Tech Leadership Conference (TLC) 2016 is on May 12. With keynotes from Ray Kurzweil and Robin Chase — and featuring an all-star lineup of speakers on artificial intelligence, robot ethics, the sharing economy, and more — this year is totally focused on the future.

The Communitech Podcast is sitting down with upcoming TLC speakers to ask how they think about the future, and get some predictions about what’s to come (and what we need to do now to prepare ourselves).

Nik Badminton is a Vancouver-based futurist who has been obsessed with technology and human-computer interaction since he first started programming computers at 10-years-old. The Communitech Podcast asked Badminton about a favourite topic, artificial intelligence, and how it’s going to disrupt the ways we work, learn, live, and play.
