Amy Webb is a “Futurist”. 

So much so that she is CEO of a trends forecasting and advisory firm called Future of Today Institute and presents to packed houses at events such as SXSW. Her term for the era we've just entered is a “supercycle of tech" driven by major innovations in the three converging areas of AI, biotech and connected devices.

"We're about to be surrounded by millions of sensors that are always on, also always on us," she said.

If you're a technology fan and love to see new innovations, buckle up because it's going to be a wild ride. And if you're NOT a technology fan and cringe at new innovations, you too might want to buckle up because the world is changing quickly.
