Impossible Minus One: How Technology Is Redefining Possibility
Share |
Monday, May 8, 9:00–10:00 a.m.

Around the world, in military laboratories, universities, and garages alike, innovators from all fields are working on technology that is bringing to life a world previously thought to be straight from science fiction. Advances in robotics, computing, health sciences, and many other fields are coming at us at such high speeds that the progress we have made in the last century is easy to take for granted. We must take notice, however. In this talk, Fab Dolan asks us to pause and reflect on the rapid advances we’re seeing across all industries and shows us a glimpse of what could be next. More than just a highlight reel of new technology, this talk asks of us, as business leaders, employees, and individuals, “What does it mean to live and work in an exponentially changing world?”

We are all in the business of tech now, he says: it’s time to let go of the passive consumerism that has defined much of our relationship with computers. From startups that acquire millions of users overnight to global corporations embracing an exponential worldview, Dolan explores the challenges and opportunities facing individuals and companies in this great age of innovation.
