Keynote address by @ErOrange #GlobalSummit19 Day 1 #DigitalTransformation

@ErOrange postulating a multi-verse where the are multiple future states. The future is not linear and we can't think about it as this vs that. It's all of it. It's "Templosion" - the literal explosion of time in every direction #GlobalSummit19 Dr Who anyone?

@ErOrange advocating Augmented Intelligence where AI and human minds work jointly together. My favorite part: Life-long learning and forgetting (don‘t get stuck on outdated mindsets)! That‘s how my brain works: Learn, forget old now irrelevant stuff & move on! 👍 #GlobalSummit19

Every employee today has to be 2 things:

⏩ Be a technologist
⏩ Be able to establish trusted relationships
