Next:Economy Summit 2016 - San Francisco, California: Video Compilation

Video description

For the first time in generations, many believe our children may be worse off than we are. Skeptics point to technology as the culprit, arguing that AI and robotics will destroy far more jobs than they create. Are the prospects really that dark for our children and grandchildren, our businesses and our economy, our cities and our way of life? No, says the remarkable collection of entrepreneurs, business leaders, policy makers, and technologists who gathered at the October 2016 Next: Economy Summit in San Francisco. This video compilation captures every thoughtful insight, artful analysis, and passionate prediction made at the conference by this stellar group as they chart a course toward a Next Economy offering—if we make the right choices—prosperity to all.

You’ll hear from 52 different speakers and get introduced to more than 40 Next Economy companies. A brief sampling of the speakers includes: Douglas Rushkoff, author of Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus; AirBnB CEO Brian Chesky; McKinsey Global Institute Director James Manyika; New Relic's Hilarie Koplow-McAdams; Niantic founder John Hanke; IBM CIO Jeff Smith; Uber’s Rachel Holt, and others. Some of the companies you’ll learn about include: Lola, a travel industry transformer using a "making humans cool again" AI approach; Zipline, a drone transport company that carries medicines to remote Rwandan locations; Grail, a genomics-computation leader developing cancer-detecting blood tests; Gigster, an on-demand software development platform; and Bonsai, the AI platform open to anyone.
