Matt Coatney, CTO at HBR Consulting, interviewed by host Trond Arne Undheim, futurist, investor, and author. In this conversation, we talked about the book Matt Coatney co-authored, The Human Cloud: How Today's Changemakers Use Artificial Intelligence and the Freelance Economy to Transform Work. From routinized, repetitive assembly line work towards project oriented work--in all sectors. Enablers--AI, globalization, cloud platforms, shadow IT. Limitations-structure, regulations, organizational blockers. Future outlook: orchestration as the key human skill, industry- and task-specific cloud collaboration platforms. My takeaway is that the freelancer economy is all about orchestrating people and technologies at a distance. This is not easy. As more and more intense and complex project oriented work takes place outside the remits of the traditional workplace, team, leadership and management skills need to increase in magnitude and quality. The sweet spot is where the enabling technology meets the challenges of human connection and productivity. The experimentation and the debate will only intensify in the years to come.

Eddy Badrina, CEO of Eden Green, interviewed by host Trond Arne Undheim, futurist, investor, and author. In this conversation, we talk about whether indoor grown food is equally healthy? How has the space of vertical farming emerged? We discuss the demand for organic food, environmental concerns, soil quality depletion, groundwater depletion, and chemical pollution. Eddy explains the main distinctions and concepts, including Greenhouses, Hydroponics, Aeroponics, Aquaponic, Vertical farming, and the various growth vectors, such as greenhouse, shipping container, skyscraper, or warehouse. We discuss sensors, climate control, LED lighting. How do you define the vertical farming market? Who are the players? Which disruption forces are most actively influencing the field of vertical farming right now? How does he stay up to date? How does he recommend my listeners (and I) stay up to date? Looking at the next decade, I ask Eddy what he thinks will happen to vertical farming? We discuss high yield local food production in inner cities, near deserts, on islands, on in space and beyond My takeaway is that vertical farming is poised for growth, and I don't just mean that as a pun. There are legitimate reasons why foodtech is exploding right now. Food and Ag coupled with tech is necessary, exciting, and is becoming scalable. Can the costs of vertical farming come down? Will we see vertical farms in every country and every municipality? Time will show.

Catherine Havasi, CEO and co-founder, Dalang Health, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about Patient experience. Telehealth. Personalizing digital health. The AI space (ConceptNet, crowdsourcing for AI, word embeddings, transfer learning, multilingual natural language processing (NLP), and machine learning, federated learning). Chronic Disease Management. Exciting applications (health coaching, telehealth, mHealth, chatbots, agent assist, augmentation, scaling personalization, digital characters, animation, avatars). Perspectives on the future. The takeaway is that  Digital Health AI must emerge but only when we are sure the software truly works. For now, what we have is scattered machine learning applications that approximate meaning and compute fairly mindlessly. Hyperpersonalized health will indeed depend on AI, but the tech will only succeed if its developers realize that life is complex, people are different, and there was a reason healthcare has been somewhat tailored to each person in a manual fashion. Behavioral health apps are great, but need to be integrated into the health system in an interoperable manner before it can have its true effect on population health and individual health outcome.  Having listened to this episode, check out Dalang Health as well as Catherine Havasi's online profile: Catherine Havasi (@catherinehavasi) https://www.linkedin.com/in/havasi/   Dalang Health (@dalangtech) https://www.dalanghealth.com/  Homepage https://www.catherinehavasi.com/  The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

Tuğberk Duman, Head of Innovation at Futurice, the Finnish consultancy, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about  Why thinking about a world beyond the screen? Invisible user interface where natural gestures (body movements, perhaps even thoughts) trigger interactions. Current examples making use of Alexa, Google Home, Siri, Cortana, or Google Glass). Experiments, Trends in UI design, Design thinking inspiration and components (chatbots, biometrics, computer vision, new ecosystem business models). Emerging use cases. Surprising industries are first adopters.  The next decade—what will happen next to Zero UI and in which sequence?. The takeaway is that whilst it would be nice to think we are there, we in fact have a ways to go before we reach the ultimate Zero User Interface Experience. Having said that, the world beyond the screen is desperately needed, as we reel from coronavirus-induced work fatigue. The surprising thing is that it’s not really the technology that’s stopping us--it’s our imagination. We would be fully capable of coming up with compelling user interfaces already today, using existing technologies, if we only knew how.  After listening to this episode, check out Futurice as well as Tuğberk Duman's online profile: Futurice https://futurice.com/ Tuğberk Duman (@tugberkdmn) https://www.linkedin.com/in/tu%C4%9Fberk-duman-b0947148/ The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

