The big tech trends for 2018 May 4th, 2018Chris Riddell
I absolutely love working with the very people that are reinventing themselves for a world Beyond Tomorrow. Jaguar Landrover are an iconic brand that have been with us for decades, and a business that I have a very long term personal connection to.
The next 12 months or so are going to see a number of massive leaps forwards as Jaguar Land Rover release some exciting new products on our roads around the world. This marks the start of a new journey for the business as they put a new focus on the fusion of technology, experience and a new breed of consumer.
I was the opening keynote for the launch event in Uluru, and took my crew and one of the All New Discovery’s on a drive through the incredible outback of Australia.

The fear of robots taking over the world has reached an all time high. Elon Musk has stirred the pot again saying we should be terrified and it is the scariest problem we face as humanity today.
Should we really be frightened of robots, are they going to be fighting us in the streets and trying to take over the world? Or are we all living in fear of a fairytale and just terrified of the unknown? I joined The Project on Channel Ten to talk about Elon’s latest musings and you can watch the full segment above.

Most passengers will be familiar with the facial recognition cameras that are widespread through our international airports in Australia. For the international traveller it’s something of a normality walking into the glass box at immigration, while the cameras scan your face and check you against your passport details on the immigration database. It takes just seconds, the doors slide open and you’re off. It’s almost a shame to not get the stamps in your passport anymore.
I joined 3BA Ballarat’s Gareth Cockerell to talk about the technology trends impacting us at home and work, ahead of my keynote for Committee for Ballarat in July 2017. We also talked about what it means to be a futurist in our world that is moving faster than ever.
Talking Technology – Gareth Cockerell 3BA July 18th, 2017Chris Riddell
Things are a changin’ and the way we transact, shop and bank are all being transformed by digital. Blockchain is one of the biggest technology topics of 2017 and is still very much in its infancy, and as a result often misunderstood.
Global Futurist Chris Riddell joins Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise to talk about the new tech trends that are changing our world from payments to experiences.
Blockchain and our Frictionless Future August 14th, 2017Chris Riddell
In the year 2050, our world will be vastly different from what it is today. Virtual and Physical will be fused together beyond recognition – so much so that you won’t be able to tell the difference between the two.
We will also see Artificial Intelligence co-piloting business at the very top, and leaders relying on computers to help them make decisions at every step.
Global Futurist Chris Riddell joined The Project on Channel Ten to talk about the launch of flying cars in Australia, and when we should expect to see them buzzing in the skies.
In the future we will be able to transport ourselves in personal drones, so how will this change the way we think about technology. Will government legislation be able to keep up with this pace of change or will it get in the way and stifle innovation?
Flying cars are now a real thing August 14th, 2017Chris Riddell
The year 2050 is only 33 years away, but with the ever-accelerating rate of technological innovation and human expansion, we’re heading at hyper speed towards a seriously brave new world.
Facebook have just announced the new ‘Spaces’ platform which will augment our physical and digital worlds even further, bringing new ultra personalised experiences to us through social media, and in realtime.
I joined ABC Peter Goers to talk about the resurgence of old technology into our lives. Vinyl has made an undeniable comeback, and many argue it is better than most current digital forms. What other trends from yesteryear will we see back in our lives, and how can we make sure with everything now ‘digital’ that we keep on experiencing everything in the way it was originally intended?
