Several Deep Knowledge Group partners and executives participated in key events in Europe from May 25th - June 3rd, 2022, including the Davos Longevity Investment Forum during the 2022 World Economic Forum in Switzerland and the Ecosystems 2030 conference in Spain.
Deep Knowledge Group is a consortium of commercial and non-profit organisations active on multiple fronts in the realm of DeepTech and Frontier Technologies (AI, Longevity, FinTech, GovTech, InvestTech), ranging from scientific research to investment, entrepreneurship, analytics, media, philanthropy and more.
The Group is well known for its sophisticated DeepTech analytics, predictive forecasting and benchmarking, having received coverage as early as 2014 in bestselling books on the future of technology, including The Fourth Industrial Revolution by World Economic Forum Founder and Chairman Klaus Schwab.
Deep Knowledge Group Founder and General Partner Dmitry Kaminskiy delivered two keynote addresses on the topics of Longevity, DeepTech, Artificial Intelligence and their intersection at the coming inflection point of the 5th Industrial Revolution, while several other of the Group’s partners and executives (including Stefan Hascoet (Head of Deep Knowledge Ventures Suisse) and Cecelia Yu (Head of UK and Europe at Deep Knowledge Group and Managing Partner at Longevity.Capital) attended a variety of surrounding events and met with a number of high-calibre thought-leaders.
As the head of Deep Knowledge Group’s Swiss activities Stefan Hascoet focused his engagements on Swiss governance, policy and financial industry professionals at large throughout Davos, while Cecelia Yu, as Managing Partner of Longevity.Capital, focused her meetings towards senior bankers, investors and top executives interested in working with Deep Knowledge Group in its ongoing work to develop the financial and infrastructural ecosystem required to transform DeepTech and the Longevity Industry into viable asset classes of their own.
These two events are among the first physical, face-to-face major conferences to be held in 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in some respects represent opposite ends of the current DeepTech event landscape. The Longevity Investment Summit at Davos was attended by a select group of high-profile investors interested in the Longevity Industry investment landscape, and was held during the 2022 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, which brings together world leaders to discuss major economic, political and social opportunities and challenges facing global society today.
By contrast, Spain’s invitation-only Ecosystems 2030, founded by Dr. Omar Hatamleh (Head of Technology Integration for ISRU at NASA) and organized with significant support from the Spanish government (including on the conference’s Honorary Committee the King of Spain, His Majesty Filipe VI, and Inés Rey García, the Mayor of A Coruña), brought together a much more diverse range of 150 high-calbre thought-leaders from government, industry, investment and finance interested in the impacts of AI, DeepTech and emerging technologies on their professions.
The specific timing of these events was particularly fortunate, in that they represented an ideal forum for the unveiling of several Deep Knowledge Group projects and outputs which have recently been completed. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic the Group focused substantial resources to optimizing, extending and enhancing a variety of back-end tools and features within its IT, Data Science and analytics departments (including the sophisticated data visualization and AI, Deep Learning and Reinforcement Learning algorithms fueling its various Big Data Analytics Dashboards), as well as its financial projects department (focused on the development of legal, financial and ecosystemic frameworks and instruments to support the accelerated development of DeepTech, the establishment of an integral financial infrastructure for its further growth and stabilization, and its emergence as a new asset class in and of itself). With many such projects now at the stage of launch, these two high-profile events in Davos and Spain served as unexpectedly ideal circumstances in which to announce their completion.
The pursuit of this truly ecosystemic approach, and the integral fusion of sophisticated analytics with investment, internal entrepreneurship and financial industry activities to stablize, optimize and accelerate DeepTech industry development, is the foundation and basis for Deep Knowledge Group’s commitment to ensuring that all necessary components of the 5th Industrial Revolution are in place before the year 2030, and its mission to do as much as possible to personally and practically pave the way for its emergence.
This vision of the near-future is rooted in the notion of technocracy, and the recognition that technological progress is the decisive factor impacting the stability, sustainability and overall growth potentials of national economies, as well as the primary driver of quality of life and the most efficient tool for nations to realize opportunities, neutralize challenges and optimally execute nearly all national strategic priorities at the intersection of population health, access to technology, geopolitical stability, education and economy.
Deep Knowledge Group remains committed to developing and deploying reliably sophisticated and multidimensional Big Data analytics, AI, Machine Learning and Reinforcement-Learning driven technological forecasting and benchmarking of DeepTech industries, pioneering the fundamental tools required for strategic decision making in these unprecedentedly complex and innovation-driven sectors, laying the foundation and basis for defining, thinking about and understanding the 5th Industrial Revolution.
However, more than this, the Group remains just as decisively committed to the practical execution of many of these forecasted developments by establishing the core investment and financial industry infrastructure (platforms, indices, exchanges and financial instruments and derivatives) needed to execute the concept of DeepTech Commoditization and facilitate the transition into the 5th Industrial Revolution. Indeed, fostering and accelerating the emergence of the 5th Industrial Revolution is the definitive and decisive long-term goal of Deep Knowledge Group, and the only ROI it will settle for in its mission to support, develop, deploy and accelerate the advancement and emergence of DeepTech for the good of global society.
Therefore, the choice for Deep Knowledge Group to attend these two events in Davos and Spain in particular is no coincidence, in that they precisely reflect the two sides (government on the one hand, and industry, investment and finance on the other) that need to be bridged in order to effectively and optimally transition into the beginnings of the 5th Industrial Revolution (a term and concept coined by Deep Knowledge Group), which is grounded at its very foundation in the recognition of the development-to-scale and socially-inclusive adoption of advanced technologies (DeepTech) as the key driver of quality of life, national and global economic stability, and geosocial stability. It recognizes health, wealth and knowledge as the most precious asset classes, and their preservation and optimization across citizens and economies as the highest good. And it will require maximum coordination between governments and societies with the primary decision makers of industry, investment and finance in order to emerge in an optimal, maximally accelerated, tangible and socially-inclusive manner.

On May 25, 2022, Deep Knowledge Group General Partner Dmitry Kaminskiy delivered a keynote address on the current state and future of the Longevity Industry at the Davos Longevity Investment Summit during the World Economic Forum 2022.
During his keynote address, Kaminskiy presented key findings on major trends and developments shaping the 2022 Longevity Industry and investment landscape, outlining the Group’s work in defining the sector, having coined and popularized the term ‘Longevity Industry’, and the developments which led to the Group’s creation the largest Longevity Industry database in the world (50,000 companies, 12,000 investors, and 1,200 R&D hubs distributed across 20 sectors and 160 subsectors, with over 9.5 million data points assembled into one integrated Longevity Big Data analytical system).
His address also highlighted the Group’s development of sophisticated Longevity Industry and Investment Big Data Analytical Dashboards, which are key components of Deep Knowledge Group’s ongoing activities to support the industry’s continued growth, and its pursuit of a truly ecosystemic approach through its various financial service divisions to establish an integral financial infrastructure to support the commoditization of the Longevity Industry as a new asset class.
