Amy Webb is a quantitative futurist, author and professor at the Stern School of Business at the New York University. She is also the founder and CEO of the Future Today Institute. The Institute is globally respected and recognised for their annual Tech Trends Report, which is now in its twelfth year of publication.


During this episode, Amy explains the importance of strategic forecasting and she provides insight into the four characteristics generally shared by technology trends. We also discuss Amy’s claim that privacy is dead, and she explains the emergence of biometric camouflage. 


Amy then provides us with an in-depth explanation of how China utilises artificial intelligence. Her book, The Big Nine, is an investigation into artificial intelligence in nine major companies located across China and the United States.
