The global landscape is ever changing. Technological progress is faster than our ability to comply with it. In order to be at the forefront of these processes, I Am Future Foundation (IAMF) joins the creative forces that engages the world's top leaders in collaborative activities to shape the global, regional and industry agendas for a cohesive and sustainable world.
Edward Musinski, Chief Development Officer at IAMF, was present, in Davos, Switzerland, at the 50th anniversary of the Forum. Here are the main takeaways that should highlight the agenda of following years.
Climate Change. „Our house is still on fire”. The message of Greta Thunberg underlined the theme of this year’s Davos event. Science is considered to be key to finding solutions for a sustainable world and an effective response to climate change.
Artificial Intelligence. AI is in the process of transforming a variety of models in the global industry. While these models are welcome, they come with a variety of challenges that need to be addressed, including: the inclusion of developing countries in AI progress; sharing of AI benefits and focusing of the health benefits of AI.
Health. While life expectancy has risen to 72 years, in the next year we will see the rise in non-communicable diseases like cancer and diabetes, mental illnesses and an increase of the role of technology.
Inequality and uncertainty. As 2020 gets underway, the global economy is at a crossroads. Inequality between rich and poor countries is more and more evident. While 70% of the world population lives in countries where inequality and uncertainty has risen, the new generation of leaders will start to prioritize purpose over profit.
At Davos, IAMF presented a platform that promotes and consolidates health and longevity tech.
