Business as usual is dead. Increasingly, science fiction is becoming science fact. Exponential technologies are rapidly changing our lives and societies, every day, everywhere. We will need different skills, and we will need to get much better at driving change - or we will be driven by it. Most importantly, we should embrace technology but not become it. Anything that can be digitized or automated, will be - and anything that cannot be digitized or automated will become extremely valuable. Lastly, we must go beyond technology to define real human values in this new digital ecosystem.

"everything is connected" - who may use it?
...respectively who is the one at the top, who may evaluate all datas, being faster, better, more effective, more rich, more organizied, ...to use it for his own interests?
To whom belongs all technologies, patents, science results? The investor?
May he command, what robots have to do, which stations trains arrive, how humans have to think and whom they serve? How they have to live ---- and if not, they are out?
then: No money, no pension, no health care, no car, no home ...1 child? > look China!
at last there will exist a big group of `ants`, without education, chips in brain and under the skin?
Which chance they ever would have to take part?
Where are the corresponding political and social movements?
I´m concerned about there is coming a new big dictatorship, controled by high technologies, ...òO´
Exceptional video! After 35 years as a Financial Advisor, I'm taking courses in Robo Investing, Blockchain, cyber-currencies and see that my field is changing super fast! Many other advisors are just retiring or are married to their old ways. NOT me! I'm just getting started with an excitement for our future ways and this video does describe so well my reality in stepping up to it right now!
Exactly so - truly excellent! Congrats on this contribution: it's the first clip on this subject I came across where I find myself in agreement along every statement during the four minutes. Again, great stuff, thank you.
I have to admit, the world of tech gadgets, widgets and geek stuff can be pretty unsettling
If one has isolated themselves in the old manual labor, elbow grease, push mower mindset. Kinda like the horse and buggy man seeing a car for the first time and thinking, 'Terror of terrors!' what is this alien contraption on the road for except mayhem...But we still have a choice nowdays to keep the values from the past that respected and safeguarded all, but still embrace the new and helpful devices that give us quick progress in our daily endeavors. Take it slowly, one concept or device at a time and then I think it won't be so overwhelming to go tech. Wade on in to the pool, here...https://goo.gl/g7gq1D
From my poin of view, these digital transformation motivation keys lead to empowers more people to be creative, or in another case it will.be more simple if "creative people has a bigger room to.move in every case"
Listen, there are two, kinds, of technophobes out there. One is the kind that avoids technology for his/her past, and one who avoids it for his/her future. The kind of future they see or more accurately, fear, is the Orwellian dystopic empire, where everything seen by big brother is eradicated as individuality. There is another future posssible! If you're bored then go theorize living in a POSITIVE and technological future! Embrace the technology but don't BECOME the technology! And there WILL be corporations that will promote their clients becoming the technology! The Borg, in star trek is a perfect example, of the futility that could become, our resistance, to the technocratic future were hurtling towards at ninety miles per inadvertent second...
Sorry to burst the human exceptualism bubble, but everything can and will be digitalised. If we do not keep integrating technology into ourselves, we will be left behind by our creations, if not destroyed by them.
That said, great job on the video! Very well done.

Does not show results at the moment.
In our approach we call it becoming a WOW organisation. The opposite to what customers normally experience when making contact with telcos or almost any service organisation out there. See our site www.biaj.tv
In order to transcend technology and truly connect humans, we need to rethink social media as well. Today, it seems we are governed by tech algorithms who prefer to put humans in a place of submission and stupidity, feeding us fake news and ad after ad. But there's a new idea. At Human Connection, we're developing a game-changing social, knowledge, and action network that's nonprofit (no data mining, no profit-driven algorithms) and serves the world. At Human Connection, the user is in charge of what they see in their news feeds. And new tools, functions, and an action button help promote positive social change, locally and globally. Take a look: https://human-connection.org/en/
This is a very emotional video that is showing me how important we are as humans and what are the things that only we can do. To go and get yourself ready and work on your skills is very good idea. Thank you for this inspiring and emotional video!!!
Change is such an essential element of the progress and evolution. Leading change is a necessary criteria for all seeking to be successful or remain successful in the here, now and future.
Be very cautious by saying creativity is a safe career for the future, because in many cases it isn't. AI systems can already create music indistinguishable from humans, and more competition with an ever lowering skill ceiling in many creative tasks (esp digital ones like game design & electronic music) will cripple these industries as well from an income standpoint.
hmmm not so sure about that. AIs can create music but it's just as bad and robotic as some humanly created tracks that just serve a placeholder function... like production music. People DO know the difference imho
This is a multi generational message delivered in 4 minutes as such it is pretty good. It competes with the Cognitive Dissonance that challenges our society and prevents us from seeing the future with AI, Machine Learning and free technology through different lens than the traditional view. It is a copernican level shift and thankfully there are people sharing and delivering the message on various forums using various mediums that appeal to the different generations, this is another such message (although it is 14 minutes... https://www.ted.com/talks/erik_brynjolfsson_the_key_to_growth_race_em_with_em_the_machines
I wonder if the statement "Even our bodies will be wired with sensors and will talk to each other" fails to effectively reflect the possible future that may result.
As a university trained health professional, we already recognise we currently enjoy a dynamic biological system that communicates within itself about itself.
So, does he mean to imply that we will be wired with non-biological non-intrinsic electronics to enable us to talk to other individuals? Is this a type of internally-worn smartphone? Also what would be the aim of the perpetual interactivity? Is controlled by the individual e.g. 'chatting' with others or is controlled by others and outside the individual's control e.g. sending 24/7 biological information say to doctors? Perhaps 'sensors' gives it away. Well perhaps some people will adopt this but I expect many will not.
Perhaps it is more accurate to assert that "Powerful entities with invested interests will push for our bodies to be wired with sensors to enable us to continually connect electronically with others".
Excellent video. As an educator, I've grown to understand this fact. However I find it difficult to convince some students, and even colleagues, of the urgency and repercussions of not appreciating this reality and adapting the needed mindset and implementation through action to capitalize on the significant opportunities that these challenges present.
Everyone just keep calm and relax because we all will be okay and remember technology is not making itself us humans is making it, so without us it is no future just the present and current.
Long story short, the transformation will be that no longer will the strong survive but only the smartest will survive.
Thank me later!
Good video. A fresh new way to tell us that actually everything has change / evolved / transformed ..... than us. Time for us to innovate our ourselves to drive new World rather than to survive in it. Good job man

Bravo, Gerd. Good enough is indeed dead. Technology-driven exponential change is already upsetting the workplace. The challenge now is to quickly update, upskill and uplift the workforce to learn new ways of working, abandon old habits, and practice a new workplace paradigm simultaneously with all others in the enterprise.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
