Talks at Google video description: Mark Anderson is a predictions expert in the fields of technology and the economy. He is CEO of Strategic News Service, an online technology newsletter read by Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Elon Musk, Michael Dell, Jeff Bezos, and other leaders in technology and finance. He is also the founder of the Future in Review (FiRe) conference, named “the best technology conference in the world” by The Economist.
Mark discusses his history of studying and making predictions in a wide range of fields, from oil prices and popular holiday gifts to biochemistry and China, and he presents his latest thinking on Flow and Interaction, which he has come to view as the two fundamental elements of the universe, constantly at work, continually shaping every aspect of our lives. Flow: The movement of substances, data, information, ideas, or innovations over time. Interaction: The internal or external effect(s) of substances, data, information, ideas, or innovations as they travel over time, changing the original state of the flow. Mark shares examples of how those two actions drive everything from physics to economics, from biology to corporate success.
