Annual lecture 2019
Now in its fifth year, the PMI annual lecture has become a must-attend event for those looking for something a little different to the usual pensions events. This year’s speaker, futurist Sophie Hackford, certainly didn’t disappoint. Speaking to an audience of 150 PMI members and non members on 26 September, Sophie, a futurist whose research entails meeting ‘weirdos and troublemakers’ in off-the-beaten-track labs, makerspaces, and garages around the globe, gave us a fast-paced overview of the explosive technologies that are shaping our future. Covering ground such as ‘new data’, privacy, artificial intelligence, robotics, digital immortality and more, Sophie gave us a lot to think about, both in application to our roles as pensions professionals and in our daily lives.
And there’s good news if you missed the lecture - for the first time ever we will be able to share a video of Sophie’s talk with all our members.
