What is on the Horizon and How it Will Change Your Life?

The upcoming SingularityU Australia Summit provides an opportunity to prepare for a future that looks nothing like the past.

New technologies are exploding around the world, rapidly changing the way we live, play and work. So, what can we expect in the next 12 months and beyond?

Singularity University Ambassador Kaila Colbin is at the forefront of exponential technologies, having spoken to CEOs around the globe about a future with unprecedented opportunities; one to look forward to and embrace with adequate preparation and knowledge.

“We’re already seeing the impact of exponential technologies. Companies, governments, institutions and individuals need to start learning about new technologies and considering the opportunities they will create,” Colbin, a native New Yorker who is now based in Christchurch NZ says.

“Technologies from robotics to artificial intelligence to virtual reality are advancing exponentially. We are living in the most amazing time in human history, and the impact on the way we live and work will be dramatic.”

We’re encountering some of the greatest transitions that any generation has ever had to face.

Technological disruption is already affecting every part of our lives; every business, every industry, every society – even what it means to be “human.” These changes show no signs of slowing down; in fact, they’re accelerating rapidly. 

But the ever-increasing pace of change doesn’t just hold challenges – it holds opportunity. We are shifting from an economic model based on scarcity to one of abundance. What are the strategic implications? What kinds of policies do we need? What is the impact on our economy? What are the ethical considerations? None of the old rules apply.

Founded by tech legends Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis, Singularity University helps people understand exponential technologies and how they can be used to address humanity’s biggest challenges.

The SingularityU Australia Summit is an experience you don’t want to miss – an opportunity to prepare for a future that looks nothing like the past.

We’re proud to partner with the summit to bring this fantastic three-day conversation to Australian shores.

Join us 19-21 February at the SingularityU Australia Summit – and be prepared for what lies ahead.
