The latest news from Gerd Leonhard, Futurist & Humanist, Keynote Speaker, Author of 'Technology vs Humanity', Film-Maker, and CEO of The Futures Agency in Zürich / Switzerland.

Greetings everyone,
This is a big week: my new ‘super-keynote’ format ’The Future Show LIVE’ will premiere at SIBOS Innotribe 2016 in Geneva TOMORROW, Wednesday at 9.30 am CET.  TFSLive will go way beyond the good old keynote format of slides & clickers, presenting an utterly immersive, riveting, fully interactive, custom-produced show using multiple screens, special effects and live VJing by TFA Studio chief and art director Jean Francois Cardella. With TFSLive, we are aiming to create an unforgettable experience that redefines what a 'keynote’ can be… in the future:) 
The topic of this particular Future Show is 'Technology vs. Humanity’ - incidentally the same than my new book - however, we will soon offer 2 additional topics, as well: digital transformation and artificial intelligence. Please ping my office anytime if you’re interesting in bookings.
If you can’t be there in person be sure to tune into the webcast via this link - it should be quite amazing. We will have an edited version available on my Youtube channel soon after the event, as well.
Starting next week, I will return to the usual, more broader coverage of futuristic links and nuggets. 
Thanks for your time and attention, and … live long & prosper!
Gerd Leonhard

Some select quotes from 'Technology vs. Humanity'
“Continuing to imagine our future in a linear way will probably lead to catastrophically flawed assumptions about the scale, speed, and potential impacts of change”
“Anything that can be digitized or automated, will be – and anything that cannot be digitized or automated will become extremely valuable”
"Digital ethics will evolve into a burning, un-ignorable issue for every individual and organization as technology permeates every aspect of human life and activity”
"There are some things we should not attempt to digitize or automate—because they define what we are as humans”
