I have written a 100 chart deck explaining why Identity is the defining and existential issue of the 21st Century.
Identity Century - the business of people in the future.
This is part one of a two-part presentation.
This first 100 slides are publicly available and free to view:
The deck sets out the changing nature of identity.
It argues that identity is the underlying issue of many of our societal and cultural tensions and that it is itself unduly influenced by the technologies of digitisation.
The effects will last a century. As should the analysis.
Right now, you need to prepare for full-scale profilicity.
Authenticity now misses the mark. Plurality is reality.
AI = Artificial Identity
Analogue identity and digital identity will need to reconcile.
From now on, identity will lie at the heart of every connection people make, everything people do and everywhere people go.
With pseudonymous identities that 'protect' them, avatars that 'express' them, credentials that 'authenticate' them, and agents that 'expand' or 'enhance' them, every person is affected. We are all about to embark on the Identity Century.
There are huge implications for all organisations, businesses and brands (even more detail in part two).
Do have a read and let me know questions, thoughts, or ideas about the concept of Identity Century - the business of people in the future.
