The Jeju Development Institute brought me to Korea to address their 20th Anniversary event http://www.newsis.com/view/?id=NISX20170428_0014862691&cID=10813&pID=10800
While in Jeju, Governor Won of Jeju interviewed me for a two-part TV show about the future work/technology strategies to be broadcast in a few days http://www.ihalla.com/read.php3?aid=1493517482564414073
The Governor was an original member of the Korean Node when he was in Parliament in Seoul and is expected to be a successful presidential candidate in five or ten years. I recommended Jeju create an AI center for R&D and training, that might create a relationship with Elon Musk’s new NeuraLink Company to create a brain-AI interface he calls neural lace. The Governor liked the idea and appointed Youngsook as an advisor on the project. Governor Won has already signed an agreement with Tesla Motors.
While in Jeju I met with Benjamin Butler, founder of Emerging Future Institute (Hong Kong) at the recommendation of Puruesh Chaudhary (Pakistan Node Chair) and Youngsook Park (Korean Node Chair) who attended a recent meeting on Asia futures held in South Korea. They discussed an Asia regional organization much like RIBER and FEN. Benjamin also expressed interest in creating the Hong Kong Node and maybe one in Singapore as well.
Then back to Seoul for a talk on future work/tech 2050 and the second Future Work/Tech Workshop, all organized by Youngsook Park
