4:00 PM • Keynote: We are living in The Fourth Age: a force multiplier of human productivity by Byron Reese
We are living in The Fourth Age: a force multiplier of human productivity
Over the last 100,000 years, there were three times in the past when humanity created a technology so profound that it permanently altered our bodies and minds, changing the trajectory of human history in a dramatic way.
Learn how Futurist, author and technologist, Byron Reese discusses these topics and describes a world where workers of all skill levels use new technology to increase their own productivity to give them more control to do the work they love, the way they want, with who they want, and where they want.
“Technology will continue to transform the workplace. That is certain. But it will do so by making humans more valuable. The biggest problems of tomorrow will not be a lack of jobs, but a shortage of humans to take advantage of all of the opportunities technology will offer.” ~Byron Reese
While much of this talk focuses on how technology will reshape the workplace, Byron pays special attention to what workers can do today to maximize their productivity tomorrow. “A few simple rules,” he explains, “will help anyone position themselves to prosper in the world of tomorrow.”
