A new wave of artificial intelligence is upending business, education, the internet, and more—and there’s still no end in sight, says Alex Kantrowitz.

In fun, original, and revealing talks, he shares an AI roadmap that every organization must consider as it adapts to the new world of AI.

Always Day OneHow the Tech Titans Plan to Stay On Top Forever

“Always Day One” is more than a mantra. It’s a way of life. At Amazon, the phrase is code for inventing like a start-up, and it’s embedded into the bedrock of the company’s culture. Day Two, warns Jeff Bezos, equals “stasis, followed by irrelevance, followed by excruciating, painful decline, followed by death.”

Unfortunately, most companies today operate from Day Two: they aggressively defend what they’ve already built, rather than continually reinventing themselves. Amazon and fellow tech titans Meta, Google, Apple, and Microsoft are the outliers. Despite their size and scope, they’ve stuck to the Day One mentality, prioritizing reinvention over tradition and collaboration over ownership. It may sound radical, but those who don’t act like it’s always Day One do so at their own risk.

Having conducted hundreds of interviews with everyone from Mark Zuckerberg to hourly wage workers, Alex Kantrowitz reveals the blueprint for sustainable success modeled by the world’s most powerful companies. In his scrupulously reported talk, he shows the way forward for everyone who wants to compete with—and beat—the titans.
