Your j ob doesn’t ex­ist yet

We may not even have jobs when the AI over­lords take over. So your best skill to learn and teach your kids is adapt­abil­ity (and how to hack).

New Zealand is a world leader in in­no­va­tion and IP de­vel­op­ment

We are an in­sanely smart and tena­cious bunch. Our roots are mak­ing shit work with noth­ing. When tech­nol­ogy and the tools we can use make any­thing pos­si­ble, what the world will want most are peo­ple who can dream, de­sign and turn things into a re­al­ity from a vague idea.

We will be tri­alling a new po­lit­i­cal sys­tem

It will have less weight of peo­ple due to AI and will be more con­nected to the in­di­vid­ual voter and it will prob­a­bly use blockchain. I am mak­ing this up, but we are good at world firsts and I back New Zealand to try some­thing new.

The way we learn will be rad­i­cally dif­fer­ent

We will have taken those bold leaps, learn­ing will hap­pen every­where, each kid will have a per­sonal vir­tual tu­tor and schools will be­come vi­brant places where the com­mu­nity come to­gether to cel­e­brate our chil­dren, not places where we lock up kids for six hours a day.

We wil l have l ost our ob­ses­sion with small screens i n our hand

Voice, thought and sen­ti­ment pre­dict­ing AI will be the new UI. In fact, tech­nol­ogy will be in­te­grated into ev­ery­thing and at the same time be al­most in­vis­i­ble.
