Vision document about consequences of new technologies.
The world is changing faster and faster. A major driver of these changes is the emergence and smart use of new technologies from business initiatives such as Uber and Airbnb. These new, disruptive concepts, sometimes invented in someone's attic, are rocking the foundations of the old economy. Revenue models that used to guarantee large earnings have lost their value in only a few years' time.
We cannot turn back the clock. Burying one's head in the sand is not an option. Like it or not, we will have to find answers to the urgent questions that these changes pose. Because one thing is certain, especially in Eindhoven: the future always holds more promises and opportunities than threats.
Music is also changing fast, when it comes to its role and function. But what, exactly, constitutes change? Is this a one-time change, or just the start? What remains, and what will disappear? How
does it affect the way people listen to music, visit a concert, or play an instrument? What are the economic consequences of these changes? And how do they affect the role of government?
This 'vision document' features five individuals, each with their own personal thoughts and views on the future and its limits. Are you tuned to the same frequency? Is the signal clear, or is there static on the line?
