“Yesterday is not tomorrow; we can’t innovate, we can’t do new things by opening old doors.”
– Brian Solis
As a society, we can get caught up in the excitement of advancing technology and forget to consider the negative repercussions. Cyber-attacks, election hacking and fake news are just some of the recent events that have used digital to harm; and looking into the near future, artificial intelligence and robots pose a real threat to our jobs and livelihoods. In this (darker) episode, Brian Solis, analyst, futurist, award-winning author, blogger and speaker, gives us his perspective on where we came unstuck, what’s holding us back, whether work will cease to exist and how to prepare the next generation for an unpredictable future.
But it’s not all bleak. More and more organizations are taking a fresh approach and better, more rewarding, work is emerging, so long as we’re willing to be innovative. Follow the conversation as Brian and Paul discuss why we need to take back control, how to empower the human workforce and whether organizational culture, a lifelong learning fund and a universal basic income are the answers to our digital prayers.
