    Mike WalshMeet Mike Walsh CEO of Tomorrow, a global consultancy on designing business for the 21st century. He advises leaders on how to thrive in the current era of disruptive technological change. Mike’s best-selling book FUTURETAINMENT, was the winner of the design award by the Art Director’s Club in New York. His new book is the Dictionary of Dangerous Ideas 

    For uLearn18, Mike will be talking about how...

    We live in an age of wonder - cars that drive themselves, platforms that anticipate our needs, and robots capable of everything from advanced manufacturing to complex surgery. Automation, algorithms and AI will transform every facet of daily life, but will the next generation be prepared for the radical redesign of the workforce and the skills that will be needed to survive? While many fear that robots will take their jobs, the rise of machine intelligence begs a more important question: what is the true potential of human intelligence in the 21st century?

    In this Youtube clip, The future is now, Mike talks how digital devices are effecting our young people; the way they communicate, see the world, the way they frame reality, understand how they get their entertainment and content, and that we're only starting to understand the implications of this generations as they get older, join the workforce, become consumers and make decisions for themselves - they are going to expect very different things as customers and clients, the implications for the business world is huge. 

    But what about the implications for us as teachers and educators? If every one of our students' experiences is shaped by data and deep machine learning, what do WE need to do well, better, differently to help 'shape them' for the future?
