Tech guru and best-selling author Alec Ross talks about the innovations set to transform business and society in the near future – and why this matters.


BNP Paribas was proud to welcome Alec Ross, futurist and bestselling author of The Industries of the Future, as keynote speaker to its 13th annual High Yield and Leveraged Finance Conference in January 2017.

Over 1,000 attendees, including corporate and institutional clients of the bank, listened to Alec's lively and engaging predictions about the technological innovations he believes will impact our lives in the next five years. This video presents the highlights of his speech, focusing on the fascinating pace of change in financial and data technology.
"Land was the raw material of the agricultural age; iron was the raw material of the industrial age; data is the raw material of the information age."