Jon Wellinghoff, CEO of GridPolicy and former Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  Now a quick word from our partners: Cleantech.org is a leading virtual research institute and incubator to the cleantech sector, with an online membership base of over 45,000. Subscribe to the site to learn more about cleantech and meet scientists and entrepreneurs to commercialize your ideas. Contact info AT cleantech.org. That’s cleantech.org/ In this conversation, they talk about The transdisciplinary mindset needed to understand energy innovation, The policy/regulation impasse. The downside of monopolistic utilities (at the distribution, transmission, and generation levels). Sustainable energy systems, Distributed energy resource (DER) systems. Disruptive forces--particularly policy barriers (and opportunities). The regulatory tools available in the US and abroad (FERC, State regulators), the Texas case of free utility competition, exciting startups in the space (Smartwires, Whisker Labs, etc), the impact of innovation on the policy mix and outcome. Lastly, we discuss the next decade.  The takeaway is that Grid Energy Innovation seems to finally be underway, and with that, we can see transformation across the grid and consumers can finally get involved. However, energy still consists of a myriad of separate markets, both nationally and regionally, and that total picture is not likely to change any time soon. Once it does, we are looking at opportunities that are very hard to fathom, and implications for how we live and how our planet responds.    Having listened to this episode, check out Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), GridPolicy and Jon Wellinghoff's online profile: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (@FERC) https://www.ferc.gov/  Grid Policy http://gridpolicy.com/ Jon Wellinghoff (@jbwellinghoff) https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonwellinghoff/  The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

AI Talent Diversity

AI Talent Diversity

2021-01-2651:46

Taniya Mishra, Founder of SureStart, the diverse AI training platform, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about why STEM or STEAM is not enough. They discuss pre-college and post-college--the leaky inflection points for students 16-23. What about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), the importance of relational, proximate mentoring, fairness in algorithms, affective computing, emerging applications (learning, factories, automotive, healthcare). Emotionally literate AI. Surestart.com-a startup mentoring the next generation. How can AI change the world for the better? The future of AI education. How to scale kindness?

Nick Jankel, transformational futurist, the CEO and co-founder of Switch On, and author of the new book Now Lead The Change, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about The Personal Development Market. VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity). Trends in Self-help, Leadership, Therapy, Coaching, and Healing. Brain science. Wisdom. Practical psychology. Bio-Transformation Theory.   Reading cognitive v. emotional signals in yourself and others. The future of business and human personal development, next decade and beyond. Being future-proof (as organizations and individuals). The takeaway is that the Personal Development Market is just starting up. If you include Therapy, Coaching, Leadership, and Mindfulness apps, it may well be a 100 billion market. The idea that we should be the change we want to see in the world, a saying that has been attributed to the famous Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, is easy to pronounce but hard to do, but may well be an essential insight. What is for certain is that we cannot sit around waiting for positive change, no matter where we are on the societal ladder. Tying it explicitly to futurist thinking was novel to me and quite refreshing.  After listening to this episode, check out Switch On, Now Lead the change--the book, as well as Nick Jankel's online profile: Switch On https://switchonnow.com/ Now Lead the change https://www.amazon.com/Now-Lead-Change-Future-Proof-Transformational-ebook/dp/B085TRK243  Nick Jankel (@nickjankel) https://www.linkedin.com/in/nickjankel/ The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

