Ayesha Khanna is featured by Corriere della Sera, one of Italy's leading newspapers, on her work in artificial intelligence, and on humanity’s hybrid future. "The era of hybrid reality is upon us: the word of the futurist Ayesha Khanna. The woman, head of one of the most important Asian artificial intelligence companies talked about the trends of the future, the technological dependence and her dual role of mother and entrepreneur."
At the Singapore Writers Festival, Mrs Khanna will speak on a panel on "The Future Of Work", together with social entrepreneur and Nominated Member of Parliament Kuik Shiao-Yin as well as Future-Moves Group CEO Devadas Krishnadas. Mrs Khanna describes the future worker as a "tech-literate, creative thinker adept at cross-cultural collaboration".
The industries of the future will require people creative and innovative enough to work with technology, not be replaced by it. And workers will need resilience and grit, because failure, more often than not, is part of the innovation process. Externships lie precisely at the intersection of play and rigor, which is where innovation thrives.
As the Founder of coding school ’21C Girls’ and upskilling hub ‘The Keys Academy’, this education expert is helping spawn the next generation of tech-minded Millennials. "The future belongs to those who embody both the qualities of homo sapiens, man who knows; and homo faber, man who makes. In my mind, that is the definition of a smart citizen in a smart nation.”
The industries of the future require students to be innovative and creative and to have resilience and grit, as innovations demand tinkering, and failure is, more often than not, a natural step before success. Externships are a new model for providing the intersection of rigor and play where innovation thrives.
In the inaugural episode of Channel News Asia’s “Future Forward” series, host Asha Gill speaks with experts on architecture, urban planning, and technology to explore some of the leading “smart city” strategies around the world, especially Singapore.
How can we reignite passion and enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering and math amongst tomorrow’s workforce? GE Reports speaks to Ayesha Khanna about how to re-engage young Australians in STEM.
The increasing ability of people to exchange goods, services, and labor directly, via online platforms, is transforming how modern economies operate. Smart regulation will bring out the best of the “sharing economy”.
The shareconomy is a highly efficient form of peer-to-peer capitalism, which lets participants mutually determine the value of goods and services on a transactional basis. But it is also chaotic, fraught with consequences that require a rapid evolution in regulations.
Tech giants like Google, Microsoft, Apple and Facebook are winning the war for talent and Silicon Valley office space, encouraging start-ups to go on a global hunt for a new heartland. In Asia, Singapore wants to be the answer.
THE most effective digital learning model for colleges is the flip teaching model. This involves students receiving instruction at home through online lectures, and doing homework in class where the teacher can mentor them.
According to the Oxford Dictionary, the word "security" means the "state of being free from danger or threat". But threats in the 21st century are complex and the perpetrators involved are not the usual suspects.
Many think technology in education means teaching students to search the Web for answers or teaching pre-schoolers how to use the computer mouse. Instead, children need to be taught how technology works, not merely how to use today’s tools.
Great cities will be increasingly distinguished by their capacity to produce inclusive, sustainable and innovative outcomes. These cities will be driven by empowered citizens, ubiquitous technologies and policies that enable the actors to redefine the way we work, live and play.
Disruptive technologies are shattering the notion of a stable career. The 19th-century model of education, which consists of a linear accumulation of credits from elementary school to university, can no longer guarantee success in the 21st century.
Asia’s infrastructure needs – in areas like power, transportation, housing, sanitation and water – will require US$8 trillion (S$9.83 trillion) of investment within the next decade, says the Asian Development Bank.
In their new e-book, “Hybrid Reality,” the couple argue that the burgeoning forces of worldwide connectedness and shared innovation will open opportunities to all who understand and embrace them.
If technology drives economics -- rather than the reverse -- then we should elevate the notion of geo-technology above that of geopolitics and geo-economics as well. China's superpower rise is directly attributable to its technological strategy of dominating low-cost manufacturing.
