The f(x) = e^x | The first TED Talks in VR
👋 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.

This agility is essential as ‘even when the world stops turning, logistics never stops’. Therefore, supply chains require speed, agility and flexibility to respond quickly to changes in demand, and the pandemic has shown that digitalisation has become a prerequisite for success.