The Future of Longevity

The Future of Longevity

2021-01-1901:01:25

Dmitry Kaminskiy, Partner, Deep Knowledge Ventures, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about What is longevity and why does it matter if we live longer? Health span v. Lifespan. The Intersection of AgeTech, WealthTech and FinTech. The silver tsunami (of aging). Quality-adjusted life-year (QALY). Scenarios. Rise of policy scene for longevity. Biomarkers on the path to population health. How AI intersects with longevity. P4 (Preventive, Precision, Personalized and Participatory) Medicine. Who will first reach their 123rd birthday? A Manhattan project for longevity. The Longevity Industry 1.0 and 2.0—towards the next trillion dollar industry. The takeaway is that longevity may indeed be the next trillion dollar industry and may perhaps be the most complex industry as well. Staying in good health is an important shared goal across the globe, and our health is constantly under threat from diseases, including aging. However, there is a drastic difference in the goals of increasing healthspan v. increasing life span. To my mind, there might even have to be a significant ethical debate whether life span is worth increasing on a general basis. Do we really need to live that much longer? Is there an optimal life span and does it depend on the available resources or the available meaning of life that the individual has at any given time? These are complex questions without obvious answers.  After listening to the episode, check out Deep Knowledge Ventures, Longevity 1.0, the book, as well as Dmitry Kaminskiy's online profile: Deep Knowledge Group https://www.dkv.global/  Longevity 1.0 https://www.longevity-book.com/ Dmitry Kaminskiy (@DmitryKaminskiy) https://www.kaminskiy.info/ and https://www.linkedin.com/in/dmitrykaminskiy/  The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

Futuristic AI

Futuristic AI

2021-01-1454:47

Ben Goertzel, CEO and founder of SingularityNET and Chairman of the Artificial General Intelligence Society, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, we talk about Futuristic applications of interoperable AI. Sophia- the robot. Singularity. Transhumanism. How to define intelligence . Decentralized, Distributed, interoperable AI. The importance of trust to progress with technology. Future of human-computer interaction.  My takeaway is that futuristic AI will continue to fascinate, whether we ever get there--or not. It is a Janus faced future the proponents of Artificial General Intelligence are exploring. Will it solve more problems than it creates? In reality, it’s not a question of when we get there --un less we suddenly find ourselves needing that level of intelligence for an existential survival issue for our race, but how we get there. At some point, we likely will. But whether it will take 50 or 150 years, I’m less sure about.  After listening to this episode, check out SingularityNET and Ben Goertzel's online profile: SingularityNET https://singularitynet.io/ Ben Goertzel https://www.linkedin.com/in/bengoertzel/ The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

Jon Tota, CEO and founder of Syntax + Motion and host of the Learning Life Podcast, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, we talk about The future of learning experience design. Shifting focus from the teacher to thinking about learners first. How to teach true skills? How do you get the user to interact? From learning management systems (LMS) via design thinking to learning experience platforms (LXP). Should everybody have their own online course for personal branding? Corporate learning. Individual thought leadership. How to navigate the noise? What to consume? What to produce? How to earn money with content? The takeaway is that learning experience design is an ever-evolving field which finally is taking off. We need it. Learning should be fun, interactive, engaging and learning software platforms should be well thought out and easy to use. It’s slowly starting to happen.

Jesse Boehm, the scientific director of the Broad Institute’s Cancer Dependency Map Initiative and an institute scientist at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about mobilizing the unique sci-tech environment for health in Massachusetts. They discuss the Broad Institute's ethos and the Boehm Lab’s cancer collaboration for rare diseases. They cover the Healthtech Map, Test & Trace efforts including a 3-month pilot program of weekly COVID testing for certain students and staff. and how it got off the ground. We look at Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF) COVID-19 Innovation Fund and what is has accomplished. Finally, we discuss the future of healthtech and the future of community scientists and ‘community resource maps’, towards Science 2.0. The takeaway is that  community science is crucial at this juncture in history.  We can no longer take for granted that people listen to experts, nor should we. Rather, it needs to be a dialogue. Trust is and should be contingent on proving value and disclosing evidence and rationale. Also, the data is increasingly all of us, so we are the science. This is a very different future than many had imagined. Yet, it might be the only one available.  After listening to this episode, check out Jesse Boehm's online profile, the Broad Institute’s Cancer Dependency Map Initiative and The Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF) COVID-19 Innovation Fund: Broad Institute’s Cancer Dependency Map Initiative https://www.broadinstitute.org/cancer/cancer-dependency-map Boehm Lab http://www.boehmlab.org/ Jesse Boehm (@boehmjesse) https://www.linkedin.com/in/jesse-boehm-0881145/ The Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF) COVID-19 Innovation Fund https://www.wellesleyeducationfoundation.org/innovation-fund  Thanks for listening.

