Futurist, speaker, author, CEO of The Futures Agency and curator of the Leadership Summit at ITU Telecom World 2014, Gerd Leonhard presents his vision in a series of shows.
The Future Show (TFS) is a new web-TV show created and hosted by futurist Gerd Leonhard. TFS is the first web-TV show that explains the fast-paced world of technology to a general consumer and business audience in an irreverent, critical, engaging and exciting way. The TFS episodes are 4-7 minutes in duration and focus on topics that are relevant, impactful and of immediate interest to the curious consumer as well as to the global business professional who wants to stay ahead of the curve. Engaged consumers and curious professionals, the millennial generation as well as the so-called digital immigrants and foresight-minded business and civic leaders will enjoy TFS without necessarily having to be experts, geeks or early adopters.
Subject matters include how quickly and irreversibly technology is changing our lives, our jobs, our culture and our economies as well as the overall way we conduct business, how the future (personally and societally) will be impacted by what Gerd Leonhard calls ‘total digitisation’ i.e. by ubiquitous connectivity and powerful yet low-cost electronic devices, and what it will mean to ‘be human’ in such a fully-digital society. Some of the episodes will discuss privacy and surveillance, so-called big data, artificial intelligence, robots and the rise of ultra-smart machines, the rise of sustainable capitalism, the future of knowledge and education, ‘digital obesity’ and information overload, ‘offline’ as a kind of new luxury and much more.
