SingularityU Canada Summit 2017 - Wrap Report

  1. 1. The SingularityU Canada Summit is the beginning of a new movement in Canada with a vision to inspire more Canadians to think BIG, take risks, and drive global impact. The summit is not an event. It is a testament of the power and diversity we have as Canadians to come together behind a shared sense of purpose and have strategic conversations about our collective future. More than 1,300 of the most senior and influential leaders of our country attended the Summit, accompanied by more than 6,000 Canadians who joined through satellite events across the country. The Founding Members of the movement are uncommon partners. They are organizations from both the public and the private sector, from different industries and across the country – all of whom came together – as equals – to bring this strategic content to more Canadians and inspire all of us to be more courageous. I would like to thank all of our Founding Members for their vision and commitment to bringing the movement to life. The SingularityU Canada Summit was the start of something big; something transformative. We look forward to working with you as together we continue to build the SingularityU community in Canada. Oren Berkovich CEO, SingularityU Canada Summit – This is Canada’s Moment 2

  44. 44. Peter H. Diamandis Intro to Exponentials & Road to Abundance Key Takeaways: Learn about the principles of exponential technologies, why they are important to grasp, and how they can be a positive force for change. Understand the 6D’s – a useful framework to help navigate the exponential journey that a digital technology takes. Develop an appetite for moonshot thinking and learn about the radical solutions that seem like the stuff of science fiction. Find plenty of reasons to be optimistic that abundance for all is within our grasp and soon we will be able to meet and exceed the basic needs of every man, woman, and child on the planet.

  45. 45. Salim Ismail Societal Implications of Abundance A brief overview of the social impact that an abundant future will have on our organizational, political, legal, educational, and medical systems. Key Takeaways: Bend your mind as we start thinking about the implications of exponential breakthroughs in both society and business. Begin to understand why it has never been so important yet so challenging to have a series of conversations about our future. Presentation Video 46 Play Video View Slides
  46. 46. Robert Steiner Intro to Citizenship Theme Presentation Video A brief introduction to the Global Grand Challenge of Citizenship and what this segment will cover. Get ready to look at how the concept of identity and citizenship is changing both the developing and developed world. 47 Play Video
  47. 47. Andreas M. Antonopolous Decentralized Power Presentation Video This session explores the true potential of decentralization and how the way we interact digitally will fundamentally change the hierarchical systems of today. Key Takeaways: Social institutions are based on 19th century models born from industrialization – hierarchy and bureaucracy – that don’t scale. The Internet has shown us ways to organize at a larger scale with flat and non-hierarchical networks (decentralized organization). Bitcoin and open blockchains extend that model of organization and add a model for trust at scale. Networks that scale allow us to organize more efficiently than bureaucratic institutions that don’t scale. Eventually, one replaces the other. Bitcoin is more than just money – it’s a new model for organizing trust 48 Play Video
  48. 48. Suzanne Gildert Should Robots Have Rights? Presentation Video This session will explore the concept of sentience. At what point does a robot or AI become a sentient being? What role will they play in our societies? We’ll take a lighthearted and interactive approach to tackling some of these deep and important questions. Key Takeaways: AGI (artificial general intelligence) is coming and there is nothing we can do to stop it. We need to stop worrying and turn fear into opportunity by looking at the ways in which AGI and robotics can make our civilization better. We have expanded our circle of empathy many times before to grant rights to different groups of people, animals, and even technologies. In hindsight these decisions seem obviously correct, even though they were highly controversial at the time. By introducing robotic rights we can expand our circle of empathy further to encompass beings who will ultimately help us to upgrade our civilization to the next level. Interacting with these beings and having them be an accepted part of our society will make us MORE human, not less. 49 Play Video View Slides
  49. 49. Debate: The Balance Between Privacy and Freedom Aran Hamilton (Moderator), Ann Cavoukian, Greg Wolfond, Assaf Mischari Presentation Video What is the cost of being connected and having unlimited access to information? Is sacrificing privacy a tradeoff to progress or an essential right we must protect? Let’s take an inward look and debate how we should balance transparency and security. Key Takeaways: While we live in the world where transparency is equated with honesty, we also live in a world where private information shared publicly can ruin a career, a marriage, a life. Hear different perspectives on the downsides of privacy and how transparency, in certain areas, can lead to positive transformation. With new and scary players using data and information maliciously, we need to balance our collective need for security with our personal desire for privacy. How do we personally select the battles worth fighting, the battles we can win? Consider what compromises you are making everyday to get the information and services you use everyday. Canada is one of the world leaders in the area of Digital Identity: policy, regulation, technology. How are private businesses and governments collaborating or should they be working together to maintain our basic rights? 50 Play Video

