The Global Leaders Forum brought me to Seoul, Korea to speak about the future of work and the next economics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hmg4ryTkdvA The founder of Atari and other leaders in IT, AI, and Singularity thought leaders gave really excellent talks. I assume all the talks will be available eventually on their website: http://glfchosun.com/en/main/main.php .
The Millennium Project Korean Node Chair Youngsook Park was the key shaper of the conference. Instead of the Korean President giving the welcoming address (due to the current political situation), Ben Goertzel (Artificial General Intelligence expert) brought an AI/Robot from Hong Kong to welcome all in Korean and conducted a little dialogue with the AI/Robot after the welcoming address – quite entertaining and we think it may have been the first time an AI/Robot gave the welcoming address to a conference – see https://www.facebook.com/ed.lantz/videos/10154674222973905/
And a first for me was to give different talks in three continents (Asia, Latin America, and Europe) within a 24 hour period (obviously via live video for two of them). In addition to the talk in Seoul, I talked about future ways of doing science for the 8th World Conference of Scientific Youth held in Lima, Peru http://www.slideshare.net/JeromeGlenn/future-ways-of-doing-science-science-world-conf-of-scientific-youth-peru-2016 and another talk on some global economic and technological trends affecting future of energy for the Azerbaijan 2025-Look into the Future Conference for SABAH groups in cooperation with Azerbaijan State Azerbaijan State Oil and Industrial University, Azerbaijan Future Studies Society and Youth Foundation under the President of Azerbaijan. https://www.facebook.com/reyhan.huseynova.5/videos/10154857296354887/
