial intelligence and robotics - profound power and influence over our future world
-Beyond Brexit - the longer term future of the EU and UK
-The long-term impact of the MeToo movement
-The future of Truth - Fake News, propaganda and impact on democracy
-Presidential leadership - rise of powerful figureheads across the world, and potential future conflicts

Truth About Robots - Will Robots Destroy Millions Of Jobs? What Future For Human Beings At Work?
I have worked with over 400 of the world's largest companies over the last few years, as a Futurist advisor/keynote speaker - and huge numbers of them are worried about robotics / AI / Artificial Intelligence. What does it mean for our business? Are we investing enough in Big Data analytics? How will competitors attack our markets using robotics and next-generation automation? How will Artificial Intelligence control our future?
At the same time, in the media every day we see sensational headlines such as "Hundreds of millions of jobs will be lost to robots", suggesting that humankind will never be able to find enough work for tomorrow's people because so many jobs will be done by machines...
