Oliver Lewis Describes a Virtual Reality So Vast That Everyone Could Live In It

Imagine a virtual reality so vast that all of us could effectively live in it. What would that mean for humankind? And, for our listeners out there, what would it mean for corporate finance?

In this episode of AFP Conversations guest Oliver Lewis discusses the work of Improbable, a tech startup that teamed with the British government to create arguably the most complete virtual simulation ever - and how it could help corporate finance. Lewis is an academic, innovation adviser and civil servant with interests in near-future technologies, institutional and corporate culture, diplomacy and national security. He will speak at the AFP MindShift Summit on October 14 in San Diego.
