Cybersecurity: Review of the RSA Asia Pacific & Japan 2020 Virtual Event

Cybersecurity: Review of the RSA Asia Pacific & Japan 2020 Virtual Event

July 31, 2020

Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim reviews the RSA Asia Pacific & Japan 2020 Virtual Event, arguably the world's leading cybersecurity event, this time only available as a virtual event. 

 

My takeaway is that taking part in a virtual event during COVID-19 is necessary and interesting but it is not how we are going to spend the next decade. The virtual interface is okay, but not great. It lacks a lot of the contextual cues that you find in live events or indeed even in websites. There is enormous scope for improvement, to make it more seamless.

The Future of Nuclear Waste

The Future of Nuclear Waste

July 30, 2020

Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim interviews Elizabeth Muller, CEO and co-founder of Deep Isolation, the nuclear waste disposal startup, which she has founded together with renowned physicist Richard Muller, who is also her father. 

 

The takeaway is that nuclear waste is indeed a futuristic topic, given that Deep Isolation has a one million year time horizon on the efficacy of their technology. It's also interesting that drilling technology can be deployed to place canisters of nuclear waste in deep horizontal drill holes utilizing stable rock formations as a protective barrier.

Disruption Games: How to Thrive on Serial Failure–Introduction

Disruption Games: How to Thrive on Serial Failure–Introduction

July 29, 2020

Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim reads from the introduction to his book Disruption Games: How to Thrive on Serial Failure which was published by Atmosphere Press in May, 2020. 

 

The takeaway is that taking part in disruption games, just like the Olympic Games, takes training and effort. The failures along the way can be immensely valuable. However, you cannot fail too fast. For failure to be instructive, it has to have a deep cost in time and energy. You can excel at disruption games by getting a feel for the game. You can only do that by going native, going deep, where failure hurts. Full immersian has real consequences. 

 

After listening, check out Disruption Games on the author's website, where you can also find retail options for the paperback, ebook and audiobook.

The Future of Elderly Care

The Future of Elderly Care

July 28, 2020

Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim interviews Ken Accardi, CEO and founder of Ankota. 

The takeaway is that the future of elderly care, and home care specifically, is going to be shaped by predictive population health which will prevent and intervene early rather than wait until it has to deal with chronic disease, treating the symptoms, and enduring the effects of aging. 

After listening to the episode, find out more about Ankota, check out Ken Accardi's faculty profile at Babson College, where he lectures on Technology, Operations and Information Management or connect with him on Twitter and LinkedIn (akkardiken).

Killer Applications of Next Decade’s Edge Computing

Killer Applications of Next Decade’s Edge Computing

July 23, 2020

Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim interviews Carlo Daffara, CEO and co-founder of NodeWeaver, discussing the future of edge computing.

The takeaway is that the importance of edge computing lies, not in the technology itself, but in what it delivers, namely killer applications across industries. The edge is based on the realization that given the amount of data we now generate, all of that data cannot always be moved around.  

After listening, check out NodeWeaver as well as Carlo Daffara's profile on LinkedIn (cdaffara).

Reality and Hype in Deep Learning

Reality and Hype in Deep Learning

July 21, 2020

Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim interviews Otkrist Gupta, who talks about reality and hype in deep learning, a sub-field of artificial intelligence. 

The takeaway is that deep learning is a promising technique but faces steep challenges getting out of the black box of explainability, generalizability and data efficiency. The future depends on it.

The Future of Diversity in VC

The Future of Diversity in VC

July 16, 2020

Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim interviews Julianne Zimmerman, Managing Director at Reinventure Capital and lecturer at Tufts University. 

The takeaway is that there is hope for change with regards to the effect of making a bet on underrepresented founders. Dealflow is attractive. Valuations are good. There is a growing realization that the market is missing a lot of talent. Ultimately, diversity will yield products that span a wider range.

Solving for Surveillance Capitalism

Solving for Surveillance Capitalism

July 14, 2020

Futurist and author Trond Arne Undheim interviews Mathew Lowry, founder of MyHub.ai, who talks about how he sees the challenge of surveillance capitalism by big tech. 

The takeaway is that as polarized and broken as the online business model for content is, there is still a chance that humans can become more than raw material for the big tech behemoths that currently rule the space. You can also read Designing social platforms fit for the future where Mathew decribes his current quest.

The Future of Decentralized Finance

The Future of Decentralized Finance

July 9, 2020

Host and futurist Trond Arne Undheim interviews Dan Elitzer, investor at IDEO CoLab Ventures, Founder of the MIT Bitcoin Club with an MBA from MIT Sloan. 

The takeaway is that the promise of open finance is a world where everyone can freely create or deploy new financial instruments and business models without or with less of the intermediary constraints that traditional institutions have put on the system. Even if that will take decades, this is cause for optimism. It may also speed up innovation but it may perhaps not disrupt banks to the point that they disappear, which indicates that it stands a chance to strike a balance between change and continuity. 

After listening to the episode, find out more about IDEO CoLab Ventures (https://www.ideocolab.com/ventures/), read Dan Elitzer's Medium blog (@delitzer), or connect with him on Twitter (@delitzer) or LinkedIn (delitzer).

The Emergence of Remote Activism

The Emergence of Remote Activism

July 7, 2020

Futurist Trond Arne Undheim interviews Laurent Liscia, entrepreneur, author, ex-diplomat and standards activist, who talks about how remote activism helped by technology can re-ignite politics. 

The takeaway is that remote activism will be a huge force in society and will enable people to take part in important debates and support political candidates in swing states and places where it really matters.

July 2, 2020

Host and futurist Trond Arne Undheim interviews special guest Evangelos Simoudis, technologist, investor and author of the new book Transportation Transformation: How Autonomous Mobility Will Fuel New Value Chains (2020). 

The takeaway is that new mobility will unfold over the next twenty years, in different speeds depending on the savvy of city governments.
