In as little as ten years, the very concept of money will have been forever changed. And the fact is, its happening now in real time.

Yet making sense of the reality is a challenge. Headlines scream of an ongoing rise but heightened volatility with the grandfather of all crypto-currencies, Bitcoin. At the same time, a new vocabulary has emerged that involve radical new concepts, the decentralization of authority, and rapid hyperinnovation: blockchain, Ethereum, ASIC and currency miners, hard forks and smart contracts!

What does it mean when Jamie Dymon, the head of  JPMorgan Chase calls Bitcoin a fraud and the people who buy it "stupid," and yet at the same time, the head of the IMF says that Bitcoin could give existing currencies and monetary policy a run for their money? When a cryptocurrency goes from a valuation of a few hundred dollars to over $10,000 in a matter of months? When 2018 will be defined by an acceleration of the acceptance of distributed ledger concepts at the same time that a horde of fraud artists invade this fascinating new world. 

And most important of all, what does it mean to your business and your business model? Is it a fraud, or is it a bubble? What's real, and what's not? Are we in the midst of the latest Tulip and dot.com phrase, or is there substantial change underway?

In this keynote, Futurist and technology expert Jim Carroll peels away the layers of the world of cryptocurrency, outlining the challenges and opportunities that come with the end of the concept of money as we know it. These are truly transformative times - for the realty of blockchain goes far beyond the current hype surrounding Bitcoin. The concept of distributed ledgers will change entire industries, challenge the very nature of the legal concept of offer and acceptance, and unleash a torrent of hyper innovation around business models.

Jims' clients include NASA, Disney, Johnson and Johnson, Mercedes Benz and many more. He has shared his insight on the future around the world, with events in Tokyo, London, Budapest, Dubai, Sydney, Brussels, Munich, and across North America.

Amazon is the elephant in every industry room. They will challenge and disrupt your business model, and shake your belief in the future to the core.

Why not change that before it changes you? Don’t wait for Amazon to disrupt you – disrupt yourself and disrupt Amazon first! As we witness the Amazonification of industries, deep insight into this massive-but-cheetah-like-elephant is critical, a fast strategy is required. 

Futurist Jim Carroll has a key message: Don’t compete — transform! When Amazonian scale disruption occurs, you can’t hope to complete on price, the sophistication of the online interaction, or the other areas in which Amazon (and similar disruptors) clearly excel. You need a different proposition, different ideas and a different strategy. In many cases, this will come about through an implicit decision to compete based on the unique value you can bring to the relationship – service, support, personal interaction and other factors. In doing so, you specifically choose to not compete based on a race to the bottom and price.

Futurist Jim Carroll has headlined ‘Amazonificaiton strategies’ at a wide variety of corporate leadership meetings and association events in the medical, dental and veterinary industries; in the global optometric industry; in the agricultural dealer market, in the home renovation sector, and many more. He has provided deep insight on the transformative strategies and mindset that needs to be pursued.

The acceleration of disintermediation via Amazon is a cruel reality of our modern day world. Think about the business model of a a group of agricultural dealers who sell products to farmers. The simplistic view is that they buy products from the manufacturer, and then sell them to the farmer, with an obvious markup in price. Amazon could do this (and will) with a more sophisticated online system, and avoid the cost of the markup, thereby offering a lower cost alternative. How to compete? Become an invaluable partner to the farmer in terms of advice, expertise and personal support for new initiatives, products and ideas. 

In the era of Amazon, you can’t hope to compete on price — because you will watch your business disappear! Futurist and innovation expert Jim Carroll outlines the key trends, strategies and opportunities to be pursued in the ear of Amazonian acceleration!

Powerful digital devices are now affordable "weapons of mass instruction" for all learners. Providing them to every student, as well as teachers who know how to harness their power for learning, has become the civil rights–indeed, the human rights–issue of our time, since education is the key to violence reduction, health care, employment, and community-building. The next generation of digital tools will include wearable devices that enable students to track and improve their own behaviors. Dr. Milton Chen will present examples of projects that enable students to learn more, faster than in previous generations, enabled by hardware, software, rich Internet resources, and networks of mentors. He will show examples of these innovative practices from Edutopia.org, the Lucas Foundation’s multimedia Web site and its archive of documentaries, available for free download and embedding.

Aneesh Chopra (Exclusively WSB)

From President Obama’s first full day in office to President Trump’s new Office of American Innovation, the United States has directed resources to foster a more open, innovative government. Aneesh Chopra served as the nation’s first chief technology officer and his legacy of private-sector collaboration, including his work with health and workforce data, continues to offer growth opportunities throughout the economy. His 2014 book, Innovative State: How New Technologies Can Transform Government, describes the “impatient convening” role that government should play: opening up data and encouraging its use, convening the private sector in the design and adoption of standards, and fostering an ecosystem of entrepreneurs and innovators to join in solving problems. 

In this enlightening presentation, Chopra explores:

  • Future possibilities for data innovation to improve key growth markets, including health care, energy, and education
  • How public data and private-sector analytic techniques can improve matchmaking between employers, job seekers, and training programs
  • Insights on how organizations can apply similar approaches to develop new products and deploy innovative services to meet growing customer demands

Aneesh Chopra (Exclusively WSB)

As the debate over the future of the Affordable Care Act rages in Washington, one set of reforms continues unabated: the movement to transform the way we deliver health care. As the first U.S. chief technology officer, Aneesh Chopra worked to align payment reform with advances in health IT and to shift to open more government-held health data—changes that are ushering in a golden era of IT-fueled care delivery innovation.

In this presentation, Chopra:

  • Reviews recent efforts to open up data across electronic health records, payers, and the government to foster a growing ecosystem of tech-enabled services that are tackling waste and boosting care quality
  • Explains how these efforts have helped consumers take a more active role in navigating the health-care delivery system and making better decisions at each step of their care journey
  • Offers health-care organizations a pragmatic path to building the necessary foundation for organizing, enriching, and (securely) sharing patient health data, including taking full advantage of the emerging “health internet”
  • Identifies the efforts worth advancing even in this period of policy uncertainty
