When the ball dropped on the 21st century, it collided with three technological revolutions (AI, synthetic biology, quantum computing) that are redefining humanity, and three existential threats (pandemics, climate change, nuclear war) that could wipe it out. Now, twenty years later, as we transition into a new decade, futurist Cecily Sommers will address how COVID-19 is accelerating the pendular transition into a new era, and the equal and opposite potentials it is energizing for business and society. Please join us for this important discussion.
Who is Cecily Sommers?
