The Future Demands Unlearning

When it comes to future-proofing your business Global Futurist Jack Uldrich advises, “To change the game, you need to experiment and take risks. And when those experiments and efforts don’t pan out, start unlearning from your mistakes and keep moving forward. It’s better to stumble forward than not move at all!”

Uldrich regularly speaks to a broad array audiences, from healthcare professionals, and educators, to government officials and manufacturers. His topics range greatly, but almost always include the top 10 future trends, which include things like the Internet of Things, Nanotechnology, wearable technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI.)  

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is like the Industrial Revolution on steroids. It is poised to transform virtually every industry on a scale that will leave many people breathless.

Futurist and Keynote Speaker

“AI,” says Uldrich, “is like the Industrial Revolution on steroids. It is poised to transform virtually every industry on a scale that will leave many people breathless.”

The disruptive nature of technologies like AI is in Uldrich’s opinion “an excellent opportunity for unlearning.” And unlearning happens to be an area Uldrich in which specializes. He is the author of Higher Unlearning: 39 Post-Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future.

In the book, he states among other things, “What you do know is more likely kill you than what you don’t know, following the money can cause you to lose money, zoning out is preferable to zoning in, and that ignorance lies at the heart of wisdom.”

This month he will deliver five keynote speeches as well as several workshops on unlearning across the US.

His itinerary for the month includes:

May 8, 2017, Future Trends in E-Commerce and Retail  • eBay  •  San Jose, CA

May 11,  2017, Future Trends in Telecommunications  • North Dakota Telephone Association  •  Fargo, ND
