So these are the questions I'm thinking about...
# What happens when A.I. and quantum computing start trading stocks faster and more accurately than any human possible? Have they?
# Will bitcoin and/or the blockchain transform the trading markets? Obsolete them?
# According to Olin Business School projections, 40 percent of today's Fortune 500 companies won't exist in 10 years. Are you investing in the right half of the market? Robotics, A.I. and 3D Printing will be massively disruptive and, at the same time, will create incredible opportunities.
On June 10th and 11th, jointly with CNBC and the faculty, I'm hosting a two-day session on the potential disruption of Wall Street by exponential technology.
Personally, I think this conversation is way way way overdue. So if this is of interest to you, join me in NYC at the Lincoln Center for a conversation called Exponential Finance. The two-day program is priced at $5,000.
I've negotiated a special discount price of $2,950. To get this, head over to xfin.co and enter the discount code SUDIAMANDIS.
If you're in the finance industry, this is going to be central to your life over the next 2 to 5 years. Additional topics we will cover include:
# cybersecurity, corporate vulnerabilities, fraud and bio-crime
# digital currency, including digital derivatives, smart contracts, peer-to-peer banking and wire-based settlement
# the implications of artificial intelligence on risk analysis, tax, audit and asset allocation
# regulatory hurdles around crowdfunding
I can't imagine a better place for you to go to learn how the topics I've been covering in my blogs fit specifically within the finance industry.
I hope to see you there!
P.S. If you've already bought a ticket, you can retroactively activate the discount by emailing email@example.com.
Well.. it was bound to happen and I’m really surprised it hasn’t happened sooner considering the amount that Netflix is spending on acquiring existing content and developing its own original content.
Netflix CEO in his letter to shareholders announced that a $1 or $2 raise for new subscribers is right around the corner (later this quarter, so before July) and while existing subscribers won’t be hit immediately, the phrasing: Existing members would stay at current pricing (e.g. $7.99 in the U.S.) for a generous time period. makes it pretty obvious what will happen before the year is out.
It’s kind of a mystery to me how Netflix manages to stay profitable on such a low subscription model, so I’m fine with a small increase. In theory it’s an opportunity for a competitor to step in, except I already have Hulu+ as well and Amazon Instant streaming doesn’t work on most of my devices so it’s a non-starter.
And let’s face it the combination of Hulu+ and Netflix is a hell of a lot cheaper than pretty much any Cable TV package.
