About this talk

In this keynote from the AI Summit New York 2018, Rich Karlgaard, publisher at Forbes and best-selling author, talks about the power of AI to remake traditional industries. He opens with a prediction from John Chambers, former executive chairman and CEO of Cisco, who believes that 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies will fail in five years. "Forty percent of you are working for companies that are going to hit an inflection point, and you're going to come up with the wrong answer - or no answer at all," Karlgaard warned the audience. "I speak with authority here, because that's what happened to Forbes." Obviously, the publication didn't go anywhere - it was saved by an injection of venture capital. The session takes a look at the pace of technological change and its impact on the economy and the rate of investment. ---- With flagship shows in San Francisco, London, New York, Munich, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Cape Town, 2020 will see over 30,000 delegates from businesses globally joining the AI revolution through The AI Summit events.
