Across the economy start-ups are using machine learning to disrupt incumbents. At the same time, incumbents are using machine learning and artificial intelligence to automate processes and increase productivity. China is challenging the US for AI supremacy. Self-driving cars may soon over-turn a century-old model of urban transport and disrupt the car and oil industries. Digital platforms and challenger banks are using AI and data science to make inroads into financial services. Helped by AI and machine learning, other start-ups are harnessing renewable energy to re-imagine and refashion basic industries and are employing bio-tech to redesign how we get what we eat.  Coming rapidly closer is the threat of environmental breakdown.

In this talk Howard Covington will try to grasp some of these dramatic changes to our world and discuss how the opportunities they offer can be seized. ​
