Truth about Robots - will robots destroy millions of jobs? What future for human beings at work? Robotics Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Robotics, AI, Big Data, Internet of Things, Cloud

Robots and Robotics Keynote SpeakerYesterday I shared a platform with a ROBOT to give a keynote for EY (Ernst & Young) - as I do regularly....but I'm at no risk whatsoever of losing my job to the automaton.

I have worked with over 400 of the world's largest companies over the last few years, as a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker - and huge numbers of them are worried about robotics / AI. What does it mean for our business? Are we investing enough in Big Data analytics? How will competitors attack our markets using robotics and next-generation automation.

At the same time, in the media everyday we see sensational headlines such as "Hundreds of millions of jobs will be lost to robots", suggesting that humankind will never be able to find enough work for tomorrow's people, because so many jobs will be done by machines....

Truth about Blockchain and BitCoins – impact of Blockchain on your industry, business and wider world. BitCoin and other cryptocurrencies - keynote comment

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Robotics, AI, Big Data, Internet of Things, Cloud

I have advised hundreds of the world’s largest corporations on digital trends, and one of the biggest that CEOs and boards are now talking about is Blockchain. What is Blockchain and what does it mean for us?  Could Blockchain wipe out our business, or will Blockchain help us grow? Here is a comment after my recent keynote for the global team of Generali Insurance, on Blockchain.

Blockchain means that anyone in the world with online access can prove a particular document exists, when it was sent, who it was sent to and so on.  We can also prove that an event has taken place, in a way which is fully transparent to everyone who needs to know this around the world. The implications of this are going to be huge.  And it will be many years before we work it all out.

How to make money from Big Data - and why LITTLE DATA is what really matters. Big Data spots a pattern - Little Data spots a person

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Robotics, AI, Big Data, Internet of Things, Cloud

Big Data is used by every large corporation, banks, governments and so on to make links between past events, and to predict future events. Billions of dollars are being spent (mostly wasted) by companies trying to spot patterns in trillions of data items. Big Data is used heavily to try to predict customer behaviour and to target marketing campaigns.  

However the REAL value lies in around around 0/5% of all the data.  Big Data is about spotting patterns but Little Data is all about spotting a person - turning data into real commercial value. Comment by Patrick Dixon, Futurist and Keynote Conference Speaker. Need a world-class Big Data keynote speaker for your event? Phone or e-mail Patrick Dixon now.

Future Telcos and Digital, Cloud and Big Data - convergence, innovation, mobile customers and e-payments

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Robotics, AI, Big Data, Internet of Things, Cloud

Media article for South Korea summit on ICT, telecom and digital trends. The future is about convergence and divergence. The industry trend is for companies, products and services to converge – but many of the most important future innovations in ICT will be divergent: doing things differently to serve customers better. Firstly we are seeing accelerating convergence on a global scale eg computer software, hardware and mobile companies (Microsoft /Nokia, Google / Motorola). Expect rapid convergence of telcos and banking. Mobile payments are being driven by growth in emerging markets. 70% of all mobile payments take place in the fastest growing economies, mainly in Africa eg m-Pesa, which now handles 33% of Kenya’s GDP. Expect a mobile-based global revolution in banking. Need a world-class digital disruption keynote speaker? Phone Patrick Dixon now or email.
