how will artificial intelligence change our future?

Already today AI is our constant companion. Most of the time we don’t even recognize it anymore but Alexa, Siri, Cortana & Co are part of our everyday life. It is not surprising that the discussions around the topic AI don’t decrease. And justifiably so, says the futurologist and Global Topspeaker Kai Gondlach. Next to supporting our daily life, AI is also becoming a prominent part of our business world. Shelves in supermarkets get filled in order of limited intelligent Big Data algorithms on the needs of local customers. Thereby the logistic, purchasing and storage of goods changes. What is the status quo nowadays and how much of our future will be focused on artificial intelligence?

Whether Google, Microsoft or Facebook: All digital companies focus their research on artificial intelligence and making processes easier, faster and more customer orientated. To accomplish that, computers shall be programmed to detect mistakes and learn autonomously. Futurologist Kai Gondlach shows in his lecture how we can use these competences and become more intelligent ourselves.

At the same time the Global Topspeaker takes away the fear of the superiority of computers. This lecture engages the audience to think and discuss about questions like “Will computers be controllable if they become more and more intelligent? Are computers capable of making emotional and moral decisions?”. Being a well experienced Keynote Speaker Kai Gondlach brings up new questions around the topic AI and gives an outlook on the development of AI in the next decade and shows, how it will enrich our world.

the "internet of things" - business model of the future

More and more everyday objects are connected to the internet and partly networked with each other. The “Internet of Things” is fuelled by the exponential increase in the performance of computers while prices are falling at the same time. Around 25 billion devices – computers, smartphones, vehicles, traffic infrastructure and many more – now communicate with each other worldwide via the internet. This gigantic network releases undreamt-of network effects that increase exponentially with the number of individual transmitters. Futurologist Kai Gondlach shows in this exciting lecture what effects the “Internet of Things” will have in the future, how our consumer behaviourism will change and gives answers on the question, how miscellaneous economic sectors will change in the course of digitalisation.

the future of municipalities

The city of the future will become a smart city: In his presentation, Kai Arne Gondlach illustrates what citizens expect from urban services in the future and how municipalities and city administrations can prepare accordingly. Innovative technologies are changing urban coexistence – for municipalities, this development brings new challenges. The Global Topspeaker and futurologist offers his audience amazing insights into the world of urban technology and visionary concepts for urban development.

life and security in the city of the future

Adaptive cities, urban technology, smart homes and buildings as well as green energy & Co will characterise the city of our future. Thus, living and security structures adapt to a modified lifestyle. Accompanying the trend for urbanisation, the search for identity, for possibilities of shaping life and above all for freedom will be part of the culture of the future. The urban citizens of the future do not want to burden themselves with a car but at the same time expect their mobility and freedom to be guaranteed. They do not want long-term rental agreements for living space but prefer dwelling, working and living flexibly in several places at once. Welcome to the future of sharing economy.

New Work

The world of work is in a state of upheaval: employers are struggling to find qualified specialists, and the supply of average employees is also dwindling in times of demographic change. Rapid technological progress replaces jobs in historically unseen quality and quantity - even expert occupations are not safe from the current wave of automation. And then there are the employees themselves, who are placing ever higher demands on employers in terms of their individual employment structures. Sabbatical, job sharing and hospitation here, part-time, BYOD and home office there. As a consequence, the personnel departments are overtaxed with bureaucracy and have no time for personnel development or operational health management.

health and immortality

"The first person that will live to be 1,000 years-old has already been born," said biomedical gerontologist and immortality researcher Aubrey de Grey. He is one of the internationally renowned experts with whom Kai Gondlach, a 5-star speaker and futurologist, regularly discusses the topic of health and medicine of the future. It sounds incredible and like science fiction - but what if de Grey and other experts in the field are right? Have the courage to think the unthinkable!
