Futurist, Vito Di Bari, examines how every era sees one or two giant innovations that force entire industries to reinvent their products and services. For example, Edison's development of electricity set off a revolution in home appliances: iceboxes were replaced by refrigerators, wood-burning stoves by electric stoves, and charcoal irons by electric ones.
Rather than following the law of supply and demand, these game-changing innovations play by a different rule: the more people that have "it", the more "its" value increases.
What major innovation will alter the way we live and work in the next 10 to 20 years? Seamless web, Di Bari states. He predicts that by 2020, nanoprocessors will be in the majority of everyday objects, making them capable of understanding us and following our instructions. "That chair would be intelligent," he points to an empty seat. "If I want it to move to the back row, I can tell it and it will do it."
Di Bari bolsters his example with incredible video footage of laboratory tests that showcase the abilities of already existing smart objects.
Vito Di Bari’s visually immersive presentations are less like a speech and more like a show. The renowned futurist packs his keynotes with video footage and demonstrations of up-and-coming technologies that get people talking and rethinking their business strategy. Di Bari works across a wide range of sectors but always customizes his program to meet your organization’s needs.
Fully immersed in your industry and company, Vito will deliver insight into trends that will determine the future of you and your customers.
