Keynote Speaker, Futurist & Humanist, Author, CEO The Futures Agency, Film-Maker
Gerd’s passions are the future of humanity, culture, society, and business in the face of exponential technological progress.
In a world dominated by technology, data and algorithms, robots and intelligent machines, what will it mean to be human? Are humans and machines really destined to ‘converge’? What do we need to do, today, to make sure that human happiness and collective flourishing remain the most important objectives? Is our current economic system suitable for a future were technology is virtually unlimited?
In his keynotes, talks, presentations, and seminars, Gerd addresses topics such as digital ethics (the ethics of technology), artificial intelligence (AI), the future of work and jobs, rebooting education, the digital transformation of business and society, the future of politics, and many more, focusing on the next 5-10 years. Gerd’s latest, best-selling book is » ‘Technology vs. Humanity‘, now available in 10+ languages.
