Angelo Robles: Good afternoon, everyone. This is Angelo Robles at Family Office Association. Thank you for joining us today for our FOA audio podcast. We are here today with Vivek Wadhwa. I’ve really looked forward to this audio podcast. I’ve been a huge fan of Vivek for many, many years. I’m an avid reader as soon as they come out, of his blogs. And I suggest that towards the end of the discussion we’ll give how you could learn a little bit about that as well and sign up!
Vivek Wadhwa is a Fellow at the Rock Center for Corporate Governance at Stanford University and also at the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke, where he’s a Director of Research. He’s a prolific writer, but more important than that, an amazing deep thinker about areas that I’m sure as we start to discuss them today, are going to be eye opening for many of you. So we’re really excited. Vivek, thank you for joining us.
Vivek Wadhwa: Angelo, thank you for having me.
Angelo: Thank you, the pleasure is all mine. Let’s get right to it: jobless future saving man-kind, ethics of gene editing, the disruption of industries. Let me start with a quote of yours and if you could expand, please. “Most industry leaders will not likely exist in 10 years. Exponential technologies will cause practically every industry, including finance, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, real estate, transportation, education, IT services, and communications to be disrupted over the next decade.”
Wow, that’s quite a prediction in not that long a period of time. It sounds like our world is going to be very, very different.
