Overview of exponential technologies and what they are making possible

Robert Blake

The program will start with the basics of exponential technologies and their progression. Vivek will detail advances in fields such as computing, medicine, sensors, artificial intelligence, digital manufacturing, robotics, nano-materials and synthetic biology. He will show how 3D printing and robotics will revolutionise manufacturing; advances in DNA sequencing, and how synthetic biology will make it possible to engineer drugs for the individual and create personalised stem cell lines. And how autonomous, self-driving cars will revolutionise urban transport, and low‐cost tablets and artificial‐intelligence-based learning systems will bring education to the world’s masses. Additionally, learn how Star Trek-like tricorders, holodecks and replicators are becoming a reality.

Risk for corporations, identification, surveillance, and business intelligence

Exponential technologies are creating unprecedented security risks. Tarun Wadhwa will explain how the inclusion of sensors, analytics and information in every part of the corporation has led to widespread vulnerabilities. As a result, the prospect of hacking and manipulation into places that traditionally carried far less risk is greater. The companies being built for the future must take into account that equipment and objects can be remotely hijacked, and executives will have to deal with cutting-edge industrial espionage far deeper than anything previously possible. Hostile governments and organised crime can reach far deeper into the operations of a company from any place in the world. This session will highlight best practices, detail what can be done to prepare for these threats, and show how some companies are successfully anticipating security challenges. More than just a change in approach, understanding tomorrow’s threats will require an entirely different mindset.

11:30

Convergence and industry disrupt

Changes in technology are happening at a scale which was unimaginable before and will cause practically every industry — including finance, insurance, health care, manufacturing,transportation, education, IT services and communications — to be disrupted over the next few years. A large number of companies that are presently the leaders in their industries will not likely exist in 10 years. Too many industry executives are not aware of the changes that are coming, are reluctant to invest the type of money that is be required for them to reinvent themselves, or are protecting legacy businesses. Vivek Wadhwa will explain how exponential technologies converge and create new industries.He will illustrate how advancing technologies will affect several industries and whole job functions. Disruption is a double-edged sword which allows companies that lead the change to have the trillion-dollar market capitalisations. This session will teach business executives how to watch for these disruptions and to take advantage of them.

12:00

Industry disruption workshop

Participants will be divided into diverse groups of four to five people. You will be asked to select a business area and discuss the technologies that might disrupt them. Each group will prepare a series of scenarios and discuss these with the class.

13:00

Lunch

14:00

Innovating in the exponential era

Vivek Wadhwa will teach some of the new rules going forward, including differences between big companies and startups and new work paradigms (we are always on, connected; everything is urgent; adapt or perish). He will also explore how information resides in the cloud, knowledge spreads instantaneously, ideas come from anywhere, and how success now depends on sharing rather than hoarding knowledge. He will illustrate the new techniques of crowdsourcing, crowd creation and contests, and discuss the importance of building an entrepreneurial culture that empowers employees.

14:45

Entrepreneurship workshop

Participants will be asked to assemble in groups of four or five people and take the role of nascent entrepreneurs who are trying to enter their industry. They will be asked to think, and act, like the Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who are gunning for Goliath. They will be presented the challenge of disrupting a specific line of business that the company is engaged in. They will also be asked to design contests for solving key problems faced by the company. Risk for corporations, identification, surveillance, and business intelligence will also be explored.

15:30

Coffee & Networking

16:00

Policy, law, ethics

A discussion on the regulatory and legal challenges posed by exponential trends for business, industry and society at large. With technologies advancing faster than our ability to regulate their uses, the traditional approaches of governments and institutions are also facing massive disruption. The focus will be on the importance of anticipating and understanding the legal and ethical ramifications of technological change.

17:00

The future is what we make it

Vivek Wadhwa will conclude with a discussion of the paths that lay ahead of us as we rebuild our societies and institutions over the next decade.

19:30

Networking Dinner

The group will divided up and rewarded with dinner at San Francisco’s finest culinary experiences in anticipation of the main event.
