Following is the full transcript of HR expert Rudy Karsan’s TEDx Talk: How the Future of Work is Not “Jobs” at TEDxCalgary conference.

TRANSCRIPT: 

Can you freaking believe it? I’m on a TEDx stage; how cool is that? And can you freaking believe it, we’re actually living in the Golden Age of our species. I am in absolute awe of what we have done.

If you and I were chatting about ten years ago, and having a conversation, and you told me that there would be a car built in a software platform that I could summon with my smartphone and could do zero to 60 in three seconds, travel 300 miles, have no gas, run on electricity, park itself and fuel itself with the hose in the garage? You think I’d believe you? No freaking way. It’s called Tesla.

If you and I were chatting ten years ago and you told me that in this strife-ridden world of ours, with all these people dying, that life expectancy would climb by 50% across the world, and 25% in the Western world, would I believe you? No. United Nations just showed its latest release of data: Six years increase in life expectancy over the last 12, globally, three years in the Western world.

If you told me ten years ago that a lot of cities in this world were getting 15% of their food through vertical farms that use 99% less land and 90% less water? I wouldn’t believe you, but it’s true.
