Dell EMC Word closing keynote (Part 2): Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly is the founding executive editor of Wired magazine. Kelly is a visionary author with several New York Times best-sellers, including, “The Inevitable, Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future.”

Kevin Kelly has a different perspective on innovation and where we go as a society. To think about the future, Kevin Kelly proposes to ask questions that leverage a good answer but also spark other questions to help expand our knowledge. In this session, Kevin Kelly uses these 4 questions to answer what will happen in the future:

1. What would you do if you had 1,000 minds working for you 24/7? Artificial power and intelligence makes it possible!

2. What makes great experiences? Virtual reality or Internet of experiences open a new era where experiences become the new currency

3. What can be accessed rather than owned? Gain access to a product or a service then you can give it back; this is preferred over ownership. We are transitioning from products to services.

4. What can you do with a billion people simultaneously in real time? With examples like Facebook and Wikipedia, we realize that sharing, collaboration, cooperation, and social platforms are key for our future.

The greatest products of the next 20 years have not been invented yet. You’re not late to innovate!
