Come hear futurist economist Toby Madden discuss how the Intelligence Revolution is will impact and change economic, political and social systems. You will learn more about the Intelligence Revolution and how this will affect you and your organization.

We are at the cusp of a new revolution. Democracies across the world are electing strong leaders to try to slow it down. This revolution, which could take 80 years to complete will be larger than the agricultural revolution of 6000 years ago and the industrial revolution of 300 years ago.

The Intelligence Revolution is occurring due to changes in programming techniques that have made computers more like us. These techniques include deep learning, artificial intelligence, big data, machine learning, neural networks, qbit computing and others.

Computer algorithms are currently better than the best humans at calculating, chess, jeopardy, poker and radiology. Driverless vehicles are already being used in ports and mines. Millions of driver’s jobs are at risk. In addition, numerous “safe” occupations are at risk of loss due to better performance by machines. Lawyers, accountants, economists, insurance, real estate agents and a whole wide path of professionals could be automated away. This will create huge increases in wealth for society but will create big disruptions.

Toby Madden is an experienced economist that seeks to help you make better financial decisions. He is a speaker, author, consultant, and the founder of Power Parametrics LLC, a boutique financial advising firm that uses statistical models and surveys to forecast the economy. He worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis for over twenty years, and taught undergraduate and masters level economics courses at Hamline University, University of St. Thomas, and Augsburg College.

This course has been approved by the Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce for 1 hour for Real Estate continuing education.
