Trends 2030

INSPIRING LECTURE

Trends 2030
Tomorrow’s world is just around the corner, with robots performing repetitive and predictable tasks, and sensors and cameras representing the digital feelers of our world. Self-learning algorithms will intervene on time and offer the best solutions at astonishing speeds. But will we be safe? Will we not be outsmarted by cybercriminals? The acceleration of ‘smartification’ has begun. Are you prepared?

This futurist has chips in his body​

“You can’t really talk about the future without also being part of it”, says Richard van Hooijdonk. So he put his money where his mouth is. To date, he’s had several RFID chips injected into his body that perform various tasks for him. Van Hooijdonk is planning to have a number of additional chips implanted in 2020 and 2021.

The future of healthcare

INSPIRING LECTURE

The future of healthcare

Technological developments in healthcare are taking place at breakneck speed. Think telemedicine, wearables, brain implants that eliminate the effects of epilepsy and Alzheimer’s and bioprinters that print organs. In the future, we’ll swallow an electronic pill that keeps our health in check. Our personalised medication will be 3D-printed at home. Surgeries will be performed by robots, and we’ll even be able to ‘cut’ genetic diseases from our DNA. And best of all – that future is already here!

INSPIRING LECTURE

The future of work

INSPIRING LECTURE

The future of work
Repetitive and simple tasks are steadily being taken over by automation. This means we also need to rethink our roles and develop new skills. How do we get the employee of the future on board and how do we change people and organisations? What will our jobs – and work in general – look like in the future? New work models are emerging and we’re increasingly moving towards quantified workplaces where our performance is meticulously measured and existing hierarchies are up for discussion. In the future, 21st-century skills will be indispensable, and we will slowly but surely transition from permanent employment contracts to the gig economy.

The future of crime and security

Technological progress can take us very far, but the threats that go with it are serious. Who would have thought that drones and 4D printers could be used for criminal purposes? Or that hacking hospitals and medical devices would become a business model for hackers? Or that someone may one day be able to print the successor to the coronavirus?
