Blockchain is generating lots of hype as the future of enterprise technology. But, like the dot-com boom before it, the promise is so extravagant that some of us are feeling skeptical – and maybe just a tad confused. Medha Parlikar, CTO and Co-Founder at CasperLabs, takes us beyond the buzz to explore the true potential of blockchain in the enterprise, and the real, practical concerns facing business leaders. From patents, human resources, supply chain, identity management, and security, blockchain has already started to radically change multiple industries. And we’re just getting started. Featuring Medha Parlikar, CTO and Co-Founder at CasperLabs This episode of Innovation Heroes is sponsored by the LastPass Identity Management Security solution and the new GoTo IT tools making IT easy.

It’s easy to forget that most of us have amazing technology at our fingertips at nearly all times: our smartphones. Whether you use your phone to listen to this very podcast, to stay connected, or for entertainment, there’s huge potential that still stands to be unlocked in these devices. For instance, with the right motivation driving us forward, we can use them to start fixing our broken, out-of-date healthcare systems.  That’s the mission at Hyfe - to make it possible for anyone with a smartphone to receive instant and accurate diagnostic support. Backed by “the world’s most sophisticated acoustic AI”, the Hyfe app is used daily by researchers, medical professionals as well as thousands of regular people all over the world to identify coughs and other sonic-based symptoms in real time.   Host Ed McNamara sits down with Iulian Circo, co-founder of Hyfe. They talk about how this "Shazam for coughs” has the potential to figure out the best way for chronic cough sufferers and temporary cold fighters to get better – and how this shift towards personalized, data-rich, and equitable healthcare is ultimately helping to make the whole system a lot more useful and modern.  Featuring guest Iulian Circo, co-founder of Hyfe.  This episode of Innovation Heroes is sponsored by the recruitment team at SHI.

The future of creative innovation is changing – rapidly. In our new hybrid world, we need to be thinking about how to integrate digital and physical experiences effectively, as well as what customers actually want today, and in the future, too. These are some of the big questions that AREA 15 is trying to solve – and judging from the rave reviews they’ve been getting, it’s safe to say that they’re succeeding. Touted as “an immersive playground, all rolled into a vast and vibrant space,” AREA 15 is a tech wonderland just a stone’s throw from the infamous Las Vegas Strip.  Host Ed McNamara sits down with Michael Beneville, the Chief Creative Officer at AREA15. They discuss the major paradigm shift unfolding in the guest experience space: one that’s striving to give consumers more agency. They’ll also shed a guiding light on what not just mere spectatorship, but true tech-driven participation can look like.     Featuring guest Michael Beneville, Chief Creative Officer at AREA15 and Founder and CEO of Beneville Studios.  This episode of Innovation Heroes is sponsored by the new SHI.

It's a new year, but we’re still facing a lot of our old 2021 problems: the global climate is changing fast, we continue to run low on chips thanks to supply chain shortages, and the population of the planet continues to boom, making for more hungry mouths to feed. It might just be time to look to the stars for some solutions – and by the stars, we mean low-cost, on-demand, designed-to-fly-daily rockets. Creating sustainable and commercialized space flight could not only solve our short-term problems of how to get satellites into orbit more cheaply and efficiently – they could completely change our lives here on Earth.    Host Ed McNamara sits down with Andy Lapsa, Co-Founder of STOKE Space Technologies Inc. Andy’s spent the last decade working at Blue Origin, where he directed the BE-3 and BE-3U Engines projects and served as development test lead for the BE-4. Now, he’s starting his own space flight venture with the mission of making a completely reusable second stage rocket. Andy says the next 5-10 years of space tech development is going to have huge implications for our future; so, it’s going to be crucially important that we make the final frontier accessible, affordable, and sustainable – and that we figure out how to do it as soon as possible.  Featuring guest Andy Lapsa, Co-Founder at STOKE Space Technologies, Inc.   This episode of Innovation Heroes is brought to you by Autodesk.

The Internet can be a hotbed for some of the worst aspects of digital society, but there’s lessons to be learned from the data we create in these unsavoury interactions. Network Visualization is an advanced analytic technique that can be used to turn the vast, intimidating mountain of our social data into stunning pictures of online communities. This kind of analysis can help us do a better job of parsing out the truth from the rest of the background noise, and maybe even show us the tools we need to help make the Internet a more hopeful place again.  Host Ed McNamara sits down with Alexandra Pavliuc, a doctoral researcher who’s using this kind of network visualization to make sense of the bigger picture. Examining everything from tweets by state-run political accounts to targeted sexism propagated by trolls, she says that this kind of analysis could be the first step in figuring out how to make the Internet a safer and more equitable place for all - and how to help both individual users and the leaders of these networks figure out what it means to do their part.    Featuring guest Alexandra Pavliuc, Doctoral Researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute.   This episode of Innovation Heroes is brought to you by Women in SHI.

The team running Rutgers University’s supercomputer cluster has been busier than ever since the start of the pandemic. Today, they’re supporting the advanced computing needs for over 350 projects for hundreds of users all around the globe. From Dentistry to Astronomy, the work they support is truly changing the world – and sheds light on the real potential of today’s most powerful computing machines. But the real heroes are the IT staff, who not only maneuvered through the massive boom of pandemic demands, but continue to help make high resource computing accessible – and equitable – for a vibrant and varied research community.  Host Ed McNamara sits down for the last episode of 2021 with an expert from the Office of Advanced Research Computing, who’s fighting to give credit to the unsung heroes behind this amazing tech – because innovation is nothing without communication and a focus on equality.   Featuring guest Barr von Oehsen, Associate Vice President of the Office of Advanced Research Computing at Rutgers University.  This episode of Innovation Heroes is brought to you by the Samsung Galaxy Book.

It’s American Thanksgiving tomorrow... a time to reflect on everything that’s happened in the last year. For the Innovation Heroes podcast team, that means thinking about the semiconductor shortage that’s been generating headlines – and with good reason. These little chips are in pretty much every electronic device you can think of, and there’s just not enough of them to go around. But COVID-19 isn’t the only reason we’re experiencing shortages; really, it’s just the last domino to fall in a cascade that’s spanned the last decade of technological development. But regardless of the true cause of the shortages, we need answers as to how exactly we’re going to get ourselves out of this mess. Host Ed McNamara sits down with two experts who say we have to start making the best of what we have, and finding ways to make sustainable maintenance make economic sense. Because the fate of not just the supply chain, but the world as we know it, depends on it. Featuring guests Sumit Puri, CEO & Co-Founder at Liqid, and Camberley Bates, Managing Director & Analyst at Evaluator Group.
