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 

The only constant is change, and the rate of change is increasing. 40% of today’s Fortune 500 companies are predicted to disappear in the next 10 years. Competition is no longer the multinational overseas; instead, it’s the exponential entrepreneur creating companies like Uber, Airbnb, DropBox, Oculus, Whatsapp, SpaceX and Tesla.

Disruption is also coming from data-driven tech giants who are entering into adjacent fields: Google into the automotive industry, Apple into the music industry, Facebook into the global telecom industry, and IBM Watson into healthcare.

As Diamandis will detail, much of this transformation is a result of rapidly accelerating exponential technologies such as Infinite Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, 3D Printing, Sensors, Networks, and Synthetic Biology. During this keynote, you will get a real sense of exponential growth, the origins of Moore’s Law, and understand how the 6 D’s—Digitization, Deception, Disruption, Dematerialization, Demonetization and Democratization—will impact your products and services.

Diamandis is the co-founder and executive chairman of Singularity University, the leading institution for the study of exponentially growing technologies. He counsels many of today’s Fortune 500 executive teams and world leaders on the impact of these technologies. In addition, Diamandis is the founder or co-founder of 17 companies using these exponential technologies to transform a number of industries.

In this highly visual and powerful keynote, Diamandis gives the audience a true understanding of the immediacy of these disruptions. Today’s companies cannot remain stagnant. They must evolve or they will die. You are either disrupting your own business model or someone else will.

This presentation will help you:

  • Understand the rate of technological change and where it’s going;
  • Understand how the 6 D’s—Digitization, Deception, Disruption, Dematerialization, Demonetization and Democratization—will impact your products and services.
  • Get an understanding of what is coming to market in the next 2 to 5 years, and how these technologies are converging to transform industries;
  • Visualize the disruptive power of exponentially growing technologies;
  • Identify opportunities to innovate and transform your own business model before someone else does.

As we become a more data-driven society, we face new questions of how best to use all this new data to improve human decision-making. Annie Duke explores the ways in which big data has the potential to overcome robust irrationalities in how we process information and solve for the problem of uncertainty. She also points out the pitfalls and dangers of big data and provides advice about how data is aggregated and collected and where the “human element” still needs to be in control of the analysis in order to interpret and model the data.

Industrial Revolution 2.0—it's the next turning point in human history and we’re right in the middle of it.

Industrial Revolution 2.0 has been about the birth, adolescence and young adulthood of the Internet. It's been about communicating, relating, evaluating and buying. From social media to the Maker Movement, this revolution has shifted the way we live, work and interact with one another. It revolves around the newfound global accessibility of making our own solutions. Creator of one of TIME magazine’s “Top 50 Inventions” with little more than $70 of over-the-counter supplies, Mick Ebeling is uniquely qualified to discuss the factors that make this the most exciting time in modern history, and how to leverage those factors for the benefit of business and the betterment of society.

Every day, we hear new stories about data: how much there is, how fast it moves, how it’s used for good or ill. Data permeates our organizations, our educational and legal systems, and our society—even our dinner-table conversation. Now that we live in a data-rich world, we need to educate ourselves about what we can do—as leaders, citizens and consumers—to use it to our best advantage.

As leaders, we crave insight that we can use to make decisions, yet we fear the risks associated with data collection. As individuals, we crave utility and convenience, yet we simultaneously fear loss of control over our privacy and our digital identities.

In clear and engaging language and with relevant, timely examples, this talk explains just why we struggle with these topics, and proposes a framework to better understand and address how we extract insight from data; and how we use it in such a way as to earn and protect trust: the trust of customers, constituents, patients and partners.

Earl Warren, former chief justice of the United States, once said, “In civilized life, law floats in a sea of ethics.” As data becomes ubiquitous, more integrated and more portable, the morass of ethical issues will only grow. Leaders who are versed in these issues will be better prepared to address them head-on, and, in doing so, protect the trust and loyalty of their customers and shareholders, and the good will of their communities.

In engaging language and with relevant, timely examples, industry analyst Susan Etlinger distills the discussion of digital ethics and data privacy into a clear framework that leaders can use to address existing digital ethics issues and plan for emerging ones. She brings together perspectives from academia, law, policy, corporations and data scientists to shed light on the current and emerging legal and ethical issues related to data collection, aggregation, analysis, storage and usage, and the way we communicate about these practices.
