Summary: Lars Thomsen is consultant and founder of the “Future Matters” Think Tank, which explores and investigates future developments in Pharma, biotechnology, and medical genetics (“longer lives”). Another issue tackled is mobility: the electric iCar will pick up clients, play their favorite music, read recent emails aloud and give restaurant recommendations. The knowledge and capability of the machines will grow immensely: they will start communicating with us – the so-called Thomsen “evolution”. Within the next ten years machines will produce things cheaper and faster and will replace lots of jobs: the next crisis is a crisis of work.
