Futurist Jamie Metzl: How AI, Genetics, And Biotechnology Will Transform Our World

Jan 21, 2024

Victoria Theatre


The rapid growth of new AI systems like ChatGPT have made most people realize significant change is on the horizon. Just like the industrial and computer revolutions, the AI revolution will transform most every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Along with our new capabilities in genetics and biotechnology, it will change how we live and work, our economies, our healthcare, the foods we eat, and our interactions with the world around us. In this far-reaching and highly practical talk, leading futurist Jamie Metzl explores the big picture implications of this transformative moment in human history and what it means for all of us.

What do you get when you cross a magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Brown University, and JD from Harvard Law School with a PhD from Oxford? A visionary who can both reimagine the future and advise us on how to get there safely. Jamie writes syndicated columns on science, technology, health, politics, and international affairs, and is a frequent contributor to all the major TV news outlets. A 13-time Ironman, Jamie is also the founder and chair of the global social movement OneShared.World and has held high posts in the US National Security Council, State Department, and Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In addition to the nonfiction bestseller Hacking Darwin, Jamie is the author of three other books and a story, “A Visit to Weizenbaum,” which was made into the short film Source Code.
