Event Description:
featuring Raman Chitkara (Bio)
Global Technology Industry Leader


While technological innovation and disruption is a constant theme, every few decades we witness changes brought by a technology disruption that sets the stage for massive new opportunities while upending market leaders.  Now we’re on the brink of the next major disruption: artificial intelligence (AI). AI will bring new opportunities for all industries similar to how the Internet brought a wide range of new market opportunities in the 90s. AI also has the potential to coin new leaders in all industries. For companies that are early to recognize the revolutionary power of AI, the opportunities will be enormous.  
In order to best leverage the opportunities in an AI-dominated world, it is important to  understand and appreciate, how AI will shape our lives in the coming decades.

Technology is moving so quickly, and in so many directions, that it becomes challenging to pay attention – we are constantly on the lookout for the “next big thing.” While not all innovations are disruptive, still driving economic growth, disruptive technologies challenge and transform not only business models and the global economy, but life itself. 
Simply think of how smartphones largely replaced cell phones and PDAs and, because of the available apps, also disrupted: pocket cameras, MP3 players, calculators and GPS devices, among many others. For some mobile users, smartphones often replace laptops.
True market disruption happens when there is a confluence of multiple events, including seemingly unrelated technology advancements in adjacent industries, by emerging complementary aspects and market readiness for change. For example, artificial intelligence offers the opportunity to change the health of populations, from how individuals track symptoms and life expectancy, to the very nature of diagnostic, surgical, and hospital care, and the economics of health insurance.
Thus, any player, from any industry, can come in unexpectedly with a new business model, fueled by innovative technologies and ideas, and render everyone else obsolete. Therefore, companies need to operate in a state of hyper revolution with the inherent capacity and competency to evolve quickly. For companies and entrepreneurs, that means institutionalizing innovation. Empowering and appreciating employees for increased effectiveness. Having strategies to satisfy clients’ functional and emotional needs. Looking at all market players, even competitors, as potential partners in various levels of alliance.  Looking at technology as an increasing enabler of effective change. Constantly looking at new ways of thinking and acting.
Experts suggest that disruptive technology trends to watch for in 2017 include artificial intelligence, automation of everything (cars, finance, etc.), internet of everything, virtual reality, 3D printing, biometrics and digital ID, big data, healthcare, mobile workforce, and space exploration.
The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida (BACCF) will be at the forefront of disruptive technologies, by bringing experts to keep its members and the overall business community abreast of trends and innovative business practices.
