Exponential Technologies are accelerating faster than anyone could has ever imagined.
What happens as AI, robotics, and virtual reality crash into 3D printing, blockchain, and global gigabit networks? How will these convergences transform today’s biggest industries? How will this change the way we raise our kids, govern our nations, and care for our planet?
We will see more change and create greater wealth in the next 10 years, than we have in the past century.
During this gripping and insightful keynote, Diamandis outlines a road map to our near future, describing how wave after wave of exponentially accelerating technologies will impact both our daily lives and every company.
Diamandis will examine a number of key Meta-trends, as desired by the event, from among the following list of 10 Meta-Trends:
Power & Implications of Exponential Change Talk:
Today a company’s success depends on mindset, its use of exponential technologies and the power of crowdsourcing. This keynote, based on Diamandis’ bestselling book BOLD, examines the approaches required to succeed during this exponential age.
Where should a company be looking to grow 10x bigger, rather than 10-percent bigger? What does it take for a company to become an Exponential Organization? How do you become Uber rather than Kodak?
Diamandis explains how a Massively Transformative Purpose can drive your organization’s culture and help you attract the best employees. He examines the innovation principles used by GoogleX’, and the power of bold, “moonshot” thinking. He details how entrepreneurial billionaires like Larry Page, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson think — and what strategies they use to scale and disrupt.
Diamandis adds personal stories from his own moonshot companies: XPRIZE, which solves the world’s grand challenges through incentive competitions; Human Longevity Inc., which is transforming the healthcare industry and solving aging-related diseases; and Planetary Resources, which is making once-scarce resources abundant.

Diamandis is the New York Times bestselling author of “ABUNDANCE – The Future Is Better Than You Think” (#1 on Amazon, #2 on NYTimes). In this book, Diamandis shows us how technology is turning areas of scarcity into abundance. This bold, contrarian view, backed up by exhaustive research, introduces our near-term future, where exponentially growing technologies (AI, Robotics, Sensors, Networks, 3D Printing, SynBio, etc.) and the power of the crowd are converging to better the lives of billions.This keynote is an antidote to pessimism. Diamandis examines human need by category — water, food, energy, healthcare, education, communication and freedom — and shows the audience detailed evidence on the revolutionary improvements in these areas over the past century. He addresses how a range of exponential technologies are transforming what was once scarce into abundance. Humanity’s grandest challenge is providing abundance, and this keynote addresses how we rise to meet it.
As President Bill Clinton says, “Abundance shows us that while the headlines are really bad in the world today, the trend lines are pretty good. Extreme poverty is down. The health care is improving dramatically around the world. There are developments now which make me believe we might be able to do what we did in the 1990s, which is to use technological developments to create more jobs than we lose.”