Jaya Baloo, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Avast Software, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about why is it so hard to eradicate cybersecurity challenges? Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment (IOCTA). Threats we are ready for and know about vs. Threats we don’t know about are not ready for. The Quantum Market Players, Challenges, and applications. What quantum security challenges do you worry about in the next decade? Jaya uses the story of Alice, Bob, and ex-girlfriend Eve to illustrate quantum security. How to teach quantum computing to a new gen of engineers.  The takeaway is that quantum security is just around the corner--because if it isn’t, we are all in trouble. Quantum computing has gone from being a theoretical possibility, to a highly experimental, niche application among a few computer firms, to a significant, emerging government concern, and a future business opportunity for those with a lot of data to crunch fast. Most of us don’t need to worry about it in this decade, but doing so, is a bit like not thinking about retirement in your twenties. It isn’t necessary, but it is smart to do.  After listening to the episode, check out Avast Software as well as Jaya Baloo's online profile: Avast Software https://www.avast.com/en-us/index#pc  Jaya Baloo (@jayabaloo} https://www.linkedin.com/in/jaya-baloo-558492/ The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

Urho Konttori,  co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Varjo, the mixed reality equipment maker, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about The Future of Industrial-grade Mixed Reality (MR).  The advent of enterprise/industrial-grade AR/VR/XR/MR/hybrid reality and its impact on RR. Which companies are using it already?  Current professional user types. Emerging use cases. Why is Varjo so focused on human-eye resolution devices and hi-res MR? We discuss adoption timelines and formfactors as well as remaining technical/market challenges.  We look into the Future of mixed reality (5-10 years ahead). The takeaway is that industrial mixed reality has now come of age. It is only a question of few years, until large swaths of industry and a plethora of professionals will depend on it to do their job. The pandemic could not have come at a bigger inflection point for the industry.  After listening to this episode, check out Varjo as well as Urho Konttori's online profile: Varjo https://varjo.com/ Urho Konttori (@konttori) https://www.linkedin.com/in/urho-konttori-aa16835/  The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

Peter High, President of Metis Strategy, Host of Technovation podcast, and 3x author, interviewed by host Trond Arne Undheim, futurist and author.  In this conversation, we talk about how Peter High came to host of The Technovation podcast (2008-) and get into Enterprise IT. How Trond Undheim came to host the Futurized podcast (2020-). We discuss the new book by Peter High: Getting to Nimble--a framework and best practices companies can use to transform their people practices, processes, technologies, ecosystems, and strategies for the digital era (2021). We also discuss a new book by Trond Undheim: Future Tech: How to Capture Value from Disruptive Industry Trends (2021), which contains case studies of how to apply the forces of disruption framework and its components: tech, regulation, business models, social dynamics. Peter shares his secrets of podcasting: a podcast is an album--greatest hits get pulled through columns, books, speeches and combos. Finally, we discuss the future of enterprise & IT.

Where Peter focuses on the transformation of people, practices, processes, technologies, ecosystems, and strategies in his book Getting to Nimble, I focus on five components: tech, regulation, business models, social dynamics, and the environment in my book Future Tech--and indeed in this podcast, Futurized. As Peter and I discovered, there's significant overlap in our perspectives but we also come from very different places. Peter's audience is CIOs, my audience is broader, which makes him the smarter one in terms of targeting. I'm not sure who of us gets to have more fun, but I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Peter. One should be very fortunate to work with him, I think." Thanks for listening. If you liked the show, subscribe at Futurized.org or in your preferred podcast player, and rate us with five stars.

