Additionally in the coming year virtual reality will step out of the shadows and into the mainstream. We have entered the Generative Machine Age.

In his first talk at CRF’s 8th International Conference, Carsten Sørensen takes us through the three machine ages and the technologies that emerged during those times, as well as what it means for our future.

Strategic thinkers tend to notice the unexpected sooner because they have a more prepared mind - we can too if we do scenario planning and develop a memory for the future.
