February 9, 2018 11:13 pm |

The world has entered a new ‘information’ age and the pace of change means it is increasingly hard to predict the future. But Maurice Conti, chief innovation officer, Alpha, which is billed as Europe’s first moonshot factory, believes the future will revolve around ways in which the natural capabilities of humans are augmented by technology.

Speaking at the 2018 Cayman Alternative Investment Summit in a presentation called ‘Automation and artificial intelligence: a brave new world’, Conti argued that the reality of the future will not look as it may be portrayed in Hollywood movies – instead, technology will enhance the capabilities of human beings.
