The future is having the power to manifest your destiny in ways you never did before.
But don't get it twisted. The future doesn't happen overnight. It starts small, like an idea. And then it grows, changes, matures, and integrates until it becomes second-nature.
And, if you'll let me end this intro with a shameless plug, we've got nearly a dozen speakers lined up for the Neural track at TNW 2021 this year and they're all experts on what happens next.
Whether in-person or virtually present, I hope to see you there.

Solving climate change with quantum AI
As the philosopher Andre 3000 once said: You can plan a pretty picnic but you can't predict the weather.
And, despite what you may believe about modern science, that's still a true statement.
Predicting the weather is mind-bogglingly hard. We're not even close to pulling it off yet.
But, a team of scientists from India have some ideas that could change that.
Per their research paper:
We argue that new developments in Artificial Intelligence algorithms designed for quantum computers - also known as Quantum Artificial Intelligence (QAI) - may provide the key breakthroughs necessary to furthering the science of climate change. The resultant improvements in weather and climate forecasts are expected to cascade to numerous societal benefits.
Yes, Neural covers AI and quantum computing — but we're so much more! We've got one eye on big tech, one on the startup scene, and a third robotic eye focused on politics and government policy.
And that's exactly why we're proud to introduce Neural at TNW Conference, featuring an amazing speaker list with people who work and create in a variety of domains.
From Unity'sDanny Lange– a legend in the gaming industry – to Shopify'sElla Hilal, we're hosting some of the AI/ML community's most important thinkers. And, as a technology journalist, I can't wait to see and hear whatElizabeth Bramson-Boudreau, the CEO and publisher of MIT's Technology Review, has to say.
