Interview visionary pioneers in autonomous driving and body optimization

Every single one of your readers is interested in the future and what role they will play in it – from a personal, medical, technological or sociopolitical point of view. The 2b AHEAD ThinkTank is now offering you the opportunity to apply for press accreditation at this year's 2b AHEAD Future Congress in Wolfsburg – where leading thinkers and innovators from a wide variety of industries come together to present and discuss their visions of the future. We have reserved a limited number of free tickets for journalists.


Leipzig, April 12, 2018 – "2028 - How much human can the future take?" - this year's speakers at the 17th 2b AHEAD Future Congress on June 19-20, 2018 are all asking themselves this question. Since 2002, Sven Gábor Jánszky, Germany's best-known futurist, has invited 300 CEOs, pioneering innovators, and brand strategists from the most diverse sectors of international business to the ThinkTank's annual Future Congress. Once again in 2018, the renowned congress will take place at Wolfsburg Castle under the main sponsorship of Wolfsburg AG.


What role will humans play in the emerging digital world? How will our business models change? How will products and services change? And what competencies, structures, and leadership methods do we need in our businesses?


The 2b AHEAD ThinkTank has succeeded in attracting numerous international innovation experts and rule breakers from all over the world to join this year's dialogue. Three of them are named here:

Zoltan Istvan is a self-proclaimed "world leader in science, technology and the future." In the 2016 US presidential election, the techno-universalist appealed to advocates and opponents alike with his statements on immortality and the eradication of diseases. He says: "In order not to be overrun by AI, we have to become part of the machine ourselves.”


Dr. Simon Kos joined Microsoft in 2010. In 2016, he became Chief Medical Officer and Senior Director Worldwide Health and has since been responsible for providing clinical advice, vision, and strategy for Microsoft technologies and solutions in the healthcare industry. His goal: to transform and improve the industry through the use of technology and innovation.


One of the most exciting attackers of blockchain technology is the IOTA Foundation, founded by Dominik Schiener. His vision: to use distributed ledger technology to coordinate the smart cities of the future, where everyday objects are interconnected – but also communicate and do business with each other. The rising star in the post-blockchain scene has already persuaded Bosch and VW.
