In this fast-paced session, get taken on a philosophical journey on how technology advances not only bring about good, but some will use those new capabilities for bad and for ugly. What are the realities? How does one prepare for the exponential and inevitable upward curve (J curve)? In this session the participant will have a better understanding of the trajectory the world of technology is on, challenge one's own perspectives and perhaps think of new ways in which one can prepare for those who seek to pervert positive and inevitable advances.

In this session, you will learn:
Profusion: more and more.
Trajectory: faster and faster. Advances are Irreversible and who would want to stop it?
Differentiation (J-Curve): more and more, faster and faster. What is meant for good is always exploited.
Strategies: Preparing for the bad and the ugly while promoting the good.
