Autonomous Everything: Ai, the Future, and What We Can Do About It

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • The robots are coming — not to steal your job, but to invent entirely new ones. Recent advances in artificial intelligence such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT coupled with automation point toward an increasingly autonomous world in which agency and personality is embedded in thinking machines. Autonomy will not only transform how and why we work, but also how we think, discover, decide, and even deceive ourselves. What we imagine and produce — along with how we sell it — will take strange new twists and turns as AI increasingly predict, suggest and convince us do it. In this wide-ranging and eye-opening talk on the promise and perils of cutting-edge AI, author and futurist Greg Lindsay explores how autonomy is already upending society, and what we can learn from organizations such as NATO, the U.S. military, and the Secret Service about what to do about it.

Testimonials

I had the pleasure – and disadvantage! – of following Greg as a speaker at a conference devoted to the future of work in May. His presentation was sharp, incisive, and provocative – so much so that I immediately booked him to speak at my own event in New York next year. I can’t wait to hear what he comes up with next.

Worktech/Unwired Ventures

Greg has never let me down. He is without doubt my go-to-moderator for an entertaining and informative panel discussion! His prep work with the speakers and about the topic and audience is efficient and effective which on the day results in a rich discussion around the room, not just on stage. Thank you Greg!
