In 2016, the first iteration of this session explored seven aspects of emergent and innovative technology. This rolling session will be an update on that—seeing what has emerged, what has strengthened, and what has fallen by the wayside. Participants will look to the future: What will impact organizational learning in a three- to five-year time frame? What should be on your agenda right now?

This session will explore the future of learning. A grand aspiration? Yes—this is a future-facing session for people who want to look not just at what is on their doorstep, but at the things they need to put in place to shape tomorrow. This year, the topics are: (1) wearables updated: beyond Glass, (2) trusted technologies: into blockchain, (3) beyond LMS: distributed systems, and (4) connecting expertise: expert currency systems. This session is intended as a glimpse into the future; it will also be participative, as no one has all the answers.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Not to consider specific technologies, but rather categories of technology and the ways they’ll transform learning
  • About the impact of wearables on performance
  • About AI and its impact on knowledge
  • About the impact of collaborative platforms upon knowledge itself


Designers, developers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.).

Technology discussed in this session:

Wearables: Glass to Oculus, watches to phones. AI platforms, specifically a research project out of SRI, as well as some of the bots focused on storytelling/captioning activities (photo analysis, etc.).
