Future Forward

“We recognize change is happening,” says Michael Hainsworth. “We know that the smartphones we carry around with us, the artificial intelligence that’s being built today, and the robotics of tomorrow are all going to change our lives. But they’re going to change our lives in ways we’re really not aware of.”

In this exciting, high-energy keynote, Michael dives into what’s happening now, and what it means for tomorrow. He explores hot topics like augmented reality (are you ready for your replacement eyeballs?), biohacking and medicine, automation, transportation, smart cities, and much more. He touches on nearly every industry and gives a sweeping, big-picture look at the future that will change the way you think about technology and your industry. Count on our “resident nerd” for an engaging, eyebrow-raising talk that will have your audience buzzing.
