9:00am - 9:30am - NFT = WTF?
This period in time has shown that more people are becoming connected to themselves and to the world and we are not just thumbing through life. The fragility of connection was proven as the world shut down in just 5 weeks in 2020 and everything we have learnt is up for grabs. The emerging Web 3 will prove there is no better time to be a creative. Or is there? Let's cut through the hype and answer the fundamentals before we all feel like we are revisiting the hysteria of Web 2 back in 1999. Particularly given we are quickly evolving to include other senses that aren’t limited to AR, VR, MR, or RR. So how are we going to adapt and reinvent in a world of transparent interfaces? A place where sight is now joined with sound and motion? Welcome to hearable, feelable and wearable technology—powered by data, intelligence, sensors and more, powered and owned by the people. How does this impact consumer behavior and ensure technology makes us more human and how is it that possible with the rate of change in technology? Get enlightened by a meaningful and insightful look at what’s next on the digital journey roadmap.
