“Technology will mirror the culture and the psychology creating it. We need new psychological scaffolding to work with. Less fear and more optimism.” – Gray Scott – PSYCHOLOGY TODAY
“We’ve got Google Glass and headsets now, and in just a few years you could go through a day seeing as much digital information around you as you do material reality. Can technology drive some people to insanity? It already does. Psychedelics are the closest thing to an immersive digital world.” – Gray Scott – SAN FRANCISCO MAGAZINE
“The real question is, when will we draft an artificial intelligence bill of rights? What will that consist of? And who will get to decide that? Who gets to decide the robotic bill of rights? It’s going to be controversial.”
– Gray Scott – THE STAR
In some ways, we are closer than anyone can imagine to a new relationship between technology and our minds. It is inevitable: Humans and machines are merging. Neurotechnology is just one more step in humanity’s digital neuronal evolution into the neuronalverse.” – Gray Scott –
“This is the year of the wrist revolution. In five years, it will be the bodysuit revolution, and the suit will track everything and be the main computer.” – Gray Scott – NEW YORK POST
“For the very first time, human beings are being offered a new way of existing on this planet. Advancements in AI and robotics may allow us to automate everything. Robots will harvest, cook and serve our food. They will work in our factories, drive our cars and walk our dogs. Like it or not, the age of work is coming to an end. IEET
“There’s no longer this big divide between medicine and technology,” says Gray Scott, a futurist and co-executive producer of upcoming documentary The Future of Work and Death. “We are increasingly becoming cyborg-like beings. We are becoming literally what we create. Biology, physics, and technology are evolving towards one-and-the-same-thing.” – SINGULARITY HUB
What if the future was simulated? Innovations rewriting the rules – We are heading toward the simulated reality singularity – a crunch in digitisation. A state of pure digital reality that is indistinguishable from the reality that we see around us now. Every sensorial experience will be replicated in this new digital reality. What are the implications of this future digitisation? How will humanity react?

Disruption / Decentralization:
In the industrial age, businesses like railroads and electric power companies grew large because centralizing allowed them to deliver improved services to their markets.
Now we’re seeing a paradigm shift fueled by technology-enabled de-centralization. Innovations like 3D printing, Internet of Things, smart watches, mobile technology and Tesla’s standalone battery to power a home or office – all allow us to de-couple from businesses.
These exciting – or scary – disruptions have vast implications for the future of your business. Are you ready?
The experts speak.
