    Navigating Technological Change at Light Speed

    Unprecedented advances in technology have now made science fiction a reality. In only a handful of years, we’ve moved to the near worldwide use of handheld computing, the full mapping the human genome, and the advent of drones and driverless cars, to name just a few life-changing developments. This trajectory of technological advancement is only getting faster.

    Alongside a balanced evaluation of the impacts of both recently arrived technology or developments just around the corner, Vivek examines:

    • How driverless cars are a perfect metaphor for our anxiety over where technology is headed
    • What conditions make services or sectors ripe for a giant leap into the future
    • Which industries stand to benefit most, and which will be upended
    • Why Artificial Intelligence is both the most important breakthrough and the most dangerous technology ever created by man
    • When, and if, society will accept robotic caregivers, housekeepers, and even warriors
    • Whether cybersecurity can begin to keep up with our ubiquitous connectivity

    Disruption and Opportunity:

    How existing industries will be disrupted and new trillion dollar industries will emerge


    Practically every industry will be disrupted over the next few years, including finance, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, education, I.T. services, and communications. Very few of today’s Fortune 500 companies will be on that list by the early 2020s. They will go the way of Blockbuster, Kodak, RIM, Compaq, and Nokia.

    Businesses must learn the new rules of the innovation game and transform their employees into intrapreneurs who think and act like the Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who are gunning for Goliath.

    Vivek Wadhwa will teach:

    • the basics of exponential technologies and convergence
    • provide examples of the disruptions that are underway in several industries
    • discuss the new rules of the innovation game
    • challenge his audience members to think like today’s technology entrepreneurs, and to build the new billion-dollar businesses within their companies

    How Technology Will Eat Medicine: Future of Healthcare

    When Apple announced that it was developing a watch that had the functions of a medical device, it became clear that the company was eyeing the $3 trillion healthcare industry; that the tech industry sees medicine as the next frontier for exponential growth. Apple isn’t alone. Companies such as Google, Microsoft, and Samsung and hundreds of startups also see the market potential and have big plans. They are about to disrupt healthcare in the same way in which Netflix decimated the video rental industry and Uber is changing transportation.

    This is happening because several technologies such as computers, sensors, robotics, and artificial intelligence are advancing at exponential rates. Their power and performance are increasing dramatically as their prices fall and their footprints shrink.

    Vivek Wadhwa will give you a crash course in exponential technologies such as:

    • Computing
    • Artificial Intelligence
    • Sensors
    • Synthetic biology
    • Robotics
    • Describe how they will converge and help turn our sick-care system into one that can truly focus on health care
