The Rise of the Humans: How to Outsmart the Digital Deluge

The rapid growth of internet-connected devices has brought huge advantages, however the same technology has also disconnected us. We are drowning in a digital deluge where the haze of information and devices vie for our attention to the point where they are beginning to remove us from the real world. Business leaders, meanwhile, worry that they might miss the next big technology trend and fail to realise the true potential of the big data wave.

In this session Dave will explore how the rapidly rising volume of information is affecting all aspects of our lives as individuals, as consumers and customers, as workers, and in business. He’ll look at the problems we face, and the mistakes and assumptions we make and how we should be using technology to reimagine how we live, work and do business.
