Cesar Keller is a futurist, author, key note speaker and the CEO of WORKPLACE21, an AI-Powered HUMAN platform. He took part in one of the first academic teams developing AI in Brazil, and his mission was making a robot see and recognize objects. A complex task that would take a few decades to be done.

He changed gears and started focusing on understanding human sciences. Working internationally with Strategic Marketing was a good way to learn and explore. During that period he has helped large enterprises add up a few billions of dollars to their top line with innovative concepts and products, and more importantly, developing a good understanding of human behavior.

The expertise and experience developed in working with leading tech companies, allowed him to merge the fields of human sciences and technology and empowered him to become a futurist with a broader perspective including topics as economy, sociology, philosophy, and technology. His glimpses of what the future will look like are well known and his mission has been helping all of us understand what we have to do today, to build an equitable future, when all of us can thrive.

SXSW CONFERENCE & FESTIVALS | Photo by Cal Holman ​Anything that lasts more than 30 years, and yet keeps growing year on year, has to have deep roots in people's souls. Some critics have said the festival has lost its grass-roots' spirit from the early years. And undoubtedly, when you

Kimberly Unger, Interesting point of view from a technologist. In my opinion, we need to avoid the yay or nay on those technologies and focus on ruling where and when they would add value. Of course I am against the “big brother” scenario, but what if that call comes from a house with history of

(NON) HUMAN INTELLIGENCE
Collective Brains
December 08, 2018
We are living through the first stages of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Workers of all stripes, at all levels, stand to be replaced by machines— by artificial intelligence, in most cases, which is only beginning to have its impact. In years to come, lives will be disrupted. Jobs will be lost. But the news is not altogether bad. ​

(NON) HUMAN INTELLIGENCE shows how the changes to come can be leveraged in favor of the many and not the few. The revolution can be turned to our advantage. Chapter by chapter, the book walks us through how that can be done, with attention to the need for constant education, the rising importance of collective intelligence, and the changing face of leadership, among other things.

There is a great deal of potential in moments like this, when the old structures crumble and we must build something new. The new machines will threaten the status quo. But we must look always to the future. If we play our cards right, we can abandon the strictures of everyday labor in favor of rediscovering the best parts of being human. ​