Alexandra Levit, 8x author, speaker, and career expert, interviewed by Trond Undheim, futurist and author.  In this conversation, we talk about the future of careers and strategic HR. We discuss a recent book by Levit: Humanity Works: merging tech and people for the workforce of the future (2019). Alexandra and I agree that there is lots of work required to integrate tech in the workforce. Paradoxically, it requires hard, human work to adapt to new realities. We then discuss a brand new book penned by myself, Trond Undheim: Future Tech: how to capture value from disruptive industry trends--a framework for understanding tech/society (2021).  We talk about the trends of co-working, remote work, portfolio careers, gig economy, design thinking, workplace culture, experience retail, applied tech skills, the importance of training. We also discuss the future and what that entails for the workforce and for how technology will evolve.  Having listened to this episode, check out Humanity Works, Future Tech as well as Alexandra Levit and Trond Undheim's online profiles: Humanity Works: https://www.amazon.com/Humanity-Works-Merging-Technologies-Workforce/dp/0749483458 Future Tech: https://www.amazon.com/Future-Tech-Capture-Disruptive-Industry/dp/1398600326 Alexandra Levit (LinkedIn, Twitter: @alevit): https://www.alexandralevit.com/ Trond Undheim (LinkedIn, Twitter @trondau): https://trondundheim.com/ My takeaway is that paradoxically, the future of technology is not so much about tech as it is about getting the human part right. We need to train, retrain, and adapt. We will spend more time doing that than actually developing new technology. Also, successful technology requires being in close touch with its prospective users. Failing that, technology fails. The Future of work can be bright for young people if they are proactively explore the opportunities in front of them. Conversely, the world we have already entered rewards creativity and initiative. Without that, any trend, technology or otherwise, will come as an unpleasant surprise. Thanks for listening.

The Future of Cleantech

The Future of Cleantech

2021-01-0101:04:37

Neal Dikeman, Managing partner and founder of Energy Transition Ventures, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about Where do we currently stand on energy transition? Disruptive forces (tech, regulation, business models, social dynamics). What is the role of energy policy v. the free market? Which energy models to trust? The emergent energy mix and how it will evolve? When will renewables surpass fossil fuels in the US and globally? Exciting startups. Emerging business model plays. Macro trends. The role of clean energy into the next decade. The takeaway is that cleantech is coming of age. The reason is slightly counterintuitive. It is not happening because of government action, at least not (yet) in the USA. It’s not happening because more people want to save the planet. Rather, it’s happening because renewables, after a slow rise over decades, are reaching energy parity with fossil fuels. No matter what happens to policy, to global treaties, or what might be the Biden Presidency priorities, over the next few years we will witness an energy transition without parallel in our history. Add some policy action to that, and we will experience a sea change, which is about time, because sea levels are rising.  After listening to the episode, check out Energy Transition Ventures, Cleantech.org, as well as Neal Dikeman's online profile: Energy Transition Ventures https://energytransitionventures.com/ Cleantech.org http://www.cleantech.org/ Neal Dikeman (@nealdikeman) https://www.linkedin.com/in/dikeman/ Thanks for listening.

Gabriel Luna-Ostaseski is the Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer of Braintrust, the first user-controlled talent network, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, they talk about  the results from building and investing in 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation marketplaces. Is blockchain overhyped? Emerging marketplaces with non-extractive externalities and truly sharing control and ownership. The path and possible end point(s) of decentralization in the next decade and beyond. My takeaway is that next generation marketplaces that favor the users as opposed to corporations, are rare but increasingly important for the marketplace concept to survive.  After listening to the episode, check out Braintrust as well as Gabriel Luna-Ostaseski's online profile: Braintrust https://www.usebraintrust.com/ Gabriel Luna-Ostaseski (@gabelunao) https://www.linkedin.com/in/gabelunaostaseski/   The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.

Chloe Demrovsky, CEO of Disaster Recovery Institute, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.  In this conversation, we talk about The Future of Risk and Resilience. How to handle disasters. Chronic stressors v. Sudden shocks. What organizations should be worrying about right now. Risk management. How to increase resilience. Opportunities from crisis. How organizations can survive and thrive in the next decade. The takeaway is that in order to fully prepare for the next decade, there is really no way around developing a systematic take on risk and resilience. There is so much to know but a first step is to be aware of the organizations and frameworks that exist to help executives map their risk and start developing approaches that might work no matter what happens to their organizational assets in a crisis.  After listening to the episode, check out Disaster Recovery Institute and Chloe Demrovsky's online profile: Disaster Recovery Institute https://drii.org/ Chloe Demrovsky chloe-demrovsky (LinkedIn) and @ChloeDemrovsky (Twitter) The show is hosted by Podbean and can be found at Futurized.co.
