The f(x) = e^x | the future of AI
👋 Hi, I am Mark. I am a strategic futurist and innovation keynote speaker. I advise governments and enterprises on emerging technologies such as AI or the metaverse. My subscribers receive a free weekly newsletter on cutting-edge technology.

Good Day! This is my weekly newsletter, with a dose of insights into the future. The topic of this newsletter is the exponential times we live in, hence the title of f(x) = e^x, which is the (natural) exponential function.

You can visit The Digital Speaker to book me as a keynote speaker for your next event or to hire me as a future tech coach for your CEO. I have also published my trend predictions for 2022.

There is no doubt about the transformational impact of artificial intelligence on the economy, legal system, political system, and regulatory system; however, attaining all the benefits from AI at the global scale we are getting in today's age will have far-reaching implications for discussion and preparation.

Now more than ever, it's essential to learn about AI — and ensure you're ready for its inevitable impact on your industry. Here are five bold predictions about how AI will fundamentally alter our economy and society in the next decade.

Useful Nuggets of Information

My weekly tips from around the web to get you thinking.

1. Can we trust Meta's new Quest Pro?

Meta just released a new VR headset. It is interesting to see that as soon as a shiny new toy is launched, humans flock to it like lemmings, often without truly understanding what kind of toy they will bring into their house or office. 👀 In the case of Meta, we should be very worried and demand assurances that extremely private data will not be used for advertising purposes.

The Step into the Metaverse Podcast!

A few months ago, I published my fourth book, Step into the Metaverse, which is meant as a blueprint for an open metaverse. As part of this book, I did nearly 100 in-depth interviews with the stakeholders building the open metaverse. I have turned a selection of these interviews into a new podcast, called ‘Step into the Metaverse’ and the first two episodes are live now!
