Talking About the Future
A long time ago, I realized that the most important thing about the future is understanding just how different it is going to be from the present. Managers and laypeople alike have been caught unawares in the whirlwinds of time passing by, and have found themselves thrust into churning white water, without a map to guide them. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could provide people a map for the future?
In my talks, I do just that: people receive a map for the possible futures that lie ahead. While we cannot foretell the future, we can visualize it in people's minds, so that they become better prepared for whatever comes, and can embrace it instead of denying it.
Let us walk and talk together, so that we can chart the roads the future paves for us all.
How Israel Became the Start-Up Nation
Israel is a mystery to many: a small, young nation with the third highest rate of entrepreneurship (and the highest rate among women) in the world, and with the largest concentration of hi-tech companies in the world, after the Silicon Valley. How did that happen? What can we learn from Israel's past and present, about the future?

In 2014 I used a 3D-printer in my house to print a functional gun, and went to a conference where Israel's prime minister was expected to give a speech. I went to the top floor of the building on the other side of the road, and had a friend connect the gun to an aerial drone on the ground. The gun was thus delivered to me via the air, on a porch watching onto the building where the prime minister was supposed to start speaking any moment now...

In the beginning of 2013, I decided to sequence my genetic code, so that I could better understand my future and my past. My findings have led me to a journey of discovery about both myself and the future of medicine, in an attempt to find the answer to the questions we're all looking for: when will we find a cure for the deadly diseases that riddle us - and will that solution come soon enough?
In 2013, President Obama declared in his State of the Union Address that 3D-printing "has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything." Five years before the President, I said the same thing from stages worldwide. Some twenty years before that, the prophet of nano-technology Dr. Eric Drexler forecast the coming of the 3D-printers and molecular assemblers, and the way they will transform society...
