Amy Webb, founder and quantitative futurist at The Future Today Institute, talks with Tonya Hall at ZDNet about blockchain, benevolent malware, AI, and mixed reality.
In spite of the vicissitudes and hype of cryptocurrencies, the potential for blockchain to benefit so many industries is irresistible.
Within the field of artificial intelligence, there is much to pay attention to. Facial computing is a branch of AI which shows great promise.
In terms of generally looking at future technology, Webb advises looking broader than your own industry.
The Future Today Institute researches emerging technologies at the fringes and tracks them as they move towards the mainstream. Their pioneering, data-driven forecasting methodology and tools enable organization leaders to make better decisions about the future.
