Did Hollywood Have It Right? #AR #VR #MR #ML #AI

Did Hollywood Have It Right?

This is a  question I ask during one of my keynotes.   I speak about emerging technology and the impact it is having now, the impact it will have in the future and what questions we need to be asking ourselves now.  

Let's take a look at just a few movies that brought us wonderful advances in personal technology that are now becoming a reality and why we can never go back.

Star Wars - Star Wars gave us Princess Laia as a hologram.  (1977) 41 years ago

Minority Report - Minority Report introduced us to Mixed Reality as we watched Tom Cruise manipulate and interact with digital information as he played detective in the future.  (2002) 16 years ago 

The Matrix and Ready Player One - Using Virtual Reality, these two introduced us to the possibility of escaping our flesh and blood, brick and mortar world to live in a virtual world where anything is possible and living beyond our earthly limitations. (2003 & 2018) 15 years ago and this year respectively

iRobot & Deux Ex Machina - These movies along with many others, introduced use to the human and moral side of Artificial Intelligence.  (2004 & 2006) 14 years ago and 12 years ago respectively

As we continue to build and enhance our ability to leverage technology, we are faced with some fascinating questions.

18 Questions we need to ask about Emerging Technology 

Holograms and Holographic technology
How do we get past the "smoke and mirrors" and implement into meaningful experiences?

Augmented & Mixed Reality
How will we incorporate this will Big Data & IoT?
How will it change learning in the classroom?
What happens when someone Augments your physical appearance without your permission?
What happens when someone puts digital assets on your physical property or person?

Virtual Reality 
How can we build virtual worlds to train and learn in safer environments?
What does the new "Real Estate" market look like?
Who owns the virtual world?
Should it be regulated?
What mental health issues may arise from people choosing to live in a virtual world?
Should we try to be someone else in a virtual world?

Artificial Intelligence
How do we leverage AI to help solve global problems?
Will AI increase or decrease our human intelligence?
Will AI divide our education system?
Can physical teachers and AI teachers work together?
What is the answer to keep AI under human control?
Should AI be regulated?
Who will benefit the most from AI?

In just the last few months I have sat down and worked with many companies around the world working through these questions.   As we face these new crossroads, what road will you take?

Please share your thoughts, answers and your own questions.
