K D Adamson, Futurist & CEO, Futurenautics Group

K D Adamson, Futurist & CEO, Futurenautics Futurist K D Adamson identifies how the combinatorial effects of a range of exponentially growing technologies, global megatrends and new generational mindsets will transform our lives radically in the coming decades. More than an new industrial or machine age, she argues that we are entering the 'e‐naissance' ‐ the second Renaissance and the dawn of the exponential age, and offers a visionary perspective on its impact at both a global and individual level.

From the future of work, intelligent transportation, business, healthcare, education, government and regulation, to resource scarcity, privacy, AI, blockchain, cyber security, connectivity and transparency, she creates a frame of reference for how the e‐naissance will change the lives and expectations of human beings, whilst equipping them with the information, insight and appetite to fully participate in its development.
