FROM SCARCITY
TO ABUNDANCE

Changing the mindset

Our minds and socioeconomic systems are historically wired to manage and overcome scarcity. Exponential technologies, such as artificial intelligence, the internet of everything, 3D printing and digital biology, are moving our world from an age of scarcity to a new and unknown era of abundance.​

Earth
in abundance

As we enter this new era, we have the opportunity to change the earth for the better by providing enough food, water, and energy for everyone, and above all, by bringing peace to the world. What if we won’t need to worry anymore for the basic needs that sustain humanity?

CITIES
in abundance

For decades we have been living in the busiest cities ever created. We must change our mindset to leverage the exponential technologies that will let us breakdown old and new barriers to transform our cities into inclusive, sustainable and safe spaces for humankind.

Humans
in abundance

Technology is not only guiding us and extending our existence, but also it is improving the way we live and co-exist. Using technology to expand human capacity will change the way we live, help us understand ourselves better and ideally bring more harmony to the communities in which we live.

Our awesome people

The mind-openers who will help us delve into our future.

Earth in a world of abundance

Energy is the world’s biggest industry, with about $6 trillion per year spent on it. And it’s about to be transformed beyond recognition. Clean energy technologies, including solar, wind, and batteries, are plunging in price around the world, reaching the point where it’s cheaper to build new clean energy than to operate existing fossil fuel infrastructure. Across the world, governments, businesses and individuals are facing immense change, threats, and opportunities in this economic tipping point. As this revolution progresses, organizations that don’t keep up will find themselves on the wrong side of innovation, as new technologies make clean energy more affordable than the old fuels. Nimble organizations will profit. In this presentation, Ramez Naam presents a high-paced, data-driven overview of the changes taking place in the energy market and how organizations can invest now to capitalize on opportunities later. Naam argues that this revolution will ultimately benefit the world due to the positive effects on climate change and the environment but cautions that entire industries will be disrupted – and some destroyed – in the process. Now is the time for every company that depends on cheap, reliable energy for its operations to plan for the future, divest from the old and commit the new before it’s too late.

To meet our evolving and more enlightened values in how we grow our food in the face of diminishing freshwater and land resources, a changing global climate, and a world whose population will reach 9.7 billion by mid-century -- virtually adding another China and another India to our current global population -- employing Artificial Intellgence (AI) in food production has become an all-important imperative. AI in food production, constituting a veritable locus or epicenter for the fourth industrial revolution, is being galvanized by the confluence of advances from various sources, including the achievements of NASA in bioregenerative space life support systems, breakthroughs in the plant sciences, achievements in sensors and lighting systems, and the rise in automation and robotics, among others. Global cooperation is needed in applying AI in food production to maximize its benefits and avert any unintended consequnces.

Purpose is the buzzword of the moment, with billion-dollar purpose-driven brands like Tesla, Patagonia and Airbnb leading the cultural revolution around business as a force for good.

But what is brand purpose? What are some of the myths and misconceptions around it? How can older companies reverse-engineer it into their DNA in an authentic and meaningful way? And how can leaders harness its power in order to create compelling brand propositions for a new generation of socially-aware consumers - as well as attracting the best employee talent who want to do meaningful work?

In this illuminating talk, Afdhel Aziz shares examples of brands from Starbucks, Facebook, Tesla, Patagonia and many others to help introduce the topic in a clear and insightful way.

Whistler Conference Centre Grand Foyer

After our first session you will have a lot to digest and what could be better to share your impressions with other attendees than a nice cup of coffee and some sweets.

Meet us at the WCC Foyer for a good coffee break.

Cities in a world of abundance

The entire transport sector is in flux. Multimodal trips and vehicle sharing, once imagined as fringe ways to travel, are increasingly easier, faster, and more convenient choices than last century's personal car paradigm. Innovation is being shaped by the wide spread adoption of smart phones, coupled with pressures brought on by urbanization, congestion, air pollution and climate change. Cities can no longer let the status quo play out and are becoming increasingly active shapers of what happens on their streets.

Cyber security is no longer about protecting secrets. It's about our way of life: from webcams medical devices, to the manipulation of political campaigns and global markets. Are you thinking about what's next? This talk will inspire the audience to take action about security challenges. We will shed light on emerging security threats, learn practical ways to build resilience - and see what we can learn from friendly hackers! We will discuss the future workforce and business challenges in this space and how to foster more diversity in cyber security, and forge a path to a more secure future, together.

Cities in a world of abundance

In this fast-paced talk, Brent will explore the burgeoning world of immersive entertainment. He’ll cover the current trends enabling this new medium, survey the best examples from around the world, and explore the powerful experiences still to come. As consumers move from passive to active participants there is a massive opportunity to re-imagine entertainment, health & wellness, food & beverage, training & learning, and more. This exciting domain is still in its nascent stages and for storytellers and technologists alike, the reward for engaging now is helping to define an entirely new category of how humans will be entertained, inspired and educated for years to come.

Humans in a world of abundance

People are living longer - no longer because of reduced child mortality, but because we are postponing the ill-health of old age. But we’ve seen nothing yet: regenerative medicine and other new medicines will eventually be so comprehensive that people will stay truly youthful however long they live, which means they may mostly live very long indeed. I will discuss both the biology and the sociology of what will be the most momentous advance in the history of civilisation.
