What trends and technologies are shaping the future? How can you be prepared for life in the next twenty years? Step on the time machine and learn how to predict your future.

How might robotics or big data or artificial intelligence change our future? How often do you think about how our lives and careers might change in the next decade or beyond? Around thirty years ago, the internet was created. This has since went on to radically revolutionise all industries. From the way we shop, the way we communicate, how we are entertained, even down to how we find relationships. Innovation was critical to survive in the internet age. And it is about to happen again.

The fourth industrial revolution sees machines that can think for themselves, mass powerhouses of data which can make decisions better then we can and technologies such as cryptocurrency and virtual reality which could change the way we interact with the world all together. Whether you are in business, art, science, nursing or any industry…these changes make innovation vital for our future.

This session from the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group will help you become a time traveller explore exciting examples of how technology is being used today, and how it could benefit us tomorrow. We will look at whether the robots are coming for our jobs, and what future jobs might look like. We will share our predictions and encourage you to learn how to make your own. The session is free and open to all. We hope to open your mind to the exciting possibilities of the future, and encourage you to think about how you can be prepared for the next revolution.
