It scares me a lot. But good. I will emphasize five points very by
over. The truth is that each point would lead to an ad hoc debate, but they will be
headlines without lowering much more, okay? I will try not to be very technologist. I will try to be very,
more futuristic, to go down to Earth later, okay? On the one hand you have compared many the
human body, I agree very well. That is, I would compare then, even beyond the
technology, that is, intelligent communities are a human body in which, then, the buildings are
would be the muscles for example the lungs would be the green areas, the bones would then be a
part of the industry, etc. I mean, in the end it ends in the brain where the brain would be the part
“smart”, smart community, an intelligent part. But somehow, all of us who are in
this room, we are a cyborg already, somehow, right? That is, we all have an extension in the hand of
a smartphone, with which that Oracle in which We look for information on Google, we take pictures.
We are even immortal. If we die, that Cyber intelligence remains there. Of some
way smart communities should be also, that is, a little, even beyond a
cyborg, that we are humans, at the level like community, they are much more than that, right? By
than? Because we have a limitation of bandwidth, we have two thumbs as output of
information. And the entrance is perhaps wider, isn’t it? Because they are, Instagram is very famous because
they are photos and videos, and it is easier to enter. But the exit is two thumbs at the end, right? So if we
plug something here, someday, and that biological intelligence joins digital intelligence,
really, well, scary, but we will turn something very important,
we will be very agile in all this. So, compared to the human body,
for me there are two important priorities. One would be to balance. I mean, if you muscle more
one leg than the other, you may be unbalanced. Therefore, a priority in the communities would be
equal opportunities for all. I mean, there are a great inequality yet, to all
levels. And we have to match up, okay? And finally, in a community and a body
human, the goal is well-being and be happy. I have come here to life, not to be the best technologist
or the richest, if not to be the happiest on Earth. But communities have to be very happy.
Therefore, the simile of the human body with the communities, and yet
for me it is an important chapter. Second point, in the long term I like to ensure that
the long term is good, that the future is good. And I’m worried about things I see, right? For me health, money and love, are three priorities.
And that in English, for communities, could be in simile “workable, liveable, and sustainable”, okay?
Then we have to keep it, that’s important. But hey, we already know that cities concentrate
today 50% of the population in 2% of the geography. In 2050 we will reach 70% and 80%,
there is going to be a great concentration. Then the long term will be very concentrated in cities, okay? There are three elements that must be in the center. I think there are four important revolutions.
One is the generational. The millennial, the Z. Another important is the aging of the population.
That is, we have few children. Especially in the area European, which we project to be less than 8% in
2050. They will send much Asia and Africa. For another On the other hand, Digital Transformation is a brutal boom.
And on the other hand, Climate Transformation I also *** a little, and we have
that taking care of the planet enough, okay? This leads us to every company, every community,
it has to evolve. If it does not happen what happens with Blockbuster, with Kodak, with Blackberry,
no? So we have to evolve With three important elements. One to have
the citizen, the user, in the center. On the other hand, take great care of the Customer Experience.
That is, it is not the same to buy a washing machine, which is a product, which buy a benefit, or a
service, or a result, that would be to have clean clothes. I mean, I don’t have to have a washing machine.
What I want is to cover a need, which is clean clothes. Then we have to center. Not
User Experience is the same as Customer Experience, that the product environment, okay? And finally cover the “end2end” experience,
okay? That is, it is a bit friction free. And that if you buy a ticket at a point of
a city, then by plane, and then you have a stop traffic, let an alarm come to you that is capable of
say salt before home because if you’re not going to arrive late and you will miss the plane. If I lose the plane,
I c *** eo, if I c *** eo, my User Experience is a l *** e. Therefore, we must always see the
“end2end” in the communities around, okay? The fourth point would be, how do I see the future
to 10 years, right? Beyond 10 years. If it does … in 1900 they would have asked
anyone who were going to travel to the moon in 1966, although in 1906 the Wright brothers launched
the first plane. Or that the Internet would be. People He would tell us we’re crazy, okay? Then for
me the future is not predictable. Why can not we think now that from here to 100
years … see what happened in 1900. But on the other hand video games is an example.
40 years ago there was a video game, which we have over 40, the Pong, which has a dash and a dot,
we had a great time everyone. 40 have passed years, and video games are realistic photo. You can
communicate, with a 100 euros pot, with all, millions of users at once, in the world.
So, humanity has more than 18 billion years. The first writings came out 8,000 years ago.
I think that, well, by 50, 100, 1000, 2000, I don’t care, because this is little compared
with humanity, I don’t know if we will be inside a videogame. That is, possibly the world is a
video game, like Matrix, we don’t know. But hey reality is far beyond fiction, okay? The immediate future. We have many immediate technologies that are
tremendous, right? I mean, here I had signed up, well, 14. How can they be, Intelligence
Artificial, which is a reality now. The Autonomous Car, It is a reality technologically now. That is, from here to
less than 10 years, the same security we had on going up to an elevator, and hitting a button, and let me
carry, and it takes me, and nobody thinks it’s going to fall, With the autonomous car it will work. So,
when the safety of the Autonomous Car is much safer than a normal user, that you can
sleep, or drink alcohol, etc., so effectively to I will be safer, okay? As is an elevator.
