    Peter Diamandis Keynote Topics

    Technology is accelerating far more quickly than anyone could have imagined. During the next decade, we will create more wealth than we have in the past hundred years. We will also experience more upheaval than ever before.

    During this gripping and insightful keynote, Diamandis outlines a road map to our near future, describing how wave after wave of exponentially accelerating technologies will impact both our daily lives and every company. What happens as AI, robotics, and virtual reality crash into 3D printing, blockchain, and global gigabit networks? How will these convergences transform today’s biggest industries? How will this change the way we raise our kids, govern our nations, and care for our planet?

    Diamandis will also explain why the rate of technological acceleration is, itself, accelerating. He will examine a number of Meta-trends, as desired by the event, from among the following list of 10 Meta-Trends:

    1. Increasing global abundance
    2. Accelerating Demonetization & Democratization
    3. Everyone, everywhere is connected at gigabit speeds
    4. Everything, everywhere is connected (IoT/IoE)
    5. You can know anything, anytime, anywhere
    6. Autonomous personalized transport (fast + cheap)
    7. Increasing Human Intelligence (AI Support + BCI)
    8. Increasing Human Longevity “Healthspan”
    9. Capital Abundance: Access to capital everywhere
    10. Globally Abundant Cheap Renewable Energy

    Diamandis not only transforms companies, he transform industries. His pioneering work in the field of incentive competitions and commercial space has taught him how to create a culture of innovation that provides dramatic breakthroughs. He delivers key lessons and techniques to executive teams and associations worldwide.

    Diamandis is the New York Times bestselling author of “ABUNDANCE – The Future Is Better Than You Think” (#1 on Amazon, #2 on NY Times). Diamandis demonstrates how accelerating technologies allow for innovations that will be able to meet the basic water, energy, food, education and health needs of humanity and lead to a world of abundance within our lifetime.

    What exponentially advancing technologies will transform or disrupt your company and industry over the next two to 10 years? How will artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D printing, synthetic biology and infinite computing transform your business and industry? How can we use these powerful technologies to leapfrog our competition?

    In 2012, Kodak Corporation, a 100-year-old, Fortune 100 company, went bankrupt. In this same year, Instagram (also in the photography business) was acquired by Facebook for $1 billion with only 13 employees. This is a classic “linear” versus “exponential” company. Diamandis shows companies the Exponential Tools that will either transform them or put them out of business.
