In this mega session, delivered at the Society of Women Engineers November 2019 event in Anaheim, CA, futurist Shara Evans talks about how technology will impact jobs, security, and privacy as well as providing incredible business opportunities to commercialize these concepts into innovative new products and services. Shara will explore big picture items such as what will it mean to be human in the age of pervasive technology.
Topics covered in this speech include smart cities, future modes of transport, space travel, artificial intelligence (in its many forms), examples of jobs of the future, and the future of humanity - including brain implants, stem cell therapies, nanobots, and genetic engineering - along with the many new jobs and challenges that will emerge as we adopt these technologies.
