Exponential Technology & Leadership

by Ryan Weber | at MinneBar 13 | 3:00 – 3:50 in Theater | View Schedule

There are possibly 20 technologies that have the potential to disrupt as much as the internet and mobile did over the next 20 years. The future is up to us to define but these are a few bold predictions being made by futurists/innovators: a. a colony on the moon b. 80%+ of world energy consumed using clean energy c. 95%+ autonomous, electric vehicles d. the majority of the known 30,000 diseases will be cured e. 41% of jobs in Minnesota today will no longer exist

Humans evolved based on a linear way of thinking and so it's difficult for most to imagine the impact that will come along with each of these technologies. I graduated from Singularity's Executive Program, in Mountain View CA, in January and plan to share a brief summary of key takeaways in this session:

  1. Intro To Exponentials
  2. Inventory Of Exponential Technology
  3. Tools For Being An Exponential Leader
