ETHIC: Leveraging The Human Factor In the Age Of Artificial Intelligence and Accelerated Change.

Keynote Presentation

The landscape of contemporary industry is changing. We are living in a new world where the tectonic plates of culture are shifting faster than we can keep up. We have moved from the industrial age, to the information age, and now are entering the post-knowledge age. Acceleration at break-neck pace is the new normal. Some are calling this the age of machine learning, autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, Blockchain economy, robotics and/or mobile commerce.

The Future Of Work

McKinsey Global Institute estimates that by 2030 close to 30 percent of occupations in the U.S. will be automated and there would be a huge impact and dislocation as a result of these technologies. Uncertainty over the future can create anxiety and insecurity.

What Does It Mean To Be Human In The Age of AI?

Many people are asking, “What is the future of work? What impact will these new technologies have on skillsets, jobs and wages? If in the future autonomous systems and machines will be able to do many of the tasks humans do, what value will being human have in the future? In our pursuit of advanced technologies are we unintentionally losing our humanity in the process? What about ethics surrounding AI?

ETHIC: Timeless Attributes of Humanity

This poignant and inspirational keynote presentation walks listeners through a new ETHIC for a new world. This ETHIC unpacks the five unique attributes of what it is that makes us to be human. Dr. Christopher Meade shows how these human attributes are needed now more than ever in work, life and leadership. These human ingredients are the recipe for building not only a life that matters but a company that thrives.

ETHIC is timeless, concise, and simple manifesto. It is at the heart of what makes us fully human. ETHIC will never be able to be successuflly outsourced or automated successfully through technology alone. And leveraging being fully human in an age of accelerated automation will be a competitive advantage. We are most fully alive when we tap into what makes us most fully human.

ETHIC: A new kind of ethic for a new kind of world.
