Fortune Magazine recently named Peter Diamandis as one of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.
Diamandis is the Founder & Executive Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, which leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions. He is also the Executive Founder and Director of Singularity University; a global learning and innovation community using exponential technologies to tackle the world’s biggest challenges and build a better future for all.
As an entrepreneur, Diamandis has started over 20 companies in the areas of longevity, space, venture capital, and education. He is also cofounder of BOLD Capital Partners, a venture fund with $250M investing in exponential technologies.
Diamandis is a New York Times Bestselling author of two books: Abundance & BOLD. He earned degrees in Molecular Genetics and Aerospace Engineering from MIT and holds an M.D. from Harvard Medical School.
Peter’s favorite saying is “the best way to predict the future is to create it yourself.”
During this gripping and insightful keynote, Diamandis outlines a road map to our near future, describing how wave after wave of exponentially accelerating technologies will impact both our daily lives and every company. What happens as AI, robotics, and virtual reality crash into 3D printing, blockchain, and global gigabit networks? How will these convergences transform today’s biggest industries? How will this change the way we raise our kids, govern our nations, and care for our planet? Diamandis will also explain why the rate of technological acceleration is, itself, accelerating. He will examine a number of Meta-trends, including:
Everyone, everywhere is connected at gigabit speeds
Everything, everywhere is connected (IoT/IoE)
You can know anything, anytime, anywhere
Increasing Human Intelligence (AI Support + BCI)
Capital Abundance: Access to capital everywhere
