The Metaverse, AR & VR, Skills, Talent and Human Resources: The next 10 years
The Futures Agency (Switzerland)
There is no doubt that virtual reality is a great tool for training and learning, communication and commerce – at the same time, meaningful human relationships and experiences still very much require a physical presence. What can we expect in the next 10 years, as devices become faster, cheaper and smarter – and as humans will increasingly augment themselves? Will we need to protect what makes us human, in this hyper-connected world? What will be the most sought-after talents and traits in the future? Learning objectives include:
- Technology is exponential but humans are not: Always keep the human in the loop!
- Embrace technology but don’t become it: Keep a sceptical mindset but also an optimism of the will (and heart)
- The future is: “Awesome humans on top of amazing technology”
- Move up the food-chain and away from work that machines can do – beyond simple knowledge, towards understanding, wisdom, purpose
