Last year, we talked about the future of work and how we’re planning to use the 4Front platform to address questions surrounding the evolution of technology in the workplace. Today, let’s think about the impact of evolving and future technologies on our lives outside of work.
At 4Front, we’ll have a whole track dedicated to this topic, called “Live,” so if you’re interested in the future of healthcare, biotech, transportation, city planning, climate, shopping, IoT, security, smart homes and more, be sure to clear your calendars for June 23–24, 2020. This event will be held in Denver, Colorado, and it will be the premier destination for getting an unbiased, 360-degree look at the impact of future innovation on all aspects of our lives, regardless of industry.
What We’ll Talk About
The “Live” track encompasses a great variety of industries and technical solutions to all kinds of human problems inside and outside the home. Smart homes will make life a little less hectic. Self-driving cars will safely get us from point A to point B. Biohacking technologies will help eradicate chronic diseases. The list goes on. Our goal at 4Front will be to take a look at all these innovations through the lens of one single future and accelerate progress by sharing information and addressing common challenges such as digital security, safety, sustainability and networking requirements.
Here are just some of the topics we’ll discuss:
Biohacking: Upgrade your Brain, Body and Human Nature
Speakers: Mirela Alistar, David Ishee, Aubrey de Grey
How can we be healthier, happier, stronger and live longer? Biohacking is the science (and art) of upgrading ourselves by controlling the environment inside and around us so that we have full control over our own biology. Some biohackers are doctors, some are PhD’s, some are complete amateurs, and their ways of trying to hack our bodies and biology are as diverse as they are. Join Aubrey de Grey, English author and gerentologist, Dr. Mirela Alistar, Professor at CU Boulder and dog breeder David Ishee to explore the future of biohacking.
What and How Will We Eat?
Speakers: Alyssa Whitcraft
You’ve heard of genetically engineered foods, the impact of agriculture on climate change and the fact that food is scarce for our most vulnerable populations but abundant for the privileged. Those who feed us are already pondering the future of food, considering bold ideas–from trying new methods of growing food, adapting to new demands in consumer preferences and making food sources more sustainable–to better feed massive populations. Join this panel to hear how leaders in the industry are resolving some of the greatest challenges inherent in nourishing our communities.
The Tipping Point: Quantum
Speakers: Shohini Ghose
If quantum isn’t part of your strategic plan in 2020, you’re already behind. Can quantum enable safe transfers of data, breakthroughs in cybersecurity, drug development and financial modeling? Moderated by Shohini Ghose, president of the Canadian Association of Physicists, co-editor in chief of the Canadian Journal of Physics, and the director of the Laurier Centre for Women in Science, this panel will discuss the latest benefits, threats and opportunities in quantum and how it will affect your business strategies.
