During the past 100 years science and technology have shaped life as-we-know-it, almost beyond comprehension. Today we stand in the foothills of a new revolution. Life extension, face transplants, gene therapy, designer molecules, stem cell organs and submarines in our veins!? The first person to live to 1000 may already have been born.
New science and an emerging set of 21st century technologies, embracing NanoTechnology and BioTechnology, are about to alter the way we live and work in fundamental ways that we cannot yet imagine. Technology is empowering us to shape our own direction.
There will be bewildering new choices in personal health and wealth. Opportunities for business will explode. Those who are prepared to see them as such will turn these opportunities into economic performance – at a personal and national level. The detractors will be many. Where do you stand?
The future is ours to choose. So, where do you want to go?
This keynote is passionately presented by one of Futureworld’s Network of Futurists.
