Amy Webb did it again. The name does not ring a bell? Well, it should. She is an American futurist, author and founder of the Future Today Institute. She is also professor of strategic foresight at New York University’s Stern School of Business, and was a 2014-15 Visiting Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. In my humble opinion, her Future today Institute produces probably the most accurate tech trends available.
This is the 12th year of her Tech Trends Report, this year’s edition highlights top trends in areas like energy, robotics, Artificial Intelligence, (Autonomous) Transportation, Mixed Reality, Genetic Editing, Blockchain, cybersecurity in trend breakdowns by industry, from banking to beauty. No worries, I attached the full presentation here. Enjoy.

Her keynote came right after the launch of her The Big Nine book earlier this week, where she sketched a nearby future being directed by the G-MAFIA (Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, IBM, and Amazon).
