In this episode, Carl looks back at the first season of Future of Humanity. From the first episode about the power of blockchain, to the last about in-vitro fertilization, Carl learned that augmented reality can change the worlds of business and health. His guests are all truly trying to make the world a better place and hopes that you will too.
Dr. Michael Chapman is a very successful fertility doctor, having helped over 3000 pregnancies. As Chair of the IVF Directors Group he worked hard to make sure In Vitro fertilization remained clinically protected. He now hosts “The IVF Journey” podcast to share his expertise with the world.
Augmented reality is becoming increasingly more common, and many wonder how we will use it. Some are hoping it can give us better, healthier lives. ArcSense is a company seeking to do just that, using bleeding edge augmented reality technology to help us deal with stress. Dr. Leila Alem is the co-founder of ArcSense, with an impressive 25-year history in the field, seeking to use augmented reality to improve our health.
Years ago, James Kemp decided he wanted to help aspiring entrepreneurs reach the success they saw as their future. Over 11 years he has helped a variety of businesses increase their sales exponentially.
When we talk about the future, it is with the knowledge that in all likelihood we will not see it. The future belongs to the next generation, which for us is Generation Z. Claire Madden is a social researcher, who has done extensive research on this new generation, compiling her research into her book “Hello Gen Z.”
As technology changes, so too do jobs that have been around for decades. To help people find new jobs, as well as to analyze trends to see where jobs are headed, Fiona Anson co-founded the website Job Getter, of which she is now the co-CEO. Job Getter originated in Australia but has recently started expanding its service overseas.
Whenever one discusses the future, the topic of space is bound to pop up. No one understands this better than Thi Hien Nguyen, founder of Spaceconnex. Spaceconnex is one of the many companies leading the charge into space today, seeking to bring together like-minded people who wish to see humanity reach the stars.
In the future, the importance of the voice of the people in democratic processes will become more and more important. In this episode, Carl talks with Jamie Skella, whose company, Horizon State, seeks to create an easy way for people to vote safely and easily from their phones. Carl discusses with Jamie how Horizon secures its voting practices the same way block chain secures itself, how to keep people educated on the subjects they are voting on.
The rise of Augmented Reality has allowed us to do so many things once considered science fiction. On this episode, Carl welcomes Noah Nehlich, owner of Structure Studios, a company that designs augmented reality programs to be used by contractors who want to plan what their completed projects will look like. Carl discusses with Noah how he developed his software, how AR will change the future, and the possible dangers of using augmented reality in daily life.
The future can be hard to predict. But on this episode of the “Future of Humanity Podcast,” Carl invites his good friend Peter Moriarty to do just that. Peter runs ITGenius.com, a website that helps small businesses use new technology to keep their business up to date. Carl and Peter discuss the rise and possible fall of Email, Space exploration, and how your identity is becoming more and more tied with technology.