Intro to the Energy Theme 59 Play Video View Slides
  59. 59. Presentation Video Ramez Naam The exponential curve of energy technology and what that will mean to our economy and our world. Key Takeaways: The fossil fuel industry is being disrupted by innovation. The price of solar, wind, batteries, and electric vehicles have all plunged rapidly, and will continue to plunge. The coal industry is the first of the three fossil fuel industries to be affected – with disruption and bankruptcies occurring already. Oil is next on the horizon, with efficiency, automation, transport-as-a- service, and electrification all leading to peak oil demand in the next 10- 20 years. Declining oil demand will lead to low global oil prices, with enormous ramifications for oil-exporting nations (like Canada). Businesses and nations who ignore the energy transition stand to suffer drastic economic losses. Those who embrace it stand poised to reap a share in a multi-trillion dollar new market. The Future of Energy 60 Play Video View Slides
  60. 60. Presentation Video Sean Collins This session will explore how far away we are from energy abundance and why the reality of today is as important as the vision of the future. Key Takeaways: Energy is the mother of all tradeoffs. No decision in energy is purely black and white. Energy is both intensely emotional and somewhat irrational. With projects becoming more nuanced than ever, our attention spans have never been shorter. Living in a World of Energy Contradictions 61 Play Video View Slides
  61. 61. Presentation Video Josipa Petrunic One of the most impactful factors in energy transformation happens to also be one where Canada has some strategic choices to make. Key Takeaways Standardization of charging infrastructure for high-powered on route and depot charging is a crucial step for ubiquitous transit electrification. The integration of utilities with transit fleet managers in “energy systems teams” is needed to plan out transit electrification that utilizes energy storage with high-powered charging (the relationship between utilities and transit systems remains weak today, across Canada). The integration of both battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric transit vehicles is crucial for the full electrification of short-, medium-, and long-range routes across Canadian and global transit systems. The integration of “first mile, last mile” small, electrified mobility pods as feeders into mass transit hubs is critical to the shift towards low carbon mobility overall.

  63. 63. Presentation Video Ramez Naam, Tom Rand, Josipa Petrunic, Sean Collins, Diane Francis (Moderator) A strategic conversation and debate on how everything we know about energy is changing the future of Canada and impacting all of us. Key Takeaways: Canada is one of the world’s five biggest exporters of energy: oil, natural gas, electricity, uranium, coal. Canadian living standards are largely underpinned by this industry, with energy accounting for roughly 40% of total exports annually. It is critical for Canadians to understand the trajectory of disruption in all these commodities and figure out how to replace the economic activity and jobs they generate.

Key Takeaways: 20th century economic models were geared toward a zero- sum game – Exponential economics is not and is creating more redistributed value Blockchain mechanism enable both trust and settlement of payments Exponential technologies give companies and people the ability to engage in nano-economic relationships Humanity needs to strengthen its adaptability skill set. The good news is that it’s coachable! Corporation need a Chief Adaptability Officer to help the ride the exponential transformation Exonomics 66 Play Video View Slides
  66. 66. Presentation Video John Hagel The forces that are creating mounting performance pressure on the global business landscape and what organizations need to do to effectively respond to them. Key Takeaways: Exponential technology is creating mounting performance pressure as well as expanding opportunity. To harness the opportunity, we will have to shift from businesses driven by scalable efficiency to businesses driven by scalable learning. AI/robots will take over virtually all of the work we do in scalable efficiency businesses but will hopefully be a catalyst to help us re- think work in ways that tap into our unique capabilities as humans. There’s significant opportunity, but there are significant challenges for large, existing institutions – especially the powerful immune system and antibodies that exist within all of these institutions and that will mobilize to resist any efforts to transform.
