Rohit Talwar
Dancing in the Dark – The Future of Business

Tectonic shifts will reshape the business environment over the next decades – a reshaping of the economic landscape, evolving societal needs, disruptive innovation, transformational technologies, and fundamental questions about the role and purpose of tomorrow’s company. Rohit will review these forces and the implications for the strategies, business models and capabilities that will help us survive and thrive in a rapidly changing reality.

Gray Scott
The Simulated Reality Singularity

We are heading toward The Simulated Reality Singularity. A crunch in digitization. A state of pure digital reality that is indistinguishable from the reality that we see around us now. Every sensorial experience will be replicated in this new digital reality. What are the implications of this future digitization? How will humanity react?

Gerd Leonhard
Redefining the Relationship of Man and Machine

We are witnessing exponential progress in digitisation, automation, virtualisation and robotisation all around us, in all sectors of society, technology and business. “Software is eating the world” and it's getting smarter every single day. Artificial intelligence, deep learning and cognitive computing are becoming the next big memes, and many businesses don't know how to separate the hype from the likely-to-happen future. How will this play out in the next 5-8 years? What are the biggest opportunities, and what are the challenges we shouldn't ignore?

Fast Future Publishing
We publish the latest insights of established & emerging futurists, foresight researchers & future thinkers from around the world.
Fast Future Publishing is launching a regular series of books targeted at a business and generalist audience. Our goal is to profile the latest thinking of established and emerging futurists, foresight researchers and future thinkers from around the world. The books will be published in both print and digital format, with the first publication, The Future of Business, due for release at the start of June 2015.
We have created an innovative model that bypasses all of the traditional publishing channels - selling the print book directly from our own website. Profits are shared with the authors and core team working on the book. 10% of profits from the first book will be used to fund scholarships around the world for people wanting to take courses in foresight research and practice. Our entire publishing cycle from idea conception to publication is only four months.
We hope that our approach to publishing will in itself be an inspiring example of how business is evolving and being reinvented in the digital era.

The Club of Amsterdam is an independent, international, future-oriented think tank involved in channeling preferred futures. It involves those who dare to think out of the box and those who don't just talk about the future but actively participate in shaping outcomes.
We organize events, seminars and summits on relevant issues and publish findings & proceedings through various off-line and online media channels. Our goal is to become a global player and catalyst for innovation in industries, science and society.
