    Foresight 2020: The Twelve Trends Transforming The World Of Tomorrow, Today

    Keynote Speaker: Jack Uldrich jack-uldrich-3-copy The next decade is less than a handful of years away. What might the world of agriculture like look like in the year 2020? How will you and your business have changed? More importantly, how will you and your organization need to change? The answer, in two short words, is: a lot! Consider this: Eight years ago precision agriculture, drones, gene sequencing, “The Internet of Things” and cloud computing were all still in their infancy. Now, fast forward a few years into the future and try to comprehend how accelerating advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, the microbiome, renewable energies, gene editing and “Big Data” will continue to drive seismic change and deliver paradigm-shattering transformation to nearly every facet of farming. It’s not easy. In this engaging and entertaining keynote presentation based on his book (Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow), globally renowned futurist and best-selling author Jack Uldrich takes the guess-work out of understanding the near future by providing an in-depth exploration of how 12 technological trends will transform the world of 2020 – with a specific emphasis on the wheat industry.
