“We have a new vocabulary! Self-driving cars, 3d printing, crowdfunding, the sharing economy, swarm-bots, smart dust, vertical farms, Internet of Things, cognitive navigation, smart factories, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, quantum computing, intelligent farms, smart clothing! What was science fiction just a few short years ago is a reality as time compresses and the future accelerates!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
Some folks have recently asked, ‘how do I come up with the idea as towhat to post each day?” Each picture has a story, and so I will start to explain that once I post the picture!
For many events, I’m booked as a futurist to come in and explain the new world that people are discovering all around them. We’re inundated with change, often found in new words and praises. That was the inspiration for todays’ stage quote.
This was the subject of a blog post, Your new vocabulary for 2017. Words and phrases like smart buildings, robotic hype cycles, scientific exponentiation, virtualized hospitals, intelligent infrastructure, connected energy and more.
Each of these phrases signifies a trend, and each trend has disruptive challenge and transformational opportunity. In many cases, putting these trends into perspective is the core of one of my keynotes, such as in my keynote: The Jetsons’ Have Arrived 50 Years Early: What are YOU Going to Do About It?
