The 2019 YPO EDGE Theme is Introducing the Life of RE_.
“We are experiencing one of the most radical changes in human history – the economy, the future of work, and our society. As robotics, AI, machine learning, and the gig economy redefines our way of life, leadership will be challenged. In the tech world, software is in perpetual beta, never fully finished, constantly updated. As newly minted digital citizens, this is a process we could emulate. To live La Vida Beta. By leaning forward optimistically into the future to re-skill, re-tool, re-boot, re-invent. Welcome to the Life of RE_. A new way of being. A life of constant upgrade and improvement,” the association states.