We also have the IoT, the Blockchain, the 3D Printing, the Wireless Power, the Virtual Assistants, the
Cloud world The Cloud world not only in Technology, but also in shared cars. I’m going to a
gym that is shared, which is Gympass, okay? That is, as I am between Madrid and Barcelona, well no
is, I do not have to pay many gyms, but I pay a service, which is the model of washing machines
I was commenting. Robotics, Mobility, Cybersecurity, etc., okay? I am going fast. Then, I’m missing five points that
they are social challenges that I see that concern me, and that they are important. One would be the legislation, Josep María,
around Artificial Intelligence, okay? As I said, this is exponential, and the
legislation is linear, and there is an important gap. So, like everything in life, in legislation,
until there aren’t many l *** it is in cars, like by belts, or by drinking alcohol, or by going very
fast, there is no regulation that takes away the points, and that, that is, that undermines those accidents,
that danger So, Artificial Intelligence, until there are no major catastrophes, as they are
beginning to be, it is not going to be taken very seriously. And apart, that there are many egotistical governments, or
very self-based models, which we are not looking at it in ONU mode, or in generalized mode. But,
it’s exponential, and we have to watch it because, well, once it’s underway, it’s dangerous, okay? The second social challenge I see is the
Mobility. That has to do with traffic. The cities were configured for carriages.
In Madrid I think 30% is space for cars private individuals All this is changing. Therefore, it is a world
in which the model, as in technology we say “onprem”, that is dedicated or at home, because every time
it makes less sense. In the end, with the cars autonomous, etc., there will be a lot of change, a lot
revolution. In the end a car 95% of the time It is parked or in a parking lot. Of the remaining 5%,
which is the one that remains, 4% are stuck. And use to go from a point A to a point B is 1%. By
so much, it is an Asian luxury. And we all have, not one, two, three or four cars in the family, which are
all day in the parking lots, spending money, and that We are not using, and they generate traffic.
Therefore, there must be a revolution there important, right? That brings me to social challenge three, right? It would
robotization is perhaps breaking employment, they can say, right? I think there are about 2 billion cars in the world.
If we add trucks, it would be 2.5 billion English, of trucks. Fortunately the production of
Cars does not exceed 100 million a year. So, to get to cover and replace all that dough
of cars, we have to spend 20, 25, or 30 years. That is, within 20, 25, or 30 years, there will be
12 or 15% less employability, of which they are working and living on cars. By
as much as in all revolutions, we have to reinvent ourselves, and we have to look for new ones
activities. There was a conference in Shanghai ago bit of Artificial Intelligence where it was discussed then what
would happen with those jobs, right? Many, some we said that, for example, Jack Ma, from Alibaba, because he said
that, that’s good, because you had to work two days a week, four hours, and that’s it. Why
things will be cheaper, and more accessible, and more easy to manufacture Another like Elon Musk, Tesla’s,
well, it said, then, generate a general subsidy. Well I don’t know, there were debates about that,
because things were cheaper, right? So, all that will change, and it will produce quite a lot,
quite a need for a different job, right? And then education is very focused on
to remember, to calculate, to things they do and to machines and computers, therefore it has no
sense. That is, education must be changed, and make it a model of being more creative. From
teach me to think, and not force myself to do things, okay? That is, there must be a
important transformation there too. Social challenge number four. I’m almost done. I think there is an excess of IT, throwing stones at me
on my roof Digital Technology When there is lack in other technologies. And the matter should
turn. For example, in other industries, sorry. As, for example, the field could be
doctor. For cancer and Alzheimer’s. I think they are fields where you have to invest and develop
much more. The genetic field The field of Industrial robotics. Well, there are many fields in which, perhaps.
The field of connecting, perhaps, the part of the brain with that digital “I”, with that digital layer that commented
At first, it is an important field, okay? And finally, challenge five. Climate change.
What am I going to tell you? It’s the “last” but not the “least”, as it is said in English. Good, we have a variable that is “X”, of circulating CO2
in the environment, that plants and plants absorb it animals. But that suddenly exponentially
we add the “Y”, right ?, with everything we are producing, exponentially. They take it
The oceans and the environment. Therefore, then You have to balance it. But really, the problem
I see there, it is also, once again, a subject of regulation, right? I mean, if somehow
we record that fossil energies are penalized a bit versus, and non-fossils are favored,
We could have an immediate important improvement. Because the question is not if we are going to change
to a zero emission model. I mean, the question is when. And the sooner the better. And that model
of zero emissions, it is important. For example, I find the simile of garbage, right? We all have
emissions that are garbage bags. Imagine that we do not pay, we do not record, those garbage emissions.
And the trash bags are left in the street and they cumulate. Well it’s the same. That is, we would not like that. Well
we are accumulating that CO2 in the environment, and we don’t want to record for it. That is,
We have to try to encourage it. And a very easy way, for example, with all the
sustainable energies that we have within our reach, they would be solar panels with a battery. He
Sahara desert would cover 46 times the need for energy that has the Earth, which
It will triple in the coming years. 46 times! A small part of Spain, would cover all
Europe. A small part of Texas would cover to all USA, ok? Therefore, I think we have to
do something from the regulation part, in addition to the technology, then immediately. Thank you.
