The Future Does Not Need to be Predicted Presented by Peter Coffee


Peter Coffee, VP of Strategic Research at Salesforce, designed the logo for his team with the motto: "We don't predict. We reveal."

He discusses:

The implications of the exponential growth of our capacity to connect everywhere, with everything.

Corresponding growth in computational power to find insight in all of that data.

Impacts on privacy, litigatory, discovery, financial and healthcare regulation, liability law and other domains in a data and AI-rich world.

The role of machine intelligence in augmenting people, not replacing them.
